… on one of my daily walks for exercise. I love the colour.
A very relaxed-looking frog in the garden today.
Its two friends disappeared while I went to look for my phone. But they’re there somewhere, under the surface…
Coal tits are regular visitors to the garden. Here’s one with plenty to say for itself!
There’s been a lot of rain this week. Quite a lot of it fell on my day off, when I went for a walk by a river. I snatched some photos on my phone…
The roads were wet and the river was full. Brown, muddy water, moving much too quickly for my liking.
Bowed and broken branches.
Spring is not here yet. Not here. Not quite.
Life goes on.
Subtly shaded fungus.
Growing on a log from a felled tree.
I ventured out yesterday into the Peak District. It rained. And rained. So much so that I couldn’t risk using my camera. I took a few sneaky shots with my phone though!
There was a lot of small-bird activity in the garden yesterday. Here are two of the pictures I managed to take (through the window, I’m afraid, so not as sharp as I would have liked).
Two pairs of mandarin ducks out for a late-afternoon paddle. The males seem to be guarding (hiding?) the females.
A closer look …
(They were careful to hide behind some branches!)
Late afternoon in the Peak District.
