Plenty of you already know I came back from South Wales last weekend, things have been a bit busy so I didn't have time to write anything about it sooner


With Covid-19 around it wasn't the usual seaside holiday, normally we spend most days shopping, eating ice-cream, in cafe's and on beaches that are so busy we have to arrive early to get a space for the tent. This time we didn't do any of that, instead we played it safe and went to quiet, out of the way places and did lot's of walking. For the most part walking was good, other times we had to turn around because the field the footpath went through was... occupied...

Those "out of the way" places did seem to be a lot more elusive than normal, there was far more people there than there ever has been before, possibly because, with travel restrictions in place, a large number of people are staying within the UK this year? Unfortunately more people means more accidents, we saw a coast guard rescue twice in two weeks. For the first one an RLNI life boat was called out and the second required a helicopter

As far as photography goes, I had one aim for the holiday and that was to get better at taking long exposure photographs of water, I think I did OK ;)

I saw a bit of wildlife as well, here's the lizard that I couldn't identify, not the best picture :( but any ideas?

also an insect that looks like it has mites of some kind mites on it? freaky :o

and I got a bit too close to ants when I put my tripod in there nest (will try not to do that again), it took me ages to get them all off and I got bitten

Over all, it was a interesting adventure :D :) :nod: :happybounce: :w00t:

Nice pics! I have read about insects parasiting other ones but never seen them like that ... :o

Thanks :D


I've never seen it either, it freaked me out a bit, even more so when I found another insect with the same red parasites on it:
