Some from earlier in the month

It wouldn’t be spring, without lambs.
.
.
Took these a few days ago. They were very curious about the hairy man walking towards them.
.
.
This one horned stag wasn’t taking any chances with curiosity though. One look sent him scarpering. That’s the kind of effect I usually have lol
.
.
These two Coot chicks tried very hard to be ‘cute’. Did they succeed?
.
.
“Yea……..my mummy loves me!”
.
And Bluebells this time of year are so photogenic.
.


.
And of course, Dandelion seed heads.
.


.
.
And I’ll go out with some singers,
.


.

A Reed Bunting, Reed Warbler, and Sedge Warbler.

.
.
Enjoy the day.

  1. It's so obvious that you love nature, but even more so, it's clear to me that nature loves you. You do such a fine job of capturing it.

  3. What an eloquent way of capturing spring through a camera lens, no words actually necessary, as the images speak for themselves...

  5. Lovely as always, Keith! The Bluebells never seem to flower for very long but they are always something to look forward to and those Coot babies...they really were at the back of the queue when looks were handed out :)

    Such a pleasure to see all those 'singers' and all posing so nicely!

  21. Haha the ginger headed cooties are cool, definately cute but then I'm bias;-). Those dandelions seed heads are photogenic and fun. You should have seen me last night, chucking a handfull in the air and trying to get a shot needless to say I didn't get anything remotely good. Hope no one saw me, what an idiot.
