Earnley Garden

Hi folks,

well here we are back again with my dodgy knee.  Bit of a struggle at the computer so you will have to fill in the names yourself.

The following were taken just down the road from the campsite in Earnley near Chichester at a place that was billed as "Earnley Butterflies Birds & Beasts", that will give you some idea of what we found.

The temperature in the butterfly enclosure was 37 deg C which is nearly 100 deg F and the camera lens took some minutes to acclimatise to the humidity.  There were plenty to see if only they would stay still for more than a second I could have stood a better chance but then that is part of the  "fun" of it!  

Finally a Golden Pheasant, we last saw one of these in Exbury Gardens, Hampshire a few years ago.

I took some more,  look in tomorrow.

Best regards, Mike
