My aunt & uncle from London came to stay this weekend, we went out for a couple of short walks in nearby countryside and I managed to snap a couple of nice pictures of the local wildlife. Talking of local wildlife, I got bitten to death practically last night by a very bothersome mosquito which took a particular liking to my neck – I just hope it appreciated the fine vintage it was drinking!

When taking photos like this the most tricky part is being able to do so quick enough before the stupid things fly off. I think I rushed things a bit so a lot turned out to be blurred or out of focus but the beauty of being digital means there was no wastage 🙂


We were very lucky with the weather, successfully managing to dodge a couple of torrential downpours which seem to have typified the climate of late.
