Nature album

This years cruising itinerary of London, Oxford, Coventry, Leicester, Birmingham, Warwick etc sounds a bit urban when I tell friends where I’ve been.  My photo album tells a different story.  I don’t find it easy to get good pictures of plants and animals but a small percentage come out alright, so here’s a selection from our cruises this year.

Don't forget, clicking brings 'em up big

1 Just a mossy branch, but the light was good.  This is my favourite.

3. A visitor at Foxton Locks

4. perhaps the roses on our cans are more realistic than we think.  Actually I think this butterfly looks like
an old plane ready to take off

5. Crab apple blossom I think.  there was a bumper crop this autumn.

7. A Richmond on Thames heron looking, as all herons do, grumpy and miserable

There are some lovely shots here. I guess being in a boat means you get to see a great deal more than others.

Lovely photos, lovely title. Liked the correlation between cruising itinerary and photo album. My favourite is the 'spitfire' butterfly!

What beautiful photos, Neil. Are you still using your Panasonic TZ something or other? I gave mine to my daughter and am now wishing I hadn't...some of these are really excellent.
