Mans best friend

Dunno if it was his guitar playing, but  this busker seemed to be doing really well, though I suspect it might have had something to do with his mate:-)

Red Squirrel

On a short holiday in Cumbria, spotted this chap outside my accommodation.

Swan update 4

Over a month since my last visit to see the local Swans.

Still 5 cygnets and they’ve grown loads in a month.

They didn’t pose to well today and the light was poor, I’m getting my excuses in early!

Another bird posing!

Posted the first pic the other day, then I found the 2nd one, took it in Campbeltown last year, what with my swan updates it appears I’m turning into a birdwatcher!

It’ll be trainspotting next!!

Swan update 3

Back to see the Swans and the cygnets today, the cygnets are a lot bigger than on my last visit, but they still look like they are along way from fending for themselves, I know nothing about Swans and their development.

An there are Five cygnets now.

You again!

You again!

Sea Gull and the Heron

Spotted these two whilst walking along the beach at St Andrews, Fife. It would seem Gulls and Herons are not the best of mates, the Gull kept dive bombing the Heron, which didn’t seem much fussed, it just ducked occasionally. Bit far out, even with the 300mm zoom, but you get the idea.

Pigeon

As it says in the title, a pigeon, nothing special but I liked how the wing tips look translucent, if that’s the right word?

Bit of photoshop editing, sharpened up and some colour saturation and here you are, a pigeon.

Swan Update 2

Been a month since my last update on our local Swans and their cygnets.

There are six cygnets now, think there were seven last month.

First time I've seen a Heron at the pond

Visitor

Heard a knock on my living room window, I looked out and this little fella was sitting outside, he seemed a bit stunned, flying head first into a window must have that effect! Anyway his stunned state allowed me to take this photograph with my mobile phone.

There was a happy ending,thinking he was injured, I tried to pick him up , but on seeing my mitt approaching he came to and flew off.

Does this mean I’m a real photographer now, as I went for the photo op before trying to help the injured party?

Swan update

Went back to see the swans I photographed at the end of May, sad news first, on that occasion there were 8 cygnets, now there are 7. But the 7 appear to be doing well, they are a fair bit bigger than last time.

Again they didn’t seem much bothered by me, but a dog came by at one point and I can confirm Swans do not like dogs, much hissing and wing flapping!

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
