Taisy’s Guide to Wildlife
at Maison Jaune
Black and White are the in colours for these Ladybirds and this pretty moth
We found loads of these colourful bugs all over the passion flower.
I snapped these dew covered webs during an early morning fishing trip
This stripy yellow spider was very pretty but quite scary too!
Fast Little Lizards
Caterpillar or Snake?
This is the huge caterpillar of the Elephant Hawk Moth!
I found this one down by the lake.
One day it will turn into this pretty moth
Frogs – Big and Small . .. .
I love them all!
|First catch of the year! A nice little roach.|
|Last catch of the year! Mum’s beautiful carp|
All with a little help from Tobi,
the resident fishing expert
We also saw . . .
(But weren’t quick enough to take photos ourselves)
A young deer seen leaping across the field
|A colourful kingfisher seen darting across the lake to its nest|
|A hedgehog, found snuffling around under the passionflower at night|
|A grey heron seen dropping in to look for a tasty meal.|
|A wetland coypu seen running across the field and again fishing in the lake|
|A common buzzard often seen and heard in the skies over the lake|
We’ll be back next year to see what else we can find!
