Welcome to my blog.
Don't expect anything too high-tech or flashy, this is simply a 'diary' to share some of my photos, thoughts and observations - with a particular bias towards the natural world and the countryside around my home.

It's often worth taking a look at things from a different perspective. Recently, we took a walk around Mapperley Reservoir and while we were walking through the trees, looking up, through the canopy to the blue sky above, was quite rewarding.
With the sun filtering through the new foliage, it made a lovely picture.
In our own back garden, the Foxgloves we've planted this year, have proved very popular with the bumble bees and it's strange to see the flowers from the bee's point of view.
The spots in the throat of the flower, help to guide insects to the nectary deep inside. Closer in and the structure of the flower guides the bees further in so that pollen on the anthers which can be seen on the upper surface of the flower, brush off onto the bee.
