  1. I took some photos of those red beetles last year when in France I wondered what they were :) x

  2. Great photos, love the raindrops ready to fall, I guess that was taken using your extra lens. I did manage a walk this afternoon, and took a few shots of the over flowing river, I should have put my wellies on, I had only intended to walk along the route Forestier but wandered off the path and had very wet feet when I arrived back home. Hoping for better weather next week.

    1. Yes Barbara all photos taken today were with the telephoto lens. The weather is not improving in a hurry! Keep warm Diane.
