Weekly Photo Challenge: Dialogue – Two Welsh Dragons
This week we were asked to foster a dialogue between two images. I took these photos at Powis Castle in Wales. The emblem of Wales is a Red Dragon. My first image is a red dragonfly and it adds the missing colour from the statue of the Welsh Dragon in the second image. A simple dialogue perhaps, but I hope that it’s effective!
Blue Monday: Busy Blue Tits
Our visit to Shropshire over the August Bank Holiday Weekend brought with it the joy of birdwatching in Simon’s mum’s garden! The Blue Tits are the most numerous of the feathered garden visitors and they’re a joy to watch. Tiny birds with big personalities :-)
Travel Theme: Orange
A smorgasbord of oranges from our travels to Shropshire and Wales last weekend! Hope you enjoy the gallery below :-)

Blue Monday: Blue Butterfly
I love finding these pretty blue butterflies out among the wildflowers and grasses. They can be incredibly hard to spot, despite that amazing flash of blue, as this precious little creature is only about 1cm tall with its’ wings closed!
