Today I have a new goal in mind. I am hoping to find a bale of turtles! Yes, I used the collective noun for turtles, a whole bunch of them, a bale!
Earlier this week I took a picture of a Painted Turtle resting on a partially submerged log, just the one turtle with its reflection in the water below it!
Almost every morning I can usually find female wood ducks in my favourite pond. Today I think I will take my 400 mm lens with me when I go there to have a look for them again. I think these ducks are the young of this year's hatchlings. the fuzzy looking head of the female reminds me of a baby creature . I love the outstanding white patterning surrounding the female's eye. There is no mistaking her identity.

Whenever I notice Common Primrose in bloom along the roadsides I start looking for the beautiful little night moth that feeds on it. The first time I saw a pink Primrose moth nestled within a closed withered blossom, I had thought I was looking at a new wildflower that I had found. Not so, for as I got closer I discovered it was a tiny, pink moth within the bloom. These little moths only inhabit the Primrose blossom at night and as night comes to an end the Primrose will close its blossoms and the moth becomes stuck within the blossom as can be seen within the yellow Primrose blossom below.
