Bird #6

Bird #6Another Robin, I find them hard to resist taking photos of – they’re such willing subjects!

Bird #5

Bird #5A Dunnock – I’ve just done some reading up about this little bird (in my trusty Birds Britannica) and it is also known as a Hedge Spadger, which is such a great name!

Also is said to have a private life that is ‘perhaps the most complex known in British birds’ – basically lots of swapping and sharing!

Water and Ice

Water and IceSome foliage we placed in a puddle, knowing a frosty night was on the way (as you do) – nearly sacrificing wellies a number of times until we found a suitable place that wasn’t surrounded by thick,squelchy mud, the ground is so saturated!Water and Ice

Grass, sunshine and water droplets

Grass, sunlight and water droplets.The title says it all really – photos from an early morning walk. I didn’t set out to photograph grass but…. my preoccupation with water droplets (I love the reflections) got the better of me and a camera full of grasses was the result despite the lack of a tripod (I do have one but… it doesn’t get out very often) and a pair of dogs rampaging through the undergrowth.Grass, sunlight and water droplets.Grass, sunlight and water droplets.Grass, sunlight and water droplets.Grass, sunlight and water droplets.Grass, sunlight and water droplets.Grass, sunlight and water droplets.
