In the North of the Greek island of Corfu, staying in the beautiful olive grove / cyprus tree covered hills travel / wildlife photography…
The house and garden we stayed in, was our little slice of heaven. Such peaceful setting, in a tiny renovated village of just a few houses (renovated by an Architect, his wife and friends). Tucked away, up a winding (somewhat dicey) road (with a narrow bend right next to a steep drop) through the olive groves, nestled in the hills with fabulous views down the valley out to sea and across to Albania.
This little scorpion was in found in my bedroom on the first night! I photographed it in a glass before putting it outside (luckily I didn’t come across anymore during my stay)
This photo probably isn’t what you’d first expect. It was actually the wasp that had killed the spider! The wasp was dragging it vertically up the wall!
I saw this twice while I was there – which was funny as some of the staff had never seen happen before!
These wasps lay their eggs inside the dead spiders, when the eggs hatch the baby wasps eat their way out!
Ah, this sweet little wild cat, mum to the black kitten below – my heart broke when I had to leave them to come back to London!
This adorable kitten was being brought up by it’s wild-but-tame mum in the bush in the garden of where we were staying – I couldn’t help but fall in love with it!
The olive trees just beginning to fruit.
