New images on Nature Photographers Photolibrary May 2014

May proved to be yet another productive month for new imagery at Nature Photographers Ltd, a really diverse range of pictures being received.

With the spring well underway (and a warm one at that) migrant birds such as Cuckoo, Nightjar and Pied Flycatcher began appearing in numbers. With the males actively seeking a female mate, or both adults already busy collecting food to feed early broods, plenty of opportunities to photograph these birds presented themselves.

With the growing season at its height, plenty of spring flowers were making the most of the ideal conditions. Pictures received ranged from the majesty of the Bluebell woods in Hampshire to the humble Daisy growing in profusion on an urban lawn.

With many of our invertebrate species reaching adulthood, a number of new images are available. These range from our ever growing collection of British spiders courtesy of Evan Jones, to more bees, wasps and hoverflies from Roger Tidman. We continue to work on our collection of butterflies and moths and new field shots and cutout images were added too.

The British landscape collection continues to grow as NPL library Manager Rob Read works through his large archive of images adding some stunning River Thames photographs.
