Bee Orchid, Far Ings
Another day of super weather, although more overcast than of late. I went to Far Ings today to help my wife's school with their field trip on habitats. Having discharged my duties by 2.30 I was able to indulge myself with some photography. The first objective was the bee orchids just outside the visitor centre at Far Ings. Although these are nearing the end ogf their flowering season I was pleased with the pictures. I then moved on to Messingham Sand Quarry. Although I saw some ne species: male and female emperor, brown hawker and male broad bodied chaser none of them were perching for photographs. I did,however manage to get pictures of the ringlet butterflies that were in abundance. The other notable observation was the thousands of toadlets that were about, in one area they were a writhing mass!!!
