🖤🖤 #Repost @watertoodle with @get_repost ・・・ Giant barrel jellyfish spotted in Cornwall! 😮 This jellyfish clocks in at 1.5m in length and was spotted during Wild Ocean Week. @dalylizzie , alongside underwater cinematographer @sharkman_dan who captured this image, spent seven days travelling around Britain to showcase its wildlife, encountering seals, minke whales and huge seabird colonies along the way.While barrel jellyfish are known for being large in size and are common around UK coasts in the warmer summer months, Lizzie and Dan both said they have never seen one quite this big! . . . . . #jellyfish #ukwildlife #marinewildlife #britishwildlife #ocean #oceanphotography #underwaterphotography #animals #wildlife #wildlifephotography #nature #naturelovers #planetearth #earthlovers #earth
Had two late night visitors to the garden just now. I'm guessing a male and female going by their size. #hedgehog #hedgehogs #uknature #ukhedgehogs #sussex #nature #wildlife #ukwildlife
We found a field vole in our garden! We didn't want it to get lawn-mowered so we relocated it to a rubble pile just outside of our garden with plenty of places for it to hide. It was so cute and calm and brave!! Excuse mum's wobbly videoing lol . . . . . . . . . . . . #nature #wildlife #animals #animal #countryside #field #vole #fieldvole #rodent #rodents #mouse #mice #rats #cute #ukwildlife #garden #gardening #outdoors #uk #yorkshire #countrylife #adorable #insta #instagram
Another session with this beautiful lady on Saturday 😍
Found a few cinnabar moth caterpillars munching away on some yellow-flowered ragwort. As you may know, ragwort is toxic when consumed and many horse keepers have to make sure their fields are clear so that the horses don't get poisoned. However, these caterpillars are completely immune to the toxins and actually use them to build up a toxicity of their own. The bright yellow and black bands warn potential predators of a meal they should avoid! #tyriajacobaeae #cinnabar #caterpillar #caterpillars #entomology #bugs #bug #insectsofinstagram #insects #lepidoptera #butterflies #butterfly #butterflyphotography #blackandyellow #yellow #black #stripes #patterns #nature #naturephotography #toxic #ragwort #plants #flora #flowers #ukwildlife #wildlife #wild #colours #britishwildlife
As you can see I've been a little obsessed with #butterflies Having some time off just to wander around the fields and hedgerows on a sunny summers day you get to see some real beauties.

Blackbird making a splash this afternoon in my cobbled together bird bath. Birds are going to need all the water they can get with temperatures set to soar in the South of England this coming week. #ukbirds #wildlife #ukwildlife #bbcspringwatch2019 #countryfilemag #lovenature #blackbird #bbcengland #bbcenglandsbigpicture #birdphotos #birdsofinstagram

The six-spot burnet, the most common of the burnet moth family found in the United Kingdom. Although you have to be careful when identifying this specific species as the spots at the top of the wings sometimes fuse together confusing it with other burnet moth species. The six spot burnet can be found in meadows and woodland clearings, even on cliff faces, that are rich in flowers and grasses. The 2 sexes are remarkably similar. The fore wings are dark metallic green with six vivid red spots that stand out. Amazingly these spots will sometimes appear yellow or even black ⭕️ #female #femalephotographer #photographer #photography #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifephotographer #nature #naturephotography #sixspotburnet #burnetmoth #mothconservation #conservation #butterflyconservationtrust #btc #cannon700d #cannonphotography #cannonphotographer #conservationstudent #britishwildlife #unitedkingdom #ukwildlife #ukconservation #northumberland #northumberlandia #northeastuk #northumberlandwildlife #northumberlandwildlifetrust
