Musk Thistle, West Hill – Corfe Castle

A few highlights from rambling around the chalk and limestone downs of the Isle of Purbeck with Jake. A large camera, long lens and a Border Collie bouncing around on the end of a lead has never been a good idea. The majority of the photo’s were taken with the trusty, pocket-sized Panasonic LX5.

Found wandering along the footpath leading down to Winspit Quarry. At night the larvae emits a faint blue-green, bioluminescent glow from the tips of the abdomenial segments.  A surprisingly quick mover especially as it feeds almost exclusively on snails.
