Macro on Monday - Guess What

gold starNot too many problems with last week's mystery photo. My congratulations along with the virtual gold star goes to TexWisGirl, Adrian, Keith and Ragged Robin for correctly recognising a nettle leaf which was photographed from underneath.



I don't think this week's mystery photo will cause too many problems.
Guess What:

Clue: It didn't ring in the New Year.

No prizes, just for fun.

Great Tit Nestbox Update

As any of you who have been keeping up with the Great Tit chicks will have notices there are now only four live ones. Sadly one died sometime last Friday night / Saturday morning. The same thing happened last year. The remaining four look to be healthy and I noticed today that at least one has its eyes wide open and is starting to exercise its wings.


  1. ooh, that's got to be a bluebell!

    (and thanks for the hint last week that it also grows in texas or i wouldn't have ventured a guess. :))

  2. Well, well, ding dong, Blue Bell.

  3. A Bluebell John.

    Sad about the Great Tit. Natures way of ensuring enough food will go round though.

  4. It seems so obvious now I know ;-) Hopefully, I won't go wrong this week with my guess of Bluebell :-)

    Sorry to read you have lost a chick John. When I was watching the live streaming earlier there seemed to be two that were more dominant and getting the food that was brought in. I suppose it's always going to be survival of the fittest. Let's hope they all thrive and that the weather improves before they leave the nest.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
