Day #583

Day #583 Title: Blackberry Thief
Location: Hanningfield Nature Reserve
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 100-400mm EF f/4.5-5.6 L IS
Notes: This afternoon, I went on a nature walk with local Flickr friend Paul as another 40@40 event. He’s a very good nature photographer and was spotting all sorts of butterflies as we walked around. We tried photographing dragonflies by a pond, but they were very flighty and didn’t hold still at all. Then as we were walking along I was very pleased to find this one myself – I really don’t know why I looked at this particular blackberry bush through my long lens, but as soon as I did, I knew we had found a beauty, a Migrant Hawker.
