I didn't have much time for photography over the last couple of months due to being busy moving house from Edinburgh to Wirral and starting a new job at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine.
All I managed was to spend a couple of mornings at Burton Marsh and Inner Marsh Farm (both less than 5 miles from my new home). It was a bit slow on the bird front, with only a family of Whitethroats and a Reed Bunting to keep me amused.
Consequently, I spent most of my time photographing insects...
This very common beetle got its macabre name from its colour. It is, however, completely harmless.
Painted Lady (Cynthia cardui) caterpillar
Sloe Bug (Dolycoris baccarum)
