Pure Joy

Apart from my garden and the village pond, I think the place I most find my joy is at Cors Caron Nature Reserve. It’s so peaceful and beautiful and full of life. There’s a feeling of pure joy just to stroll slowly in the quiet, watching insects and birds, and even lizards.

As you’ll know I usually focus on the small things but last time I was there I remembered to take a slightly wider shot so I could share the beauty of the place with you, not just the beauty of the creatures there. There are a couple of geese in the shot, but it’s more about the landscape 🙂


I can’t just leave it at that though, of course.

How about a lovely Beautiful Demoiselle?


Or a Meadow Pipit taking flight to feed her babies?


And finally a slightly bumbling beetle – the Garden Chafer. There were loads of these guys flying around when I last visited and they didn’t seem to be very good at landing. The seemed to just drop out of the sky and then clamber up the grass to take off again. Not sure what they were looking for!
