Wild flowers/plants have grabbed my attention recently, so here's a few.
If you're bored with plants, skip these ..................

Not the demon people are led to believe. See my other blog for some facts.

Green-veined White on Common Ragwort
Brown Hawker Dragonfly
A field of cows caught my eye one morning.
Usually the calves are taken away from dairy cows at a very early age, (their mothers), which is obviously very distressing for both animals. The reason is so some of us can have the mothers milk in our tea.
We are the only animal species that drink the mothers milk of another animal.
The calves are then slaughtered for meat.
Sad, but true.
These cows, however, were given a slight reprieve, and allowed to bond; if only for a short time.
I watched them as they made a futile attempt at bonding; licking each other, and being close.
Enjoy your tea.
I'll end with a shot of my boy.
Always my companion.
