White Mill

Took a visit on Saturday the 7th April to try out my latest dome diffuser and vellum paper setup in the field.

Had a very pleasing visit and will be using the setup for a while I think now.  Seems to really work with the added vellum paper.

My favourite subjects of the day were a posing Thick-headed Fly – although I think it should be perhaps called a bearded fly…& and a nomanda bee, and what I think is a type of hover fly, plus a pair of mating yellow coloured dung flys – one of which has a massive dent in its eye.  I hope you like them.
