No Round Tuits today. Sun umbrella, canvas chair, Sony Walkman and camera in lap. Several insects actually got me up and about from time to time. There were a couple of Blue Tailed Damselflies flitting round the pond for hours occasionally taking a rest.
A rare 'in flight' capture:
Who loves you baby?
High up in the Leylandii a Pigeon kept opening any eye to see what I was up to.
Later it decided to indulge in a bit of nest building, as if there were not enough of the things about as it is!
Spurred on by the Sunshine the Sunflower had opened quite a lot since yesterday and was visited by a Common Carder Bumblebee which spent quite a while testing each section for nectar....
... accompanied by the inevitable Hover Fly.
You know who was making the most of the warm day trying to get a sun tan on his back.
There are still lots of bedraggled looking Large White Butterflies flapping about looking for the right plant on which to deposit an egg or two. This one was caught 'in flight'.
One decided it needed to know the time and spent a while examining the garden clock.
Finally a male Chaffinch was tucking in to Sunflower hearts as though there would be a famine tomorrow.
The tailless blackbird is becoming a nuisance. Yesterday I had to shoo it out of the greenhouse and today it decided to investigate the shed and took some getting out.
