Photo-A-Day: June 1st 2017

We spotted this snail on the path when we were walking back from the park a few days ago. It had been raining which of course prompted all the snails to appear and make their way across the paths. I’m not sure why they do that… There were rather a few of them squished as…

I can’t quite believe that it’s been ten days since I last did a photo post. So much for daily posting! You’d think I hadn’t had any pictures to post, but this one was taken about that long ago, and I do have a couple of others to use for the next couple of posts.

It would appear that I enjoy photographing trees. But how could I resist this one? Perhaps it’s more shrub than tree… But anyway, a windswept tree on a rocky shore, backed by steely ice water with a dark vision of land appearing through the mist beyond. Something about that is very appealing.

Hello, birdie! This bird was a bit closer when we first spotted it, but by the time I’d got my camera out it had hopped further away. I zoomed in as much as my lense allows to take this picture. Ideally I would have moved towards it for a better picture, but it was already…
