… to our e-home. We’re delighted that you found us.

Our main interests combine photography with the natural world and travel, together with an unreasonable amount of eating and drinking thrown in along the way. Our website is largely a photographic record of those interests, hence you’ll find sections on Wildlife, Travel and Food in the menu. [Food in the menu? Now there’s a thing. 🙂 ]

Wildlife got complicated. After half a lifetime chasing butterflies on a casual basis, in 2009, Odonata [dragonflies and damselflies] became a major interest in my life. Interest swiftly grew into an obsession. Since then, Carol has also caught the bug [pun intended] and our photographic catalogue and information grew such that our Odos merited a website all of their own, www.odonata.org.uk.

To get the most out of travelling the world, I believe it’s essential for one’s taste buds to get involved, too. Not for us, the sadness of seeking English beer or English food abroad – give us the local stuff. Our food section is a personal notebook of recipes we’ve enjoyed eating. Since it’s also implemented using WordPress, I affectionately call it “Gastroblog“.

    Just to say “thanks” for the pheasant recipe (Faisan a la Normande). I’ve been looking for one like it for a while and yours seems really well thought through and presented. It makes me eager to try some of your others.

    Hi John,

    I am familiar with your name as you have kindly taken the time to agree, revise and comment on various of my iSpot Observations. I have only just managed to stumble over your website, which I find excellent.

    We (my wife is also called Carol) have a holiday home in S. France, in the foothills of the Pyrenees not far from Perpignan. We spend around half the year there in 5-6 week chunks. The eating and drinking is as important (probably more so) than the weather.

    My interest in odonata only started a year or so ago, and, like you, it has become a near obsession.

    Keep up the good work on your website, which I shall visit often.
