Thanks for the welcome liz and Tredici.

Gorgeous palm, and I love the fun zucchini!

Sat, your photo looks so peaceful.

Santana, you set my mouth watering with the jars of jam!

Roses, dinosaurs and stained glass - all great captures.

Tredici, loved the bluebird! How lucky to be able to watch the comings of goings of such a wonderful flash of colour.

Not so brave now, huh Heidi?



My German Shepherd who will gleefully chase, catch and eat any and all insects, was quite trepidacious when confronted by this Stag beetle. The beetle, however, showed no fear whatsoever as it reared up, waved its pincers menacingly and clicked noisily at her.

Please tell me that is an unusually small German Shepherd!

Lovely shot Sherry, I can almost smell the perfume!

I had a matchstick in some of the photos, which didn't show up in this one. It was longer than the matchstick, I figure about 2.5", maybe a tad longer - about 7cm for those who prefer metric.

Here is a road for Satguru. (-8 One where you can drive off into the clouds.





This is from Trailridge Road in Colorado. I believe it has some type of distinction as the world's highest paved roadway. At the summit you are in the Alpine Tundra, above timberline. The poles you see are to mark the road for the snowplows or any vehicles unlucky enough to get caught in a storm or fog. Sounds scary but the road is only open under safe conditions and the views are breathtaking. I will post some on another day.

Last week we visited the Farne Islands where thousands of seabirds are nesting. These are puffins, tough little birds which spend most of their lives at sea.

I love those little guys, lol, what a great picture. Farne was on Springwatch last week... you probably missed that because you were there!

Who says there is no more beauty once a flower has bloomed then faded? Some may see this merely as a dead amaryllis lily. I saw it as four young girls deep in conversation about boys, music and other teenage mysteries and delights.

Cool, Mags.

They look a bit medieval to me. Girls talked about those same subjects back then, didn't they? I can hear the lutes now from the rose garden....

Nice selection, and there is even some guano for me as I just wrote a quiz on it. You can walk along the Thames for miles in Surrey with similar scenes and I've been on a number of boat trips from east to west and in between over the years.

This is the De la Warr pavilion in Bexhill on the south coast from a day trip we took mainly to see it in 2002

This little family decided to head back towards the river when I started to get a bit to close to them.

Oh Picqero what a great shot. Such darling feathered friends. Another beautiful offering from MadMags.

Hmmm... I haven't seen many Canadian Geese lately. Guess they've all gone home so SLiz can photo their offspring.

This is the "frozen tundra". Some of the scenery along the aforementioned Trailridge Road.

Another image from my Farne Islands visit last week. These birds are guillemots, part of a huge colony of many thousands. To hear their cries, mingled with the cries of other seabirds, click here and turn up your sound

What a noisy bunch! Amazing images picqero. Did you creep up on them? Not one is looking your way!

This hibiscus is one of several photos of flowers I took in Sydney, just after a light shower.

Sat, I see that pavilion was built in 1935 and yet it still looks futuristic today.

Liz, I never thought I'd be a bit homesick for the Canada Geese, lol. Good to see them again.

Gorgeous shot, Tredici, what untouched beauty! Picqero, such a noise from those little guys! Nice shot.

Well, I should have been washing dishes and cleaning up after a barbeque, but instead I wandered into the kitchen, camera in hand. Crumbled foil reflected in an unwashed wine glass and suddenly a counter that needs clearing away took on a different dimension.

You're dead right Mags, modern is a design school originating in Germany in the late 19th century rather than meaning recent, and peaking in the 30s.

This however is ancient as contrast, the church in the little village of Aldenham in Hertfordshire

Oh my. A run of terrific photos. And speaking of which does anyone hear from McShellsie? I miss seeing her splendid contributions.

This little one posed so nicely for me I thought I should oblige and take his portrait.

I think most birds are posers at heart but this young gull was keeping a beady eye on what I was planning to do with the camera. Either that, or he was annoyed it wasn't an icecream.

Not a great pic, but I finally managed to catch a Jackrabbit! Can you spot him? Jackrabbits are actually hares -- they're pretty big -- at least twice the size of the cottontail rabbits we have here. I see them pretty often, but they're very skittish. They usually take off before I can get a picture.
