Stand and Deliver

Nemastoma bimaculatum


I'm the dandy harvestman who you're too scared to mention
I spend my cash on looking flash and grabbing your attention.

#OneRiver: Narborough

OneRiver Narborough


Sliding past reed beds the silty Soar slips slowly by.
Plastic coats the banks,
the water is muddy but clean.
Kingfishers and otters don't seem to mind
too much.


There was a Kingfisher flypast just before I took this sequence. Which, obviously, I missed.

Silpha atrata

Silpha atrata


A handsome beast (in my opinion). Snail killer - that narrow head is designed to reach deep inside the mouth of the shell.

The supreme disappointment

The supreme disappointment


Landscape photography is the supreme test of the photographer, and often the supreme disappointment.

In spite of it all, it was great to finally be able to get back to the river this morning.
