When I'm out and about taking photographs of all things wild I've always got an eye out for something that's a little different... you could call it 'arty'. Things like a brightly coloured building or a certain way that a shadow falls or as in this selection of images...reflections!

All these images were taken this year, from various locations, were I've been in the fortunate position of being in 'the right place at the right time'.

I've used Photoshop© on all the images to enhance and saturate the colours.


Wherever you are and whatever you're doing this weekend...have a good one...[;o)

Yesterday I had the good fortune to be invited by Keith and Mark to go along with them to see some fledgling Kestrels.  And what  a pleasure it was to get stunning close up views of these beautiful young birds, a thoroughly enjoyable and captivating couple of hours.

If you already haven't, you can get the full story on either Keith's or Mark's blogs (links above).

"oi! watch what you'e doing"

And finally a big and special thanks to Mark for sharing his 'find' with us. Thanks Mark.

.....nonstop for the whole bl...y day!!

I took a few photographs of the poor soaking wet birds that have been visiting my garden feeders.

Not very good photographs, I hasten to add, as double glazed windows, the rain and the resulting bad light all add up to high ISO settings and therefore very grainy photographs. 

Still, I guess, it was something to keep me occupied while I was sitting...watching...the rain...raining...all day!!

And life must go on whatever the weather... a just fledged House Sparrow gets a feed.

And it's still raining!!
