Yesterday a new volunteer researcher arrived from the USA, Davie Rolnick is here studying Moths. In the evening I took him on a night walk around part of the trail round the lagoons. Part of the trail path was covered in a swarm of large Froglets with varied tail lengths, seeing this was rather cool. As we continued we kept on finding other cool things, the highlights for me was having a tree frog on my thumb in a rather cute position. And finally after 6 years of being interested in Dragonflies we came across a couple of emerging Dragonflies so I was very happy.

Its been an amazing but busy 2 weeks. Firstly I’ve been able to see and photograph some amazing cool Insects etc and I would say I have taken some of my best photos too date which are worthy of being entered into serious Photography Competition. Nicholas is loving my photos and is always telling people and asking me too show my photos, he says (rather jealously) I have an amazing talent and passion for my photography. I’m not letting it go to my head (hehe) although I do know I am ;).
There have been some really lovely guests staying here for the USA and the UK. They have teached me as well as me teaching them about things. While they were waiting for a presentation I showed them a selection of my best photos taken at Regua, they all appreciated it and loved the photos and Nicholas was thrilled. I decided to make a nice photo album using a selection of my best shots, Showcasing the wildlife diversity here at Regua. Also explaining a bit about myself and advertising as I hope to raise some money for Regua through my photography. Both Nicholas and Raquel love it and so far the guests have been raving about. A selection of my photos are being used for talks to schools communities and I’m making a photo video slide show for an Arts festival which Regua has be asked to be involved in too showcase the wildlife There are also blogs been written not by me) showcasing my findings and photos
