A few more shots from Yesterday when I visited Hothfield Nature Reserve near Ashford. Whilst watching the Keeled Skimmers there were a good number of Orchids in flower which I have since found out were Heath Spotted Orchids. I must be getting old as I have started to take photos of flowers and even googling Orchids in Kent and when they flower, whatever next!
Heath Spotted Orchid (I think)
I have to admit they do look very nice though and at least they stay still for a photo unlike every subject I decide to more or less photograph. After leaving I spent some time in East Blean Woods and photographed some Heath Fritillary butterflies and my first Large Skipper. Again the 10d has worked quite well here.
Hopefully I will get the call this week and my camera will be back and ready for next weekend. In the mean time I shall spend the week planning my next Orchid, Dragonfly, Bird and Butterfly trips and maybe get out if I am lucky after work during the week.
