A quickie today - a few new images from the Garden

Well I am still busy decorating, or rebuilding it feels like on my week off!!

So here are a few images that I took the opportunity to get during tea or lunch breaks. All of these are firsts for me in the garden. There was a delightful Holly Blue butterfly that came in too, but sadly I was not able to get an image. Haven't seen it since either.

Sparrowhawk has made a couple of unsuccessful swoops that I saw - stunning!!, and the Great Spotted Woodpecker is back in grubbing on a dead branch on the apple tree.

  1. Stunning photos with great color. All of them. Great detail on the wings of the Common Darter and you can see the fine fuzz on the Male Gatekeeper.
