Great hearing everyone's comments I'm enjoying this thread and of course the wonderful pictures!

Beautiful Red Admiral David!!

I'm looking forward to the 'homework' Little-Anne and intrigued to see what it is?

The kestrel was a fluke as I spotted her sat on a telegraph pole so I stopped the car wound back the sunroof a slowly crept forward until I was right underneath her and then fired off a few quick snaps before she worked out what was going on!

No doubt that's why she has a confused look!! LOL

Until I can get out & about again, I've almost exhausted my store of pics.....I'll soon have to resort to my holiday snaps!

Anyway, as I recall this is a Small Tortoiseshell butterfly.

Cia, beautiful rose.

Higgy great pictures.

David I like holiday shots  Hope eye healing well.

Ann I also get wobbly on piers, so no way I would have crossed it either.

"David I like holiday shots  

Oh goodie!

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c186/DavidKnapper/holidaysnap_zpsa8456325.jpg

Have loads more when you're ready......including one of Granny with Blackpool Tower growing out of the top of her head.

.........................................................................................................

More great shots folks.....thank you.

Higgy - Butterflies look great when you get it right, but the little buggers usually fly away just as you get the shot set up.

Nice uncomplicated shot of your beautiful rose, Cia.

Ann - Great shot of the rope bridge.....am I right in thinking it's in Ireland?

18/01/2014 at 10:57

Some wonderful landscapes L-Ann and a family snap that could do with a date on it I reckon David??

Wonder who has the oldest picture ?

18/01/2014 at 11:35

Kef, you look so cute.

Little-ann I can't see a 'red' thing. I'm sure I went on a bridge like that in Cornwall/Devon, when I was a child, I didn't know at the time but my Dad hated heights and didn't want to go on it, but I did!, could have only been about 7 or 8 at the time. Wouldn't get me on there now!!

I haven't got the oldest picture Kef i'm only 21

Thanks Lily. Cute didn't last long.

Higgy I'm only 27.   I meant the oldest photo we own, somewhere my Mum has a snap of my Dad as a child, he was born 1927. Just wondered if we had some really ancient ones.

Ann I can't see a red thing either.
