Hedgehog

Hedgehog // 02 10 15274 // 365

This little fella was found by some year 7’s at work. He was stuck down a hole/drain in some water.
He was fished out (Which was quite a challenge as he was a pretty big hedgehog and it was a small hole) and he spent the afternoon with me and my class drying off.
He was released back into the wild at the end of the day 🙂

Silhouetted stag and deers on the horizon!

Silhouetted Stag // 21 09 14264 // 365

This afternoon (a very late afternoon until just before sunset) me and some photo friends went out to photograph some wild deer. Yesterday was a bit of a test run for this event; with the ultimate aim being to return during rutting season.
The walk wasn’t as bad as I feared, although lugging a 150-500mm zoom lens, camera with battery park and tripod around with me wasn’t the easiest of adventures but I am glad that I went – and most importantly I am looking forward to going back 😀

I decided to go for something a bit different with the edits as it was pretty overcast, or bland (the deer are pretty much the same colour as the landscape). Actually in quite a few of the shots the deer just look very grumpy indeed, and I also seem to have managed to capture an ‘action’ pooing shot; so that is just lovely!

Tropical Butterfly House, Sheffield068 // 365

This morning (quite literally, we got there before it was even open!) me and a couple of other photo friends went to the Tropical Butterfly House in Anston, Sheffield.
Mr Owl

I have been a couple of times before; which if you know that I used to be terrified of butterflies is quite the achievement! The first time I went I was a bit apprehensive, but ever since that first time I have been fine and dandy.
Mr Lemur

I’ve not been for just over a year. Last year I went in February half term, so it’s a week later.
It has changed a lot. Last year they were building the lemur enclosure, this year there were lemurs and (much to my absolute glee) otters. I *freaking* love otters. They are my most favourite animal ever.
It’s only a small place, but it is well worth a visit – especially (I guess) if you have small children (Everything is close together).
Mr Flutterby

Made doubly amazing by the fact that the weather is just delightful today! I’m always freezing cold unless it’s hot and I’m in direct sunlight (like a lizard if you will), but I had fairly thin tights on, and a thin cardi and I was OK!
Lovely day ^_^
