A few images from another of my recent regular strolls around Bookham Common.
A very tatty Silver-washed Fritillary.
While treading quietly through the woods I caught a glimpse of a Doe as she darted across a side track and shortly after I heard a repeated barking call from my left and then a Roe buck erupted from the undergrowth, stopped briefly looking the other way, then turned and swiftly continued chasing after his female.
I was so surprised by the speed of the action unfolding that I just pointed and fired off a few shots and only realised afterwards that the camera was on the wrong settings!
Lots of Small Coppers around at the moment and a fly gets in on the act!
I also spent some time trying to locate a young Common Buzzard that was constantly 'mewing' from its perch deep in a wooded area but there was too much foliage in the way for a decent shot so I had to make do with an overhead view when it decided to fly away!
Finally another slightly less tatty Silver-washed Fritillary......FAB.
