I have uploaded around 100 more photographs to the site since the one I showed of Dixie Dean. I have been trawling the darkest recesses of my backup discs and CDs to find any remaining species. Tonight, I hit a bit of a jackpot when I found a folder that I thought I had lost in some past computer disaster. It contains all my output for 1999 and has lots of the more common species that I have not bothered photographing since then. The Dixie Dean theme continues, as it has photographs from a visit to the New Forest that James McGill and I made, along with Dixie, to see such gems as Scarce Merveille du Jour and Festoon. We didn't get home from there until dawn and when I crawled out of the car, Dixie still had another hour to drive to reach his bed. Not bad for a bloke in his late seventies who had been up all night.
Scarce Merveille du Jour - worth a sleepless night
