Enjoy the small stuff..
The past few week I have been taking my camera to work with me to try and get a shot of the two Linnets that visit the gravel path out side college, they have managed to get spooked and fly of before the camera has even come out of the bag.
To day the morning was sunny and warm, so after work headed straight up to the Chevin, above Otley, most of you will know I visit this area quite a lot.
Insects were making good use of the fresh flowering Bilberry.
Many birds were singing away, including Chiffchaff and Willow warbler, not sure which one this is, as it is easier to I.D if singing.
Loving seeing all the Dandelions out big pans of yellow and just as important for insects as any other flower, and they look just as lovely when in seed.

Great for insects and birds like this Meadow pipit, they love to stand on top of the branches and sing.
Next spotted amongst the heather and grass, was a Long horn moth ( Adela reaumurella)
found a few Harlequin ladybirds to day
and one tiny cream spot ladybird in the top of a nettle.
what do you think it is ?
A rather large wasp was found in the bramble, not getting to close to this one.
It was very nice to see some insects for a change, very low on butterflies at the moment though.
I will leave you with a Dandelion photo as I think they are looking rather nice.
