Out for a walk in the woods, but I had to stop for a while to say hallo to this beauty.
A mixture of flowers from gardens and in the woods.
A few roadside flowers.
These unusual flowers were blooming on a tree behind the railway station in Aveiro.
This dragonfly probably flew into the shade accidentally. Fortunately we were able to encourage it back into the sunshine.
Out for a brief walk, there was time for a few snapshots …
Overcast and a little chilly this morning, and this little beetle was dozing. But as the sun came out from behind the clouds s/he started to wake up …
For the past few days a grasshopper has been resting on our patio. Today there were two.
Out for a walk a dragonfly alighted on a nearby tree to take a brief rest. How could I resist?
Heading into the house and this lovely creature was just relaxing on the wall.
We have a Cypress in the back yard that no matter how hard we try will not grow properly. Now various parts are dying off at different rates, though the colours of the leaves as the life fades are striking.
