Another day in the Spring Sun

When I woke it was cloudy but soon enough the sun came out so I headed out.

I went to the RSPB's Fowlmere reserve. No idea why since I seldom see lots of birds there, I ought to try in Summer to see how it does for Dragons. Still it was a lovely walk and I saw some nice birds, Chiffchaff, Snipe, Little Grebe, Teal and Siskin. Oh and some Brown Trout.

I then headed to Audley End Mansion.

A Comma, the first photo of a flutter this year.

The sun was gorgeous and I sat in the garden and read some of my book. Lovely!

As I drove home a Buzzard got harassed by a corvid.

cheers paul.

i do like B&W so expect a few to appear from time to time. it works well for landscapes and buildings.

Aw - those LTTs are lovely as are the pics. And the in-flight Mallard is really good.

The B&W worked much better today - really like the last two pictures (of the buildings) and the penultimate one works really well :)

Pete said...

t - I was chuffed with the mallard. never thought it would be in focus!!

I think I learned from yesterday. the reworking of the pics helped yesterday

The pictures are wonderful once again Pete. Great shot of the mallard. And the flowers, I'm swooning here, lol.

The mallard picture is stunning!

Is the malard pic original or processed? Don't get me wrong i still like it.
The LTT's are delightful pictures.

Pete said...

hey st. its cropped and i think i've played with the brightness and contrast. to be honest I never do much to photos.

The long tail tits are amazing. So cute and tiny. The flying mallard is awesome as well- looks like it is smiling!

I like both the colour and the black and white versions of the photos.

Great Mallard flight shot, and where do you get the glue to stick those Long-tailed Tits down?!!
