Some scenes and images from my recent Parkland walk which extended along the main river and some open farmland.
A female Large White Butterfly
Male Black-tailed Skimmer basking in the sun on a rock beside the river.
Crop irrigation with the water being pumped from the river.
Barley turning golden in the sun.
Along the river bank. A good spot here for butterflies that favour open grassland.
Mute Swans getting angry with other Mute Swans.
I am not sure what these are. They could be crab apples, but are also shaped like a plum and soft.
A very well worn Four-spotted Chaser Butterfly.
A golden field of Tuscany, well not quite and about 800 miles out.
This female Peacock Butterfly was hidden away in foliage trying to get as much sun as possible and I couldn't get a better angle to take the shot.
