You may have noticed that I am slightly obsessed with dragonflies. Every time I go for a walk round the village pond I’m looking out for them. And what I am always trying to get with my photos is a good focus on their amazing eyes. I creep closer and…

So, yesterday, I spent quite a large amount of time getting ridiculously windswept and covered in sea spray! But it was for a good cause. My daughter asked for a beach ride for her birthday, so I had arranged for her, her friend and her friend’s mum to go…

Regarded by many as a particularly pesky garden weed, Bindweed has a poor reputation. However, just look how beautiful it can be, in the sunshine after the rain!

All the lovely summer wildflowers are appearing around the village, and many of them are very busy places, filled with visitors. I’m feeling a little antsy and impatient tonight so please join me in viewing these soothing and beautiful wild summer…

I absolutely love this shot I got today! The sun was coming and going as clouds kept blocking it out and I was wandering around the village pond looking out for wildlife. I came upon this dragonfly in the tall grass and as I was kneeling to get a low-down…

It seems to be Soldier Beetle season as they are all over the place. I even had one in my car the other day! I shall respect their privacy and avoid photos of them mating, but here are just a few of them wandering about:

Fluffy the Skipper & Friends

Meet Fluffy the Skipper… wouldn’t you just like to give him a cuddle? Skippers are probably the most cuddly-looking butterflies you’re ever likely to meet. The first time I saw one I assumed it was some kind of moth as they’re usually the more fluffy…

Just like me, they long to bee ... close to you

Well, this week’s photo challenge is more my kind of thing :) Close-up is what I do! I could have picked one of gazillions of close-ups from my stash of photos but I thought I’d go out in the garden and see what I could find and take some fresh photos for…

I have pondered for a while whether I have any photos that fit with this week’s photo challenge. Yet again I have to tear myself away from my preferred small world and look a bit further afield. That’s why they call it a challenge I guess! I took this…

The joy of our own pond

I’m so glad we made a pond. Bruce’s back didn’t enjoy it but even he agrees that the pond is worth it. We can sit and watch frogs and newts, and all manner of insects who enjoy being near the water, without even leaving our garden. At the weekend I spent…

Sunday started out rather wet. Later on when the rain stopped and the sun came out, the droplets were calling to me! As it was a still day the droplet just hung there even on the most delicate of plants.
