The early morning flying ducks make another appearance. Actually they were geese, you’ll have to take my word for that.
A hoverfly. This one’s for Bob; because he likes hoverflies.
A Common Blue butterfly. These have been very ‘common’ round here, this year.
I’ve noticed a lot of mushrooms growing when I’ve been out. Another sign of autumn? Or just all this rain we’ve had recently?
A fly. Someone must like them. Lovely coloured eyes.
And a young Swallow. There have been a lot of these flying round my local recently. This one is taking a brief rest from flying practice, as he looks like he’s contemplating the long journey ahead of him in just a few days. An incredible journey, when you think him and the rest of his family will be travelling over 3,000 miles; battling against all the hazards on the journey……..weather…..predators…..looking for food, and then hopefully coming back again next year. And all by a small bird, weighing no more than a dragonflies fart.
Pretty incredible when you stop to think about it. Good luck to him, and all the birds, that are soon to begin their great migration journeys.
And have a great weekend, and safe journey too, if you are travelling.
