Day #996 Title: Who Needs Camouflage?
Location: Billericay
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm EF f/1.7
Notes: After a lunchtime meeting in Billericay, I went for a quick stroll in the park while the sun was out. I found this ladybird rather conspicuously sitting on a Choisia leaf.

Day #930 Title: Summer Teasel
Location: Ulting
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 60mm EF-S f/2.8 USM
Notes: Having spent the day at home polishing off various jobs, I went out for a drive this evening to Ulting, intending to photograph the sunset. However, I had slightly miscalculated the position in the sky at this time of year, and didn’t get the shot I wanted. I did find this teasel in flower, however, and as I’m more used to seeing them dried up in the autumn, I thought I would record it for posterity.

Day #911 Title: Jasmine Flowers
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 60mm EF-S f/2.8 USM
Notes: I make no apology that I seem to be going through a bit of a flower/macro phase at the moment. I’m really enjoying using the 60mm macro lens, and this time of year there is plenty of naturally beautiful things at which to point it! This is one of the little fragrant Jasmine flowers which cover the arch over my back gate. They have just started to bloom since the weekend. The smell is wonderful, and reminds me that Summer is here at last! A great addition for the Treasure Hunt Theme 44 – Things I Love Or Hate.

Day #909 Title: U Is For Underneath
Location: Writtle
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I enjoyed a photowalk with a couple of Flickr friends this morning, on footpaths around Writtle. We decided to attempt an A-Z as we were going around, and this was my favourite of the set.

Day #904 Title: Pollen Sweeper
Location: Buttsbury Ford, Ingatestone
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 60mm EF-S f/2.8 USM
Notes: This evening I enjoyed a quick stroll to Buttsbury Ford. There were lots of insects buzzing about, and this busy worker was hoovering up the pollen like it had gone out of fashion.

Day #890 Title: Urban Foxgloves
Location: Gray’s Inn Road, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm EF f/1.7
Notes: I was in London all day for a training course, but found time to nip out during a break to grab a few shots in the courtyard of Goodenough College, where the course was being held. I was quite surprised to find these foxgloves growing in one corner.
