At the start of spring this year I wasn't expecting to meet up with this fella again. Firstly would he return and secondly the lockdown may have prevented a trip to see him. So when the opportunity arose it was great to be in the company of an old acquaintance again.
Having photographed a Common Tern on my local lake recently another opportunity arose when I went to Staines Reservoir at the weekend. I'm fast becoming a fan of these elegant birds, this was one of the better flight shots I managed to take, I just love that tail!

A beautiful Fly Orchid in the Surrey Hills yesterday. I probably picked the worst time for trying to photograph plants, with the gusty wind we've had in recent days. But I did manage to get a few shots during the lulls.
