Nature Diary - What to photograph in May

16th May 2009
As photography is not my job it is often a case of grabbing time when I can to take pictures. Although this can be difficult it does mean that when you do get a few minutes you have to ensure you remain focused so that precious time isn't wasted. Some of the species I hope to see and photograph this month are:-

Badgers - we have a sett nearby and as the days get longer badgers will tend to veture out earlier to forage for food. The site is not easy for photography however, being covered in trees.

Macro/Insect photography - I always find this is a useful standby when what you went out to take pictures of isn't playing ball. A closer look in the nearest hedgerow should reveal dozens of different species.

Reptiles - If we get any sun then the ideal time to visit a reptile site is early in the morning as they bask to get their bodies up to temperature.

Garden Birds - Keep that feed station going. Traditionally people tend to forget to keep feeding the birds as summer approaches. Not only will you be doing the birds a favour as they feed young but it also provides you with a useful photography site to catch a quick half hour when you are pushed for time.

Hopefully images from thse sessions should appear as the month unfolds, with perhaps a few surprises!
