I don’t really taken many photos of buildings or doors… they’re a little large and man-made for my usual style! I expanded my thoughts on doors to other openings like gates … and came up with the Gatekeeper Butterfly: And also my lovely Chris Chalk…

I spied a couple of Damselflies in the garden the other day, and of course I took photos. I though they were just the standard Azures or Common Blues but on later inspection I discovered I’d found a new Damsel, so introducing … the Dainty Damselfly ……

Musing on my Muse

my muse is all around me the air, the soil, the sky the warm embrace of mother nature the flash of butterfly wings the shimmer of bug on leaf the breeze through the long grass the buzz of bumbling bees the splash of a tiny frog as flowers open to the sun…

On Saturday once the weather improved we went for a little walk around the village. The village pond was a hive of activity! There were damselflies everywhere, and I got my first dragonfly shot of the year! Yay. I have a fair few shots of this lovely male…

A Lizard among Damsels

At the weekend we went for a walk around Cors Caron. I was on the hunt for Dragonflies, but sadly they kept flying away! However … it was not a disappointing trip because although I didn’t think it was warm enough yet, we spotted a lovely lady lizard!…

I didn't realise we'd got lizards around here. While my garden is full of slow worms, I've never seen a lizard locally.

I mentioned grasshoppers in my last post and there wasn’t just that one that I included in the post … there were loads! It made me laugh seeing them springing around everywhere as I walked through the grass near the village pond. I was trying to identify…

If I had to be specific ...

If I had to pick a single thing as my muse, rather than the whole of nature, I’d probably have to choose dragonflies. I get such a thrill getting shots of them, and spend far too long hanging around the village pond – just 5 more minutes – trying to get…

I’m not sure if it’s just a British thing but we have a little mnemonic for the colours of the rainbow: “Richard of York gave battle in vain”. That’s the phrase that has stuck in my mind since childhood, rather than the “Roy G. Biv” of this challenge. But…

Yesterday it rained pretty much all day long. This morning there is some sunshine amongst the clouds and it’s dry. The garden is jewelled with water droplets and I couldn’t resist going out and getting some lovely droplet photos. It’s mainly the…

When there’s nothing to photograph outside, or the weather is bad, I turn to crochet. In the winter when there are no insects and flowers to look at, it’s nice to make your own pretty things indoors :) This is what I’ve been up to recently – a beautiful…
