Another local selection

Another local selection of species has been added to the wildlife gallery today. The Wild Boar was photographed using a very wide angle lens and a remote trigger, and shows the boar resting after a session of rooting the forest floor. The Lesser Swallow Prominent was photographed in warmer times earlier this year, as was the Wood White butterfly seen here on a bluebell. All photographs were taken close to home in the Forest of Dean.
