Jurby Church and the north west coast yesterday afternoon.  Nikon D7100  18/8/17
A few pictures taken yesterday evening at a special Members & Guests only evening opening.  One of the highlights for me was being able to access the walkway through  the Ring Tailed Lemur enclosure, which has been closed due to visitors persistently feeding the lemurs, despite notices asking them not to as some human foodstuffs are dangerous for the lemurs.  Nikon D7100  18/8/17
 
On a walk out into the Curragh we spotted one of the wild wallabies with two youngsters, although I only manged to photograph one of them.

Some more aerial pictures as the weather has been kind for drone flying and you have to make the most of that here in the isle of Man!!  These were shot yesterday morning flying from close to the old Tynwald site at Killabane, near to St Luke's Church that sits on the ridge between the east and west Baldwin valleys.  A lovely spot but often too breezy for drone flying!   DJI Phantom 4 Pro  13/8/17
