Spoiler: show
The awe-inspiring Alligator Snapping turtle - they grow to a vast size (look the pics up of big ones on the web) and are truly prehistoric in appearance - a large individual can slice a broomstick in half with one snap of it's fearsome jaws. :thumbsup:

Just a rather nice Argentinosaurus reconstruction to show it's vast size. :thumbsup:

Here's a few spring pics.

Horse chestnut with whitebeam behind. All these horse chestnut leaves will show disease from leaf blotch fungus by summer.

Peacock butterfly.

It never showed the big eyespots on its hindwings, unfortunately, before it buggered off.

Absolutely beautiful photos. :wubbers:

Thank you. :Hiya:

A giant Brachyopoid Temnosponyl - not had much publicity but it could be the largest amphibian of all time overtaking Prionosuchus and Mastodonsaurus. It was absolutely massive and the head alone looks like it weighed well over a ton! :thud:

Little Egret nesting – and watching me. This was at 32x on my little ixus camera, so quite a distance up in the treetops.


Image

Blackthorn blossom, I think. On the far side of the River Mole, so I couldn't get to it.


Image

Bluebell, native rather than the newer Spanish variety.

This little fellow followed me on the other side of the fence, all along the path.
