Watching and waiting

Not much in the way of pictures at the moment. It's all watching, and waiting.........bit like life.

Common Blue, Little Egret, and a big flying thing. No idea what it was, but it was huge!!

Doctors later.....hospital much later.....November......and in the meantime I shall endeavour to catch up with everyone.

Enjoy the week

  2. Those are all lovely photos, but I especially love the butterfly! That is a gorgeous shot!

    Perhaps it was a cicada?

  17. I find the first photo perfect and very thought-provoking, Keith. Some time ago I was thinking hard about depth of field in photography and realized in how many ways you can see the depth in a scene...
