On with the computer and out with the camera some 20 minutes later I took this shot of the Moon and Venus which sadly had separated some distance in the sky.Nothing to do with leps but thought I would share.
Sadly the photo doesnt shown how bright it was at 6am
At 9.45am this morning,with the sun shining beautifully,without a cloud in the sky I visited Beacon Hill just outside Church Crookham where there are vaste swathes of Heather,Gorse,Scots Pine and Birch to say but a few.
I walked along the path taking a few shots of LFP mentioned above to add to the species pages, and was hoping that I would possibly see the odd butterfly.
Sadly the "too bright sun or watery sun as I call it" told me clouds were on the way, and sure enough they soon appeared.With Beacon Hill being high up there is usually a wind and this was the case this morning, although it was light is was dropping the temperature.
I did however see a single Brimstone that was shaking as it tried to hide in the heather for protection.
I stuck out my finger and the Brimstone hopped on for a warm and stayed there for a while before I placed it on a very low growing Birch sapling that are more like weeds in this neck of the woods.
As the sun came out again the Brimstone went on its way, and I decided I was cold enough and came back home.
Point 2 - Being outside is more fun than looking outside.
