Sunny Again

Monday, October 9th 2017

On guided walks you tend to have favourite stopping places depending on the season.  This tree, full of berries, is one of mine in autumn and spring.  In autumn because it is full of berries and in spring because it is still full of berries, except one year when I stopped to point this out - every single berry had gone!

It has a really good crop of berries so we will wait and see what happens next.

Ivy is just beginning to flower.  The flowers  provide much needed food for many insects at this time of year.  As the insects flit from one flower to the next it is rather difficult to catch one on focus, but today Red Admirals were settling and feeding.

Common Darters were to be found in most sunny spots, but these two seemed to be passing the time of day at the Voley pond.

I can't resist taking photographs of oak leaves against a blue sky!
