Met a few people I know and we wandered through the reserve. The birds may have been few but the insects were many. Unfortunately the wind was strong and blustery making taking pictures of insects nigh on impossible.
I then changed to the Macro 90mm prime lens. The wind and lack of tripod made taking these quite a challenge!
And a grasshopper (or cricket?)
So as long as you kept your eyes open and looked very closely into the flowers and grasses, there was a great deal to be seen.
