Birds Of A Different Feather

How do birds manage to look so adorable. It doesn’t seem to matter whether it’s a perching little blue tit or playful gulls they all capture our attention.

Circus Acts In My Garden

You never know what you’re going to see when you point the camera out the window.

Boats, Butterfly and Bird.

Two Shetland yoals at the beach in Hoswick, Sandwick. Here’s a link for the yoal.

A painted lady butterfly alights on a sea pink (or thrift).

On to Bigton and St. Ninian’s Isle where I caught my daughter taking a photo of a wheatear.

Swan Loch

On the way back from Minn Beach we stopped at this little loch at Bridge End where we saw two swans. This was one of them and the other can barely be seen in the background.

Male Mallard

Male mallard with the easily recognisable shiny green feathered head. Saw this one at Hay’s Dock in Lerwick.

Brown And Beautiful

How adorable is this hen. Because of it’s inquisitiveness it stayed still long enough for some nice shots. This one was from a group of very well cared for hens – the ones you see in the previous post. If you love hens these images are worth viewing in the enlarged size.

Childhood Reminder

I love this photo, not because it’s well taken or anything (because it really isn’t) but it reminds me of happy times when I was a child. The summers seemed longer and warmer then but I’m glad that so many rural areas like this in Shetland remain quiet and peaceful.

How Much Is That…..

…..doggie in the window? Had to detour from Tesco’s because of roadworks and it brought me to this lovely place, the Ness of Sound area. I could hardly manage to photograph the hen as it was so tame and kept coming towards me – for something tasty, more than likely.

Who Needs Makeup?

This little sparrow is just being who it is. No bright colours or fancy feathers. Just plain…..and brown…..and beautiful!


Starling On A Branch

I’ve always loved starlings even though they can be noisy and aggressive. They can also be comical mimics and you never know what’s going to chirp out of them next. Beautiful colours too.
