The Wilden Marsh Blog

Daily Archives: July 10, 2018

Thousands of harlequin ladybirds, of every type and size and in every stage of development, are invading the hemlock plants.

I saw this dragonfly in front of me, so I quickly shot it with my 150-500mm telephoto lens.

A view south from the middle of North Pasture at 8.47pm last evening. The breeze died within seconds, the birds stopped singing, silence descended on the pasture. The temperature seemed to rise. I stood still, listened and waited for something to happen. Then, as if a switch was flicked, life on the marsh resumed. I guess the silence lasted around 15 seconds. It was very spooky.
