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.
Holiday snaps!? I'd better get some more butterflies in quick then!
Another cracker by the way David!
Green Veined White with Hoverfly...
My beautifully scented Twice in a blue moon rose, from last summer.
talking about holiday snaps no i didnt go over ti but OH did
Brave OH. I hate heights.
Same here Lizzie - just looking at that picture makes my legs go wobbly.
Where was the picture taken little-ann?
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
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?
correct David its the Carrick a rede bridge, this is another from the same holiday the path starts in the top left corner of the picture and zig zags dowm to the sea Oh took the picture
the red thing is me it looks better enlarged
Thought it was, Ann...and you, so handsome!
Another nice picture.
My hair still sticks up like a chimney sweeps brush
Oh dear, now your testing me with these wonderful holiday pictures!
Some wonderful landscapes L-Ann and a family snap that could do with a date on it I reckon David??
So here's my initial contribution from not very many holiday snaps. We haven't even had a holiday for the last couple of years!!....
All taken in Cornwall...
Sorry but can't give exact locations as can't remember...
1959 / 1960 ?
Prior to the popular basin cut hair, that I had in the 60's.
Wonder who has the oldest picture ?
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
Okay, I see I need to bring out the big guns This is me Maldives job!
Some great 'old' pictures there KEF which I can't compete with as before my time I'm afraid!!
'Big Guns' Well done David I can honestly say with that amazing picture consider me 'shot down!' LOL
Not been to The indian Ocean, but would love to.
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.
