The topic of the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge is Reflections and I had a look through my archives for some suitable pictures. While finding these pictures I was reminded how much I love Cors Caron, and that I’m looking forward to going for a visit when damselfly and dragonfly season gets started. So here are someContinue reading “Reflections”
This week’s Lens-Artists Challenge is a treasure hunt. I’ve been enjoying a dig through my archives to try and find shots for all the items, some more recent than others. Sunrise or sunset This photo was taken one morning a couple of weeks back, on my phone, while preparing lunches in the kitchen. The skyContinue reading “Treasure Hunt”
I was just thinking about the topic for this week’s Lens Artists Photo Challenge: Special Spot Shots. My mind went directly to Cors Caron as this is one of my favourite places, one of my most special places. I then thought of the spot where I always see the Green Hairstreak butterflies that I mentionedContinue reading “Green Hairstreak”
After my post yesterday about the most popular posts on my blog, I was asked what my own favourite photos of the year would be. So I’ve been having a think and these are the photos I liked best this year… First I’ve chosen this Snowdrop from the beginning of the year. I always tryContinue reading “My Favourites”

On a warmer day in the summer, my favourite place at home would probablyContinue reading “Special Places”
I visited Cors Caron again with my daughter the weekend before last, and I spent much of our walk attempting to photograph a heron. I would try and get close enough for a good shot, and it would fly off, only to reappear elsewhere, so I would start my approach again. Here’s the story ofContinue reading “Chasing Herons”
No perfect mirror images, but there were lots of reflections of sky, trees, plants and a passing swan at Cors Caron last weekend. Inspired by the Weekly Photo Challenge: Mirror.
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.
It has been a little too warm for me lately. I am not very good with heat. These guys, however, were delighted. Meet Mr and Mrs Lizard, enjoying a spot of sunbathing at Cors Caron Nature Reserve a week or 2 back.
