Tuesday was a complete right off, not often I say that about a day. It rained and rained and was freezing and really horrible.
Today I walked up to Glenridding for a paper and to give the dogs an airing, it was nasty cold and foggy.
Barnacle Geese in the fog………….they were on land but the dogs spotted them before I did. A lovely small goose and relatively quiet for the species. It’s odd they are the only geese to be seen on Ullswater. They must defend their territory as there are few Mallard and Swans.
What follows is an extravaganza of reflections.
Now I’m going to have serious words with my camera………..This is not infrared or overly manipulated. Weird is what it is. I tried converting it to black and white, it was worse…..I should be able to replicate this effect. lets just pray I do not find out how to.
Spotted this Peacock Butterfly not in the best of condition……..not surprised it was minus two Celsius last night and precious little warmer today out of the sun…………..be freezing if there were a wind. Poor mite! let us hope for a good butterfly year. Last year was terrible where I was. The year before there were thousands of them.
That’s all for today. I do have dozens of reflections. They are one of my favourite subjects. So a good day for me.
