Trying out my Zoom Lens



Few weeks ago I had been down at the caravan site I visit and I took with me my new zoom lens. I went for a wander around with it trying it out and spotted this little fellow sitting on a branch


Took a step closer

and a little closer

Further along and noticed sheep on the hillside

Across the lake a wagtail looked at me

and opposite the Yerts waiting gusts to arrive

Taking a Selfie






The Nest



The other day I was in our garden when It started raining so I quickly sheltered in a small corner arbour I have in the Garden, Looking up I noticed the beginnings of a wasp nest. I'm always intrigued at the work that goes in to making a nest.


Such a small delicate thing 


Inside small honeycombs awaiting eggs


It looks like it could be blown away is a slight breeze 


When you see it on the roof space it looks very small

Some Otters



Taken at Cotswold Wildlife park a few weeks ago. Nice to see them out playing in the sun, the last time I saw them was when we took our children around some twenty years ago. One was near the wall and I was looking down in it. I thought it looked so soft what does it feel like. Bad mistake, it turned around and bit me, not only that when I stood up it was hanging on my finger. my wife & children just burst in to laughter and some people looking on nearby watched on in horror. Lucky it let go and run back off to it's mates thinking I did not taste that good. This time I was content to take photos of them. They still look soft and cuddly though

 Four of them here two looking romantic

Basking in the sun

Mmm I like you

Blow that I'll bask here a little longer

Snuggle time

I'm off.
 Hope you enjoyed them I'll write a longer blog on Costwold in my Exploration Blog soon

Table for Four







Cambridge from the Air



The other week I was lucky enough to take a flight over Cambridge with my wife so as usual I took a few photos out of the window. See if you can recognise any of the places. I'm afraid I don't know Cambridge so am no help on the buildings you see

The Wye at Erwood


Took these a few years ago on my way home from our caravan. I stopped off at Erwood bridge to ge a few photos up the Wye Valley


Looking Downstream towards Erwood

Past the bend

Looking upstream towards Builth Wells

Another view a bit further along the bridge 

Zooming in upstream. Since I took these the bridge I am stood on was rebuilt but the view is still just as good.
