Croft Pool and Stithians


Hi, Went to Croft Pool on The Lizard hoping to get some shots of the Hobby that occasionally visits.  Manged to get one only so I will visit again soon. Despite the sun it was somewhat cold at Stithians and water levels appear to be dropping this year. The single cygnet continues to survive and looks like it is doing well. Fairly quiet day so straight on to the images.


Hobby: Just did one fly by, typical I wanted some dragon fly hunting shots!

Finch:  I just liked the composition on this one.
