Large Red Damselfly

Large Red Damselfy taken 15 May 2005 at Cupola Ponds. This is the first of the year that I photograped. The light colour and its dopey behaviour meant it had probably only emerged that day.

Coolpix 4500.

Kestrel taken at Ogston reservoir using a Canon A40 through Kowa 612 scope.


This photo of a bat was taken in complete darkness on Walton Dam. I used my bat detector to listen for bats in front of me then clicked the camera when the clicks became loud as the bats approached. The picture has been zoomed in and enhanced using Photoshop. If you look carefully you can see its eyes.
