Ruby-tailed Wasp on the entrance gate to Veronica's Farm, Bryher, Isles of Scilly. Had always wanted to photograph these beauties - and there they are just ten paces from the quay. Simply stunning!

Lots of fun wee beasties during an enjoyable rock-pooling visit to St Martins - as ever, a favourite activity on a favourite island and our favourite archipelago!

A highlight of this trip to Scilly was the prospect of finding Violet Sea Snails. A fabulous wee find from the tropics - these snails have a float (there's probably a better name for them!) which keeps them up at the surface where they follow the ocean's currents until they bump in to Portuguese Man O'Wars - which they (the snails) then eat!

Nice lot of Black-tailed Godwits at Oare Marshes on the way home yesterday - freshly back here on their wintering grounds. Not always the easiest species to snap as they power through...
