Aglow in afternoon light
Here I take my rest
#FeelGoodPhotoOfTheDay – Heavenly Heather
So in a difficult time for many people, around the world, I thought I would try to share more of my images that are simply about something beautiful. I hope everyone will find some peace and pleasure in these images. We all need to take good care of our mental wellbeing as well as keeping ourselves as safe as possible throughout the coronavirus outbreak.
For at-risk groups this is a very difficult time indeed as we are being asked to stay at home, in isolation, for up to 12 weeks. If, like me, you are in this category please do try to find remote places you can get to by car for exercise and fresh air. This is really important for your mental wellbeing! I will be going to a few nature reserves and parks where I know I can distance myself from other people. Ask family, friends or neighbours if they can pick up shopping or prescriptions for you. If you live with someone who is at-risk, you are advised to self-isolate as far as possible to help protect those you live with.
If you are NOT in the at-risk category, could you perhaps offer some support to anyone local to you who is?
Take care of yourselves and those around you! We will get through this x
ShareMondays2020: Orchid Delight
I finally managed to get some camera and nature time last Friday with a visit to RHS Wisley Gardens. I had a delightful time having tea with the birds outside the Glasshouse cafe before heading into the Glasshouse itself to play with the orchids! On a very grey, damp and windy Monday, I thought you all might enjoy a bit of joyful colour.
ShareMondays2019 – What’s The Difference Between A Weasel And A Stoat?
A weasel is weaselly recognised but a stoat is stoatally different! Boom Boom!
Sorry, but I couldn’t resist a bad Christmas cracker joke. This is the first WILD weasel I have ever managed to catch on camera! What a way to celebrate the festive season. I know it’s a weasel, not for the aforementioned reason, but because it’s REALLY small and the tail is only about 3cm long, with no black bushy tip! I only actually caught very brief glimpses of the tail as they’re also REALLY, REALLY fast. My photos with the full body and tail are unintentionally motion blurred!
Anyway, wishing everyone a fun and joyful festive season, whatever and however you might celebrate! Here are the festive feathered friends that I went to photograph, who actually alerted me to the presence of the Wisley Weasel. A redwing in a cherry tree and rockin’ robin!
