Apparently this is a good year for the Berkshire Snake's Head Fritillarias - certainly they looked wonderful covered in dew from this morning's mists when I stopped off on my way home. I am not sure if I like them against the grass or the sky - with the shift lens it is easy to change their relative position. I also used the 50 macro and the 24-105mm

Sunny but cold wind at Lakenheath on Saturday resulted in a poor show of small birds but the larger species were active, including a female Marsh Harrier with nesting material. The spider is yet to be identified. The reeds and poplar woods made great backdrops in the sunlight and even the Coot obliged by having a wash in the late afternoon sunlight.
This little grebe kept us well entertained at Lackford Lakes today practising its dance. We didn't see a partner but perhaps she is busy sitting on eggs. Video made using Photoshop sequencing module.
