A couple of weeks ago I spent a somewhat frantic hour roaming my favourite patch of the Lomond Hills, camera in hand to capture the wonderful creatures that live there in high summer.
I didn’t have to move much. There’s incredible profusion pretty much everywhere.
There were, frankly, more creatures and plants than I could ever hope to photograph in one month, yet alone one hour. Of the ones I did try to snap, many were skittish and I couldn’t get good photos of them. The images here therefore represent only a tiny proportion of the species I encountered, and an even tinier proportion of the species you’d find if you REALLY tried hard.
Anyway, there’s a good selection and hopefully it shows what wonderful diversity, beauty and weirdness you can find in just sixty minutes on a hillside.
