Not half bad

It’s a fair day today. The featured pic was taken this morning when I put my rubbish out at the gate – snapping a selection to choose from for my now regular Monday morning Blip, the Monday Outlook. Today I was inspired by my sister-in-law to get out my polarising filter and make some use of it.


There was actually a Skylark singing overhead when I took this and I later saw a pair of Oystercatchers on the wing. Spring is definitely going to get here this year. Maybe not yet, but sooner or later.

Dusty had indeed brought some prey in and when he saw his dad, he let goContinue readingDecember Reflections 4: Red
