Seeing Differently Challenge – 6 of 15

Today I’m sharing my 6th image for this challenge.

On Saturday afternoon, at last light – the most amazing sea mist rolled inland. This is unusual, but with the sun going down, it was catching the rays and all the particles in the air. Wow!

I’m not sure if a camera can ever do justice to a scene like this, but I had to tryΒ  πŸ™‚

What made it really special, was a dear little visitor. A Willy Wagtail – one of my favourite little birds… He was flitting around catching all the bugs in the air…well, I’m sure he was hoping anyway!Β  What a wonderful scene. I’m so glad I was a part of it.

seeing-differently-6_800_robyngosby-2016I love watching the birds – we have so many here and they are wonderful. It’s not very often though, that I am quick enough to capture the moment. For me, all this moment needed was some fairy dust – actually if you look closely the little bugs are substituting for the fairy dust!

If this challenge (idea) appeals to you, please jump in. You are welcome πŸ™‚ We will be exploring throughout October.

Weeds, seeds and Wildflowers..

For some time now, I’ve been wanting to photograph the wonderful and whimsical world of weeds. I suppose I do anyway, as there are many seed heads, dandelions and more to be found on this blog.

I love watching beautiful flowers bud and grow, even to their last petal or beyond – and weeds are pretty interesting too – in fact some of them are quite delightful. They are often overlooked as a thing of beauty.

Does anyone remember the ‘Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady’?

I loved that book – I remember perusing the pages when I was young, thinking how wonderful the beautiful illustrations were.Β  Well, now I’m amazed to say, I feel like I’m finding those pages come to life – and finally noticing what is really tucked away in little ‘overlooked’ corners, here and there.

I thought I’d share a few of my finds from this past 2 weeks.

It’s so good to be back looking closely through the lens – I want to do more of this – finding more of nature’s little mysteries πŸ™‚

Illusion…

This colourful insect was swaying in the wind on the leaf of a Birch tree yesterday…

I thought his cloak of invisibility was amazing…

Of course, he knows I couldn’t see him πŸ˜‰
