Yep its official spring has arrived with vengeance. Temperatures have been up in the high teens here in the north of Scotland, and so I have been running round like a headless chicken trying to fit as much photography in as possible, and as predicted more time is needed. Now im not saying the weather has to be good for photography, but the reality is images look good when the sun shines. It can be a double edge sword though as there have been times this week, when I have literally been casting a shadow over the early spring flowers in order to get the images required. Having an understanding girlfriend is a real bonus at moments like those, It / she make’s life so much easier than the usual, “I need to be in two places at the same time mode” that I usually find myself in. (Probably would be wise to say thank you to her at this point)
As we head into April I’m really looking forward to the emergence of the smaller creatures as this is an area I intend to explore more this year. Already I have seen the odd Peacock and Small Tortoiseshell butterflies knocking about along with the Common Scotch Argus again showing earlier than other years.
And so its back to being a chicken again. Keep your eye on the galleries to see some of the work and im now going to spend an evening in the company of skittish badgers that’s if I can stay awake long enough.
Thanks for your interest.
