Holiday postcard

Some pictorial memories of our recent trip to this small North African country. It was good to get away from the horrendous British weather for a while, and watch the sun rise over the Mediterranean every morning :-).

A different colour...

A bright Speckled Wood (small so probably male), seen in Tunisia last week. This is Pararge aegeria ssp aegeria, the Mediterranean/North African version - the pale yellow/cream markings of the Northern European variety are replaced by larger, vibrant orange blotches. A real treat to come across this in February!

You lookin' at me?

A Catalan cat, one of the many feral residents of the Montjuic parks in Barcelona. They seemed to be well-fed by local sympathisers and mostly in good condition - this beauty wasn't standing any nonsense from anyone.

Caught in the act

A perky little robin defending his territory with a torrent of song. Seen during a lovely riverside walk on Anglesey a few years ago.

Dusk over the Ouse

Looking downstream towards Lendal Bridge, York. Taken from the riverside path alongside the Museum Gardens, still covered in mud and silt from recent floods. (Actually taken in 2011 but may well still apply - someone will know.)

By the dawn's early light

Queen of the South coast: Eastbourne Pier at sunrise.

Earth has not anything to show more fair..

...and this is what it looks like without the fireworks!
