A Boring Day plus a 105mm Lens gets an airing!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty back again.

Well, we all know it has been warm today but here it has been rather boring, in fact it has been boringly boring and I do mean boring!

Old Two Legs finally got out his 105mm lens and off he went chasing bugs!

Holly and I wanted a game of chase or even have OTL walking next to us but today we seemed to spend ages waiting for him to finish off waving the camera about!

First he started of with a caterpillar of the Cinnabar Moth, a sort of red and black daytime moth.

Is it yellow with black rings or black with yellow rings?
OTL got all excited and pointed out the big stiff hairs on the body, a sort of protection in case a bird tries to eat it!

A fine set of hairs mate!
 Holly and I stay away from little bugs that have a defence mechanism that might hurt us!

No, leave that one,it's got pincers!
 We were busy shiffing the sniffs when Cody came lolloping up and wanted to know what OTL was doing with his head in the grass and his tail in the air!

Is he alright like that?
 We told him wot OTL was doing and how daft we think it is!

He got a shot of this butterfly which normally lands and folds it's wings but this one kept it's wings open, just for OTL!

Yep! I'm a Gate Keeper!
 There were loads of these red Dragonflies that were zooming all over the place. OTL recons that the zoom about just like the Golden Snitch in Harry Potter!

Hurry up, take the photo I can't hang about any longer!
 Then, Zoom and off he went like a streak of light!

We cam across one that was resting on a leaf getting a rest before carrying on zooming all over the place!

This mating stuff is rather tiring!
The rest of the day has been spent 'Manufacturing' I mean he had loads of cable all over the place in fact is was a whole half a kilometre when it started!

Now it is all packaged up and ready for the carriers tomorrow, so, with any luck we should get some attention tomorrow!

Must go, I sniff Doggy Scoff being served up and I'm starving!

See you tomorrow!
