Ok, it’s a long while since I’ve simply themed a page like this, but everything here is red… (even when they don’t look like they are).
The first is a red-eared terrapin. They are feral (discarded domestic animals). The terrapins have survived for a number of years in Falmer Pond as – essentially – they are at the top of the local food chain with no natural predators. There are several, and this one is close to the size of a dinner plate. It’s unlikely that they’ll be able to breed in our climate as the eggs are laid on the ground and need a consistent temperature above 25C for a couple of months.
The next little sequence is another non-native species, but rather less damaging to local wildlife. This one was sharing calls with a mate (who was out of sight). It’s a red-legged partridge.
This one is easy… red sky!
Lastly, the inevitable red fox (to give its proper name). It’s a short sequence of Pretty sharing a markie biscuit with one of the cubs.
Camera note: all daytime photos taken with the Canon 1DX Mark II and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens. The EF 200mm f/2.8L II USM was used for the foxes.
