This is a Viceroy butterfly. It looks very similar to the monarch. I’ve been shooting butterflies for years and this is my first for the Viceroy. The curved lines on the lower wings gives it away.

Who knew that Australian native cockroaches are so pretty? And as someone who loathes the cockroaches I see in my house, that is something I never thought I'd say!

Ditto. I don't like them crawling over me at night but they are photogenic. I particularly like their transparent shield over the head like in your first shot.

I was really pleased to spot these tiny newborn smooth snakes when I was out doing voluntary habitat management work on a heathland site. They are the rarest snake species in the UK.

Wow! I experienced giant puppets in Spain and Mexico but not when I lived in Oxford. Nice, Steve.

 

Here's what they're doing in Merseyside. Yeah, I'm becoming addicted to sky changing.

I know it is November but these images have been sat in QC the latter two weeks of October and only given a pass recently. That is why they are going in the October thread.
Because I am behind with this you will see a lot together.

Allan, I can see a big uptick in the images you take, subject matter especially, from way back. I only hope to do the same. We all should strive for that.
