Some from the last few days

Had a nice morning at the local today, and then on to Woburn.

It costs money to get in there; but not if you walk through the park via the public footpath. And I could see all that I wanted to see; deer and birds. Another post though, I’m still going through the shots.

Today it is some from the past few days.
Some flyers first.

Mute Swan, Cormorant, and the usual view I get of a Heron. I did manage a sideways on shot today though.

And a dragonfly next,

A Brown Hawker. Since they rarely sit still for long, I tried getting him as he flew past.

A couple of Common Blues next,

sharing the same flower.

Couple of geese next,

Greylag, and Canada.

And the last one for now,

a little Wren.

Enjoy the rest of the week.


  1. How very graceful the birds look in flight. Wonderful photography . You really have a beautiful place to go and seek out natures finest. I loved the butterfly also.
    Wonderful blog.

  2. That is the nicest I have seen for a long time, I love all these birds in flight.

  10. Thanks Tricia. It was good fun trying, but very hit and miss; mostly miss lol

    Dominic, thank you for your comment.

    Thank you Wilma. I liked that one myself. :)

  11. Green with envy a dragon fly in flight is something to be proud of.

  12. Hi Keith...your photos of the birds in flight are graceful and have a peaceful effect... very nice!!
    The heads of the geese are comical..mouths full and dirty faces!! ; }
    We have Labor Day weekend holiday this weekend and potential for hurricane Earl to leave some damage in it wake!!
    Good time to stay home away from the crazy rat race....!!

  13. Thanks Adrian. It took a lot of shots to get two that were acceptable lol

    Grammie, I've read about that hurricane, (no tv lol), I hope it doesn't cause too many problems for you. Enjoy your weekend if you can ;)

  14. Every one a beauty again, Keith! The geese made me smile with their full, mucky beaks :) Loved the little Wren too.

    Sorry, Keith I had completely forgotten you don't have a tv so my allusion to a scene from 'Titanic' in an earlier comment probably made no sense to you :)

  15. Thanks Jan. I think geese always seem to have a startled look about them; like they've just been caught doing something they shouldn't lol

  16. I see, you returned to birds, your favourites.:-)

  17. They certainly are Kozma :)
    Starting to see a few more each day now.
