Hedgehog – winter spotting 

I almost walked over this poor little hedgehog this morning! In November – fancy that! The fact that it went totally still and pretended to be part of the background didn’t help at all..

Not the worlds best photo by a very long way, but the best I could without stressing the animal or muddying my work clothes!

Common Blue Butterfly – Female

I seem to have forgotten to post this photograph of a British butterfly to go with the other two I have posted before. The picture is that of a common blue butterfly. The males are bluish in colour but the females have varying amounts of blue.

Seems like a good way to remember the summer gone by and the dreary winters yet to come!
