Titchfield is a village in southern Hampshire, by the River Meon. The village has a history stretching back to the 6th century. During the medieval period, the village operated a small port and market. Near to the village are the ruins of Titchfield Abbey, a place with strong associations with Shakespeare, through his patron, the Earl of Southampton. [wiki]

I received an email today telling me that 2 of my images (pictured below) have been shortlisted for the WWT photo competition this year. I’m not quite sure what happens now but they requested the Hi Rez files which is usually a good thing. I’ll update if I get any more news.

Ant, Ladybirds & Aphids

An army of ants attempt to fend off a Ladybird which is after eating the aphids. The ants try to protect the Aphids because they milk them for the nectar they produce.
