Welcome to Watching Nature.


The main thrust of this site is Digital Photography using Nature as a canvas.

 The Blog describes our expeditions on a Sunday to photograph nature in action at venues all over Scotland, weather permitting.

Click on Photographs for a full index of every photograph on the site along with thumbnail pages by category which may help you to identify something you have come across.

Nesting Birds
In taking pictures of nesting birds, great care is taken to avoid disturbing the birds. A long lens is used at a concealed position some distance from the nest.

On the wild flower pages, we have reproduced some folklore on the history of medicinal properties associated with the flower.

Watching Nature can not take any responsibility for any adverse effects from the use of plants. Always seek advice from a professional before using a plant medicinally.

All  photographs on this site are conditional copyright free, but the site uses other conditional copyright photographs and sound files  to enhance the information  section, so please check out the copyright link on these pages  for details of what is allowed and what is not.

The Galleries are dedicated to Digital Photography and show the best photographs taken of a particular species.

Map Issue

The maps used on this site are there to give a rough guide to where the photograph was taken in case you want to make a visit.  There is an issue with Google maps at the moment  which means some places will not have a map reference which we'll endeavour to fix as soon a s we can
