Short lunch by walking right round Salina

Post by Hulland » Tue Jun 14, 2011 7:22 pm

Love to know the English for " tut" they were EXTREMELY tasty !

Finally got some decent pics of Il Mazzarrel ( Dragonflies) today too. Managed to spot an " anqbut"...as well as a Spanish Dancer ( Nudibranch) near the surface.

Hope you like the pics.

Ian.

Thanks for sharing - I was impressed by 2 photos.

First of all, the first photo is LEucana Leucocephala - an invasive alien. The maltese word for web is ghanqbut(a) of anqbuta ? - got confused :oops:

The Dragonfly with a purple abdomen is truly interesting - I do not think I have seen a species with that colour!

Finally, what is the species/organism in the last photo - I can't picture it! Well done ta'
