Well, finally we got our computer back after getting a nasty virus. We had to be completely wiped, so had to re-install everything. It's good to be back at last! I just want to thank Evie at www.sunnysideup-eve.blogspot.com for putting that post up on her blog to tell everyone that I was out of action for a while. Thanks Evie!
Below is a photo taken at one of my favourite reserves on the Somerset Levels at Ashcott Corner. I love the different zig-zag lines of colour in this scene.I can't resist fluffy bulrush photos!This Common Buzzard is flying over typical Levels countryside, very flat and peaty.Here he is cropped down.There is a long and strong tradition of 'pollarding' trees for willow withys on the Levels. These are used for fence making and basket making and more recently for decorative sculpture work. They give the countryside around here a unique character that I love.I was driving along near Tealham and Tadham Moor when I saw this Grey Heron by the side of the lane. I had the camera ready, but of course, just the act of my stopping the car cause it to fly off. I love the way one of his toes is sticking up at he flies off. (-:And lastly, I couldn't resist this slightly less than beautiful lamb. He reminds me a little bit of a hyena! Shame! (-:
