iPhone : In case you missed it, we broke some exciting news earlier about the Isle of May, check out the blog for more information:

iPhone : Continuing my quest to pay a lot more attention to the little things growing on my #Shetland croft this strangest of summers - two subtle forget-me-nots, Changing (in a dry spot) and Creeping (in a damp ditch).

Changing Forget-me-nots flowers are tiny - 2mm across at best.

iPhone : Something a little special for #FernFriday - indeed, something both little and special.

Two nationally scarce and enigmatic fern species, Moonwort and Small Adders-tongue, growing side by side on my #Shetland croft presently.

iPhone : Beardie was a legendary mountain hare and it was this individual who ignited my addiction to photographing these amazing animals many years ago.

iPhone : Yep, it’s a shame to be missing out on the puffin season. But the last thing my hard drives could handle was more puffin images 🤣 they are stacked to the rim with over 20k unseen images of these amazing birds #puffins #summer #shetlad

iPhone : Your chance to win a £100 gift hamper from Shetland Soap Company! 🧼 🛁

iPhone : Northern #Gannets, adult with fledgling, all feathered and ready to leave its nest ledge, usually by early August. The black, ‘starry night sky’ plumage is every bit as impressive as the adult, which takes over four years to reach. #shetland #seabirds

iPhone : #Shetland tirriks have suffered huge decline over recent decades - mainly due to Sand Eel shortage- thankfully though, many scattered colonies holding on. Key to this is adapting to alternative prey - this one pictured with a Lump Sucker, the smallest I’d ever seen. #ArcticTern

iPhone : There may be autumnal winds from the north west and it might feel like late September but the beauty of the #Shetland moorland still shows it’s #summer
