Spring is Here!……………

It seems like an age since I was here posting pics, but then with the dismal weather that we’ve had for the last couple of months I have suffered from a lack of inspiration to be honest, the light has failed us on most of the occasions when I’ve had the time and only the recent purchase of a new camera has fired me up again!………

However as the following will hopefully show, spring is most certainly with us even if we haven’t seen the last of the snow!……..

Snow Drops are often the first subjects of a new year (assuming I haven’t been able to get out and take snow-covered fields and frost covered trees!…..)

However It’s not all about Snow Drops!…….;)

All of our local birds are showing fantastic colours now, just about at their best and showing off!…..;)

Long Tailed Tit……….

Nuthatch……….

Siskin……….

Blue Tit……….

……………and as it’s now time to pack that camera and take off out again, I’ll wish you a good week and thank you for taking the time to get this far!…..;)

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 Morning in Shropshire

Unless I’m at work it is rare for me to be up and about early enough to capture misty mornings, In fact most of my misty shots are taken in snatched moments on my way to work……. On this occasion though we were both out there and taking our time soaking up that view and those damp cobwebs!………………:)

Have yourself a good week!…………;)

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

Dudmaston Hall Snowdrop Walk 2 – 2012

Having visited Dudmaston last week and seeing the Snowdrops promising a good show, we decided to visit again this week………

The improving weather had brought them on and were just about showing at their best!……

However, last week we’d spoken to another local photographer and she’d metioned the stream below the old mill pond so a slight diversion was in order!…. Chrissy was off through the weeds and the brambles!….. Well worth the effort as it turned out though, because in small clearing by the stream was a carpet of the best Snowdrops we’d ever seen!…….:)

(any of these pics are worth a click to see full size……)

I can’t imagine I’ll better these pics this year, so I reckon that’s the Snowdrops for another 12 months!…… Blue Bells next?……

Happy Monday!……:-)

Dudmaston Hall Snowdrop Walk

As we generally do at this time of year we went to Dudmaston for the first of their Snowdrop walks…… To be honest it was more of a walk than a photography session, but due to recent weather we haven’t been out for a while and it was good (but very cold) to be out in the sun again!…….
Also due to the weather the poor Snowdrops have been real confused, the mild conditions of early winter has seen them pop up sooner than they normally would but freezing conditions of late have done them no good at all!………..:((

Tree Creeper at Severn Valley Country Park

Baby Wren at Severn Valley Country Park, little fella was just sitting on the path waiting for his Mom!…..:)

Common Blue Damselfly at Dudmaston Woods……..

Great Spotted Woodpecker on Wenlock Edge, didn’t like the noise of the shutter, but wasn’t quite quick enough to get out of the frame!…..:)

….he soon came back though, all those nuts can’t be ignored!…..:))

Damselflies at Attingham Park, “‘Aint love grand”……:)

Rose at Attingham Park, (Chrissy spotted this one!…)
