I have, before, shared photographs of little creatures around us. They are fascinating and living in the country, we see our fair share of them.
Some of them are unidentifiable; like this chap that looks like a giant mosquito but doesn’t whine, sting or bite.
Master Malachite loves the agapanthus in our front garden. Always on the move, He’s hard to capture with a mere bridge camera. This photograph was a surprise; I could never have imagined that his black and white wings.
Another flying surprise: I had been trying (in vain) to capture the interesting light on the side of the mountain, and was doing so from our front porch. When I downloaded and looked at the photograph, I discovered an almighty photobomb.
Either Jack or Jill had been heading home.
We are quite accustomed to their swooping under the eaves and around us, so I took it for granted. Here, she looks enormous, but they are tiny – 10 to 24 cm (3.9–9.4 in).
On another note
A bit cheeky for a more-than-rank amateur, but hey, why not?
