Lovely shot of a honeybee flying towards beautiful "Lady Phacelia" aka purple tansy- great autumn forage for bees. *Notice the huge amount of dark purple pollen balled into the pollen baskets (corbiculae) on her back legs! ~Pic by Dermot Rothwell. #carlowbeekeepers #beekeeping #beekeeper #bees #honeybees #pollinators #irishblackhoneybees #nativeirishhoneybee #carlowtown #carlowbees #honeycomb #rawhoney #realhoney #beephotography #environmentallyfriendly #earthcare #busybees #pollinators #irishwildlife #biodiversity #hiveactivity #gardeningforbees #flowersforbees #forageforbees #beefriendly

I spent my day in the phoenix park trying to get some pictures of the rut. Fallow deer have been present in Phoenix Park since the seventeenth century when they were hunted for sport by the gentry of the day. The present-day herd is descended from those deer who were chased for enjoyment and hunted for food. They are wild animals, and their relationship with man has sometimes been a stormy one, like when calls were made to remove the animals to a special enclosure so twentieth-century motorists could drive through the park on the way to somewhere else without having deer wandering the roads and precipitating accidents. #photography #dubiln #phoenixpark #wildlifephotography #rawireland #fallowdeer #irishwildlife

Red stag in Killarney Ireland. Being here during the rut is amazing. This monster stag was calling out challenging other males and rounding up his harrem. I could hear him over 2KM away. It was an erie sound my first day walking in the empty rainy forest. ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ #nikon #reddeer #killarneynationalpark #stag #withmytamron #tamron150600g2 #tamronlens #wildlifephotography @best_of_ireland #ireland #irishwildlife #nikonwildlife #shooteveryday #dailyinsta #instadaily @tamronusa #cervus #deer #nationalparks #chasinggirls

Rutting season is upon us & look at this fine animal! Looking for a place to stay that is close to the National Park and equipped to let up to ten people per night! Than look no further than Killarney’s Holiday Village! ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #Repost @no_wrongways with @get_repost ・・・ The Killarney red deer, the last herd anywhere in Ireland or the U.K. There is some dispute if the deer are the last native deer of Ireland or if they were brought here from South Africa. Either way right now the deer are in rut, and the big Stags are chasing doe. The wildlife in Ireland is really beautiful and everywhere. I’m really hoping to get to see some foxes before we leave next month and do some hiking in the National Park. ^ ^ ^ ^ #nikon #reddeer #killarneynationalpark #stag #withmytamron #tamron150600g2 #tamronlens #wildlifephotography @best_of_ireland #ireland #irishwildlife #nikonwildlife #shooteveryday #dailyinsta #instadaily @tamronusa #cervus #deer #nationalparks #irelandtravel #irelandcountryside #kerrycounty #countykerry #ringofkerry #travelblog #wildlifephotographer

Young Buck. Well actually, young stag. This Red deer was all on his own half hearted in his atempts at chasing the females. With a much smaller rack and much less body mass I don't fancy his chances for this mating season, or in the brutal fights. He was isolated and alone bellowing and bleating to no effect. ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ #nikon #reddeer #killarneynationalpark #stag #withmytamron #tamron150600g2 #tamronlens #wildlifephotography @best_of_ireland #ireland #irishwildlife #nikonwildlife #shooteveryday #dailyinsta #instadaily @tamronusa #cervus #deer #nationalparks #chasinggirls

Swarming bees in flight!! One of our Carlow beekeepers Dermot Rothwell caught this really cool footage at his house 🐝🐝🐝 *When honeybees swarm it may look scary, but they're actually very calm and unlikely to sting due to the queen's 'mandibular' pheremone. #carlowbeekeepers #beekeeping #beekeeper #bees #honeybees #pollinators #carlowbees #beefootage #uniquevideo #environmentallyfriendly #earthcare #busybees #pollinators #irishwildlife #biodiversity #swarminghoneybees #swarmingbees #beeswarm #beefriendly #carlow

Apis mellifera mellifera (Native Irish Dark Bee). This honey bee subspecies is native to Ireland yet its populations are dwindling across Europe. Conservation work of this ecotype has agricultural significance since it expresses unique adaptations which improve its ability to live in mild wet climates like those in Ireland and the UK. Recent studies suggest that there are enough colonies across Ireland to gradually repopulate Europe with this subspecies. Hybridisation with other subspecies is just one threat to the subspecies and leads to the dilution and ultimately loss of their genetic diversity. There is an increase in aggression exhibited by hybrids compared to pure breeds which is comparable to hybrids of the European and African honey bees who are far more aggressive than either of their parent species. #apis #apismellifera #apismelliferamellifera #bees #bee #hymenoptera #eusocial #eusociality #pollinatorgarden #pollinators #pollinator #conservation #geneticdiversity #subspecies #hybrid #hybridisation #irish #irishnature #irishwildlife #europeanwildlife #nature #naturephotography #naturelovers #adventuresinzoology #zoology #entomology

Crab spider (Misumena vatia) blending in perfectly on an Iris in the summer sun. We have one native Iris species here in Ireland (Yellow Iris, Iris pseudacorus) and many introduced cultivars such as the one photographed here. These are great plants to watch for a while on a calm sunny day as they support a host of invertebrate species. The flowers are commonly visited by Bumblebees who temporarily wedge themselves between the petals to gain access to nectar, emerging covered in golden pollen. If that hasnt got you interested in this beautiful plant how about this then .... Iris roots and flowers are also used to flavour gins such as Bombay Sapphire. #iris #crabspider #irishwildlife #bombaysapphire #gin

A Cross Orb-Weaver/European Garden Spider hanging out. The wind blew a seed into the web so, feeling the vibes, she wandered down to check it out. Realizing the false alarm, she plucked out the culprit and tossed it dismissively to the ground below before returning to her central base and carefully repositioning her legs onto the silk strands. It is believed that orb-weavers have existed mostly unchanged since the Jurassic period and were a major influence in the evolution of flying insects - their prey. . . . #spideysquad #orbweaverspider #irishwildlife

With our new shop comes lots of lovely new things. We’ve just added this wonderful encyclopedia of interesting facts about known and not so well known Irish animals... For example, did you know we had lizards in Ireland?? Dr.Hibernica Finch’s Compelling Compendium of Irish Animals makes learning very entertaining indeed, and we love the illustrations 👍 Available only in store at the moment! (Renovations for our second floor are still ongoing, but it’s business as usual for our ground floor!) #learningmadefun #irishanimals #irishwildlife #independentshop #newshop #irishdesign #irishbooks #kidsbooks #irishkids #irishcraft #compellingcompendium
