Shooting the Breeze



My wife & I were on a campsite a few weeks ago and while sat in the shade shooting the breeze were watching the wildlife and taking the odd photo of them






This blackbird was trying to keep cool





but eventually decided to leave





Not far away a Goldfinch was preening itself




and having a good old preen




while it's mate looked for the odd morel





A squirrel spotted we had put out some bread





and went to investigate

Behind him a dragonfly sun itself on a twig


Do I come closer for that piece of bread

 Yes I will




Not sure I should have with that dog nearby






Maybe I'll hide
Mean while the blackbird watched on

Amazing what you can see if you sit sill and watch

  7. Interesting seeing the goldfinch there. Looks a bit different from the goldfinches here. Quite a cute little finch! Nice to see the wildlife.

  8. I love this! It reminds me how much I miss my long walks at the Desert Botanical Garden. It's too hot right now. There a couple of place there where I sit and watch as the birds and ground squirrels go about their business.
