A new month, a new November, and not many shopping days until... eek!

Chateau Frontinac in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. This was a great holiday!

I have just been shopping in Golders Green. If anyone remembers OnimisiB who sometimes posts here this is where I took him when he came to visit me on his way home to Nigeria.

A couple of weekends ago, Maynooth and I went exploring caves down in the south-west of Western Australia. This is Jewell Cave near Augusta. I thought this was the most beautiful of the caves we visited.

This is the Small Copper butterfly, Lycaena phlaeas. I was surprised to see this little beauty active and feeding on an afternoon in early November. Sadly, many of the insects still alive at this time of the year lack the vibrancy of colour of the newly emerged imago as they approach hibernation or the ends of their lives...

Saying that, he is still a mightily handsome little fellow!

A typical road in Golders Green, but on the right is the newly built Sobell Centre, replacing the older one as a Jewish care and activity centre as well as a residential home.

The river Brent, Hendon on the left, Cricklewood on the right. Brent Cross shopping centre, Britain's first mall built in 1976 is just past the railway bridge. Before then there was a greyhound track past the bridge and behind a row of recently built (and since demolished) office blocks a sewage works.

Did I hear you ask for more birds? No? Well, I am here to annoy you with another bird - the male paradise shelduck.

I cannot recall whether or not I have posted this image previously. I was on an outing when I came across a large pile of very old chains that had been abandoned for some time. I was attracted by the colour of the rust in the sunlight but, on closer inspection, I was also struck by the textures on the links... I hope that you agree.

I'm sure those chains would be entered for the Turner Prize if claimed by a famous artist.

A field near West Malling in Kent, the garden of England which it truly is.

I seem to be in a bird frame of mind so far in November so here is a song thrush on a fence post from the other day.

This looks a little like human skin but it's actually a close-up of the underside of a Beech leaf...

This is the U.S. Coast Guard station and lighthouse in Chatham, Massachusetts, on the southeast corner of Cape Cod. This lighthouse was built in 1877. It is made of cast iron panels and is the third in that location since 1806.

I always like petrol stations as photos as the coloured lights make a nice view, especially when it's getting dark. This is in Woking.

This was the photograph that I recently entered into a photography competition, my first ever; sadly it never made it to the final ten which are currently facing the public vote on the Skye Photo Challenge website... Maybe I'll fare better next year?

This is a small flock of Greylag Geese flying across Glen Brittle on the Isle of Skye towards the Cuillin Ridge in the background.
