Over this period I have also identified a multitude of ideal spotter locations in the New Forest and East Dorset, with a list of perfect 'hot spots' on record for spotting all popular species.
Few hobbies are as rewarding as those which combine the tranquillity of relaxing by sun blazoned forest ponds, the excitement and anticipation of seeing a rare species, and the joy and fulfilment of capturing it on camera.
I am not a scientist, nor entomologist, and as such please don't expect to be blinded by science and jargon, or to be overwhelmed with ecological information or migration patterns! There are many more valuable sites of this nature on the web for those who are interested. This site sets out to share my photography and video footage, along with the associated techniques with fellow enthusiasts.
To accompany the media I have included references to flight times, behaviors and locations that have all been derived through my own personal experience.
Many of the photographs included are a result of many patient hours spent sat in mud, poised with a camera waiting for an opportune moment to take the perfect shot.
