Here is a collection of pictures of interesting things that are not insects or spiders.
Above:New photographs of the Northern Lights (Aurora borealis) that I took from my village in January 2005. It is quite unusual to see this from where I live in England so I was extremely excited to see it. I have only seen it once before.
Take a look at this page for more information: http://www.alaskascience.com/aurora.htm
Above: a collared dove.
Above: a female chaffinch.
Above: a male chaffinch hovering and a great tit.
Above: a jackdaw nesting in my neighbour's chimney.
Above: a dunnock having a wash.
My Bolivian rainbow chillies. They start a vivid purple colour then as they ripen they go yellow, then orange and finally bright red! They are also quite hot.
Above: A common toad (Bufo bufo) photographed late at night at Chamber's Farm Wood not far from where I live.
Above: Limax maximus, the leopard slug.
Above: Mallard ducks chasing each other.
Above: a lizard in France.
Above: a sperm whale (Physeter macrocephalus) that washed up on Skegness beach. Photographed before sunrise so as to avoid the crowds it attracted.
Below: me standing next to the giant.
Above: a tortoise living wild in Florida.
Above: A horseshoe crab. These are more closely related to spiders than crabs.
Below: It turned out to be two horseshoe crabs mating!
Above: the underside of a starfish.
Above: Partial eclipse of the sun in England. My garden during and after the eclipse.
Above: common frogs, in my pond.
Above: a hedgehog. It is unusual to see them out during the day and we suspect this hedgehog was blind. It was otherwise healthy.
Above: a grass snake! In my pond! Grass snakes (Natrix natrix) are often found in or near ponds, perhaps feeding on frogs.
Above: a grass snake that lives on my compost heap.
Above: a grass snake basking in sunlight, photographed in woods near my house.
Above: a relative of the grass snake, the viperine (Natrix maura). Like the grass snake they are often found in water. This one was scavenging a dead fish.
Above: a lizard photographed in Ibiza.
Above: Nice rainbows. As seen from my back garden. Notice how the sky is darker above the rainbow than below it.
Not Spiders, videos!
Above: a hungy vole.
Above: one of the grass snakes that live in my garden.
Above: wasps nesting in a lawn-mower.
Above: The mating flight of ants in my garden. Hungry dragonflies, swallows and gulls feast on the hapless flying insects.
