A bit of a newly found interest and a change from railway photography. All of the images were taken using my Nikon D810 using either a Nikkor Micro 200mm1:4D lens or with a Nikkor 70-200mm f2.8 in DX Mode and cropped or a Nikkor 50mm f1.4 lens wih the addition of Kenko Extension tubes of 12, 20 or 36mm or combination lengths
There are so many different groups, species and sub species in the insect world it would be impossible to cover them all so these collections just cover general sightings on my various rambles around the British countryside and are not meant to be a scientific reference in any way. Besides, some of the little beasties are so similar to each other it would need a qualified Entomologist to identify an actual sample and I'm not quite that hooked on the subject to go to all that trouble just yet!
I have used various websites to try and identify the insects in these collections including BBC Nature, UK Safari, Nature spot.org and the Royal Entomological Society to name just a few.
Some identities might well be incorrect so if you see a mistake please let me know so I can change the info.
