As a change from butterfly hunting, a walk along the river bank adjacent to the local Parkland was called for. This below is a shot of the tributary to one of the main lakes. It runs into the river a part of which I intend to follow.
There is much Narrow and other boat activity as a result of this fine weather.
Well OK, there had to be some butterflies as you can't miss them at the moment.
A female Large White Butterfly.
A first shot of the river.
Bat willow trees.
In the distance you can just see the herd of cows that I will photograph
Some are sheltering under the trees from the intense sun.
Some of the calves produced by the resident cows of the herd.
A shot of the individual responsible for all these calves.
He was singularly unimpressed by my presence as you can tell from the look on his face.
A Freshwater Mussel Shell.
Male Gatekeeper Butterfly.
Male Brimstone Butterfly
Female Brimstone Butterfly.
Another female Large White.
This is the point where I leave the river bank and return to the Parkland.
