A Beetle

A Beetle – European Ground Beetle – Purple-rimmed Carabus – Carabus nemoralis

Whenever I go out for one of my nature walks, it seems that I end up with a new creature that I haven’t met before.

Caravaning in Scotland

A Touch of Scottish Yellow - Benderlach, Scotland

Caravaning in Scotland

Jim had planned for us to head north in his truck hauling his caravan to a caravan park north of Oban, Scotland.  He felt that he could handle the preparations quite well without me :-), so, while he was getting things ready for the trip, I had a few hours to travel to Eglinton Country Park near Irvine, Scotland to meet up with another photographer, Stevie Manson to photograph the flora and fauna of the area. Some of the birds that Stevie had hoped to show me didn’t materialize and it was a bit breezy for insects but we did manage to have some fun shooting what we found.
