I don't know about you, but I've noticed a lot more of these little fellows about recently. Including one that seems to think it's great idea to spin its web across the entrance to my garden! There's nothing to be scared of however, let's just look at the beauty of this great snap...

Monday's magic moment: alien pavement
Continuing a past trend of championing those bits of nature that don't move around much, this shot persuaded me to pick rocks. The visual effect of this weird geology is truly striking, and unlike organic landscape features, they stay that way all year. This rare limestone pavement in...

Monday's magic moment: sea of blue
I don't know how it's been for you, but summer has simply flown by for me this year. And even though I'm well past school age, the fact that kids are now back at school marks, for me at least, the start of the journey into autumn. However, I'm not quite ready to give up on summer,...

Monday's Magic Moment: ruddy beautiful!
Who says that we don't have bright, colourful wildlife in the UK? You won't get much brighter than this male ruddy darter dragonfly , photographed by Steve Knell. Head over to RSPB Images to view other photos and buy beautiful prints.

Tuesday's magic moment... more than mould
I stumbled across some fascinating fungi this weekend so I chose these quintessential toadstools to advocate this often overlooked kingdom. Also known as ‘fly agaric’ these mushrooms are fruiting bodies for a species of fungi that lives in partnership with tree’s roots. In return...
