Damselflies

Damselflies

Today is Day Five of my #naturephotochallenge for which +Matthew Lambley kindly nominated me. I've really enjoyed taking part, so thank you Matthew! As Daisy Chain is beside a lake, during the summer we enjoy seeing hundreds of damselflies. They don't always sit this still for a photo! I hope to take a photograph of one with dew on it's back one day!

I'd like to nominate my google+ friend +Isla Canela Apartment Rental Andalucia Spain as she's usually up for a challenge, but only if she'd like to!

Today is Day four of my #naturephotochallenge for which +Matthew Lambley kindly nominated me. Sunrise is my favourite part of the day so I couldn't complete this challenge without posting one sunrise photo! I usually post sunrises on a Sunday but I've made an exception! This one is taken looking across Somerford Lagoon, a lake in Cotswolds Water Park.

I'd like to nominate my google+ friend +Sitges Barcelona Holiday Rental Apartment – Spain but only if she'd like to – no pressure!

Today is Day three of my #naturephotochallenge for which +Matthew Lambley kindly nominated me. On Monday we had a beautifully blue crisp sunny day which reminded me of this photo which I took earlier in the year. It is taken on a lake near Daisy Chain on the Lower Mill Estate in the Cotswolds. I love it when the water is so still that you can't really tell which way up the photo should be!

I'd like to nominate my google+ friend +Holiday Cottage, Steyning, near Brighton, England but only if she'd like to – no pressure!

Long tailed tit

Long tailed tit

Today is Day two in my #naturephotochallenge for which +Matthew Lambley kindly nominated me. Yesterday was a beautifully crisp blue day and when we went out for a walk in the afternoon there was a flock of long tailed tits enjoying the berries on this tree. They were quite tricky to photograph as although the tree has lost its leaves it is still thick with branches which kept getting in the way! Anyway, this was my best photo! This particular bird was busy preening a lot of the time.

I'd like to nominate my good google+ friend +Pescadero, CA Vacation Cottage but only if she'd like too and if she has time (she might be too busy fighting off the heron from her fish pond!)

Thank you to +Lecrín Valley Villa Rental Granada Spain. for taking up yesterday's challenge. Do pop across and have a look at her #naturephotographychallenge posts

I've been nominated by +Matthew Lambley for the five day #NaturePhotoChallenge and this is Day 1. Having had really wet weather over the weekend it was lovely to wake up to a crisp frosty morning with clear blue skies. Now that most of the trees have lost their leaves it's much easier to see beautiful robins singing from their branches. Robins sum up this kind of weather pretty well!

I'd like to nominate my G+ friend +Lecrín Valley Villa Rental Granada Spain. to take up the Five day Nature Photo challenge but only if she has the time and would like to – absolutely no pressure!
