A selection from the last few days, before they're consigned to a distant memory in my head.
An invasive introduction here, and one that causes concern where it grows rampantly.
Orange Balsam. I think it's rather nice myself.
Some sunshine does make a difference to pictures, especially when you combine water.
Part of the Grand Union Canal, that runs through Milton Keynes
Nearby is a future 'nature reserve'. Still in the process of construction, and gravel digging, it is attracting some good birds already. Here's a shot of a hole.
Going to be one of the future lakes that make up Manor Farm, in Milton Keynes. I wish they'd get a bloody move on with it.
A young one next:
A juvenile Grey Heron, looking very young.
A couple of butterflies next.
A couple of dragons:
Another butterfly, before it flies off
and if you're still with me, a couple more birds to finish with:
Great Crested Grebe
and I'll finish with a grown up Grey Heron
Well, if you stuck with it to here, you deserve a medal. Have a great upcoming weekend, and I hope the sun shines where you are. If it does, don't forget to put some water out for the birds.
Put some out anyway, they always need it.
