We acquired a Bromeliad last week, and I was trying to photograph it from different angles. This one came out rather unintentionally magical, with some bokeh from the window behind it 🙂
When we first walked past the Red Panda enclosure at the zoo, we could only see a tiny glimpse of one of the animals, but we were patient and returned a little later. To our delight this cute creature decided it would let us see it and take some photos, while it had a leafyContinue reading “Red Panda”
There were some very large Sulcata Tortoises at Folly Farm, and one of them seemed to be particularly hungry. I was fascinated by the way he opened his mouth so wide to get as much grass as possible!
During last weekend’s trip to the zoo, I took lots of photos of the Meerkats. They were busy digging, or keeping watch, while some cuddled up in a ball. Very cute 🙂
I’m glad we weren’t planning on going to the zoo today! Going last weekend was a good choice. This week we have strong winds and rain, with an amber weather warning, so staying indoors is the best idea.

On Saturday we went round to the pond in the village to do some work for my daughter’s project (The Barley Hollow Project). On the way we stopped by the church wall to see if there were any snowdrops. There were some there as well as a few further down the road. So I hadContinue reading “Snowdrops”
If you look in my Nature Guide, you’ll find there are a number of flowers with Red in their name. Sometimes they look pink to me, but if their name is red, then they count! We have: Red Campion: Red Clover: Red Dead-nettle Redshank With insects, red seems to be more literal and things definitelyContinue reading “Red”
When I was taking photos of frost and droplets on Sunday my daughter spotted a fly. Not sure what it was doing out and about in such cold weather, but it was nice to get my first insect shot of the year.
