    ...what's going to pass you in this part of the world- so it pays to keep a camera handy!


  • Not Very Warm...

    ...for the 2nd of May! The general conversation on the bus home from town this afternoon was, how much warmer it feels now the wind has dropped.

  • Shepherdess

    The bus was standing still for about 10 minutes this afternoon, and I was watching this elderly lady trying to catch a new born lamb, behind her house. When I finally decided to get the camera out and get a few pics, the bus moved off- so only this one ph…

    The small black one in centre is about 30mm long.
