Every time I go out, I take piccies. Ever time I take piccies of anything that takes my fancy, I tweet some of my favourites.
Here’re some I’ve done over the past week:
Just grass and rain:
Next two are of the same bird, a gull of some kind. No colour desaturation or anything:
This one is nothing special but I like it, a blackbird on a dead tree
And here’s the first of several heron pics, they’re probably my second favourite bird after Grebes:
(must learn how to stop the white bits being all washed out)
and here he(?) is leaving.
My favourite plants are probably teasels (teazels?) for their all-year-roundness, with waterlillies coming a close second.
Couple of little birds chatting in the treetop:
Here’s the first grebe. They are definitely the things I most frequently photograph. It was what got me interested in both wildlife and photography: seeing a pair doing their mating dance on Godfrey’s pond.
I’m told that this is a Red Admiral, I caught it between Ranby and Osberton on a towpath walk.
On the same walk I recalled that Google were sending their photo-trike along the towpaths of the canal system. they’d be lucky to get along this stretch!
Scofton Church from the canal (‘shopped a bit to remove wires across panorama):
Here’s the original & the ‘shopped versions:
A favourite view of mine: looking through Stables Bridge to Long Bridge at Osberton:
Horses on the field at Manton:
Thistle with spotty fly
This is a juvenile grebe. The “top” pair seem to have become a single parent family.
And here’s a bunny: seen one exactly here several times.
Heron up to its knees in the pond:
Gingerkit on the keyboard:
Now these two were definitely “at it” they even flew joined:
Although this one was OK with just watching:
This lilly seemed to have a candle in its heart. It was really just the way it faced directly into the sun.
A pair of finches making sweet music:
Another butterfly, this time white:
Nothing but a feather hanging in a hedgerow: liked it though:
Train to Kiveton Park back home via towpath. Absolutely lashed it down as I left Turnerwood. Drowned rat!
The top pound looks good in any weather, something to reflect on:
I know! It’s just what catches my eye at the time.
Grass! Just grass!

Everyone’s at it. A pair (yes there’s two) of ducks having it off:
That’s all folks!
