Some interesting and intriguing photographs 2018

A sunbow, on Dunsinane Hill. 17/5/18
A common lizard (Lacerta Zootoca vivipara - the vivipara means it gives birth to live young not this one though as it is probably a male) sunning itself on the track, right where it would get run over or trodden on. Rescued and put on a less warm patch of sunny grass. It looks as though it has had to re-grow its tail at some time. 8/5/18
A squirrel's drey in Glen Mark. 3/5/18
A male adder (OE nadder), in upper Glen Mark. Waiting for some even more interesting ones from Hanne! 3/5/18
So that those at the back could see an adder for themselves, some didn't realise they were that big! This was only a male, females are bigger. 3/5/18 Pictures of Nick's hand and snake by Hanne.
A fog of water vapour being blown off the evaporating snow on Mildewan Hill. 17/4/18
Mating toads in Glen Moulzie. 12/4/18
Possibly inonotus radiatus. A form of hymenochaetaceae. Rare, inedible, and sporulates in late summer and autumn. Though may be not! Craig Vinean Forest. 5/4/18
Pine marten. 18/1/18
Another pine marten. 18/1/18
A buzzard looking for scraps. 18/1/18
