Wood Photography & Sienna Wall

So this afternoon me and Sian escaped to the woods as the weather was fantastic, and as we’re walking along she politely tells me to be quiet as she could hear a wooshy windy noise.  The sound she could hear was infact the noise that occurs when lots and lots of little legs hit the soft earth and that was when we noticed the ant hill with many ants flowing over it.  Words cannot describe what a fantastic sight this was, something straight out of a documentary on the Amazon.

So I got in there with the camera and did my best to capture the moment, by the end of it I was absolutely crawling with ants.

Returning from our trip to the woods we decided to stop in and see Sian’s niece Sienna, and since I had my camera with me I figured I’d try and get some shots.  I’ve always heard that photographing Babies and Animals can be a little tricky but I found it was easy to work with Sienna, she was a natural and seemed to play up for the camera.

Anyway enough of my waffling on here are the fruits of my labour.

  1. Me being the geek that I am, I had to identify the ants that we stumbled across today.

    They are known as Formica Rufa and are the largest species in the British Isle’s and very aggressive and territorial
