Butterflies & Bees Etc………..

While Flickr is behaving I’m making the most of it!……. most unlike me to post two days running, but I have a little time and I can actually post pictures too!…..:)

Yesterday was one of the few days this year where we didn’t need three layers of clothing, we decided that Pound Wood could be worth a visit as we haven’t been for a while and there is often a wealth of wildlife…………..

The Bees were real busy!….. they have struggled this year with the cold hanging on for so long, It is good to see them around!….:)

The Orange Tips are back as well, these really are manic, you just have to wait for one to settle near you to be able to take a pic, I’m sure they enjoy leading you around if you chase them!…..:)

Then our old friend the Pearl Bordered Fritillary showed up, most obliging too, seemed quite happy to pose for a minute or two!…. really liked that dandelion!…..;)

This is a pic from a  while back now, the Nuthatch!……. at Severn Valley Country Park we’ve found a couple of places where these will be happy to land quite close if you bribe them with a few suet pellets!…. they are quite vocal though!……….hehehe

The last of the snow!……….. YAY!….

……….and the first signs of spring!…. late it might be, but very welcome all the same!………

 

Have a great weekend!………………;)

Bridgnorth Rugby Club Fireworks

Last night saw the fireworks at Bridgnorth Rugby Club which has become an annual ‘not to be missed’ event!….. The weather held out as well after raining late in the day we really did think we were going to be washed out of another photo opportunity!……:)

A new band this year….. Midset Buka!…… playing cool covers for a few hours, can’t be easy playing strings in those temperatures!…….LOL

There were hundreds of people early this year, maybe they remembered the parking fiasco from previous years?……..;)

………and a team stoking the fires!………

Then the main event…. it didn’t disappoint, in fact it was that good it was harder this year to seperate and photograph them!………

It’s Autumn again!……….

It Is deffinately autumn again!…….. we decided today to take a walk down at Dudmaston Woods, We’d been watching the colour of the trees changing for a week or two, but now is the time to take those pics of wonderful colours!…. I have to admit that I am not a fan of autumn, but this is only because it it is the onset of winter!…..:)

Autumn

Swan @ Dudmaston

The Pool @ Dudmaston

Carpet?

Colour!.....

I have to admit now that this is somewhat a test!…… all these images have been linked to my new account at Flicker in an effort to be able to maintain this blog without paying a fortune to upload decent image files, if it works out then I’ll be around a while longer!…….:)

Have yourselves a good weekend, and I guess “HAPPY HALOWEEN”……..:0

P.S. I’ve taken a peek at the preview and I reckon the only difference is that you can’t click to see the full size image, with this page getting about 4 clicks a week I don’t think that’ll be too much of a problem!…….LOL

Misty Sunrise in Bridgnorth

I guess it must be that time of year!….. Misty mornings!……:)

I’ve had a busy couple of weeks and have seen little at home or in the surrounding area other than during driving to work, there have been some spectacular sunrises but I’ve had no time to spend walking around our little town to take snaps………

When Chrissy suggested we get up at half past six on the only day off for over a week I didn’t think it was the best idea she’d ever had!……..;))

However, as the following shows it really was worth the effort even though it was damp, and it was cold too!…….

In no particular order these pics were taken from “The Castle Walk”…. some looking south, some looking east towards the early sun, and some looking north (up river and heavy mist!…) or from on and around the Old Bridge………….


Have a good weekend!……… (I’ll be at work again!……:( … )

Dudmaston Wood, Dragonflies

Taking a walk in Dudmaston Woods yesterday, just ambling around really, snapping at whatever appeared……

We had seen one or two Dragonflies flitting about and came upon a tree full of Migrant Hawkers!…..:)

We both thanked them for posing for us for so long too!…..LOL

A Walk in The Park?……..

Severn Valley Country Park that is, we pop down occasionally now as they don’t offer concessions on the car parking, however today seemed like a good idea to stay close to home, it was cold and it was going to rain, then rain some more…………..

Itching as we were to take a few snaps, there was very little about and the dull grey skies didn’t inspire any landscape shots either so here are todays captures…………..

Chifchaff… (loud aren’t they?…hehehe)

Squirrel…… (did I say it was cold, his paws firmly wedged in pocket!…..)

Mute Swan…. was glad of a long lens, they are nesting right now and don’t like you getting too close!…..;)

Happy weekend!……………

Some Birds are Camera Shy!……….

We only popped out for an hour or so yesterday, The weather was changeable and threatening rain all day so just a walk up the hill behind where we live!…… Chiffchaffs are around but boy are they quick!….:)

By the time you spot ’em then gain a focus they’re gone!…..

Managed just one half decent pic………

Then on the way back for a coffee the local poser was watching us so we had to oblige!……:)

Happy Week everybody!………;))
