Brightwell Baldwin

Taken in the beginning of June when I visited the church there. Not much to tell you about the Village other than it's built around the country house there the seat of the Stone Family who are buried in the church there. The house was burnt down in 1786 and rebuilt in 1790 but has since been demolished leaving only the kitchen wing surviving an interesting cruciform dovecote nether of which I saw when I was at the church

The Lord Nelson Public House which is 17th or 18th century

It's now a gastro pub and from what I have seen quite busy

The old pub sign showing its age

And a look up through the village

 I'll leave you with this shot of a cottage I saw when I parked up near the church

Last Weeks Sunset

Last week I showed a series of photos taken through outthe day finishing with a sunset. They were all taken with my iphone. After I finished with the phone I went in and came out with my DSLR and took this photo fo the sunset.

Leave Sleeping Dragons Be

The Porcupine

Some more photos of my visit to Cotswold Wildlife park a couple of months ago. One of the animals I saw was the Porcupine. Now to me I'd never seen any spiny animal any bigger than a Hedgehog so when I saw the Porcupine I was surprised as it was bigger than my Dog and the quills on its back really long, not only that it can shoot them out at predators any way I took a few and had a nice little surprise while doing it

Looking through the glass into the pen it lived
Another one which was outside
Cute little face
But what is this beside Mummy
 A couple of little critters looking to come out in the pen to see mummy
Please don't squish me
I'm ok, can we go in now mummy

The Dandilion

Trying out my Zoom Lens

Few weeks ago I had been down at the caravan site I visit and I took with me my new zoom lens. I went for a wander around with it trying it out and spotted this little fellow sitting on a branch

Took a step closer

and a little closer

Further along and noticed sheep on the hillside

Across the lake a wagtail looked at me

and opposite the Yerts waiting gusts to arrive

Taking a Selfie

The Nest

The other day I was in our garden when It started raining so I quickly sheltered in a small corner arbour I have in the Garden, Looking up I noticed the beginnings of a wasp nest. I'm always intrigued at the work that goes in to making a nest.

Such a small delicate thing 

Inside small honeycombs awaiting eggs

It looks like it could be blown away is a slight breeze 

When you see it on the roof space it looks very small
