I've been in a FB walking group for a few months now....it's mainly down to my friend J being a moderator on it and inviting me. Occasionally I've posted a comment, but mainly I've just quietly sat on the sidelines enjoying the photos others have taken and noted anywhere that might be of interest for a future walk. It was J's first group walk she'd organised on Monday and so I joined for a jaunt round our local woods and in doing so met a really friendly group of people. Not much to "see" as such, but good company and every weather from sunshine through to rain and a few flakes of snow.

All the moths we see are stunning, but occasionally one comes along in the trap that is even more special. I think that this Light Emerald ...

I don't know about others, but for me the travelling to and from a holiday destination forms part of the experience and unless it's ...
