Still miss my little buddy on Bute. He’s been gone just over a year now, and I find myself looking for him every time we visit.
They look like pterodactyls to me.
A friendly Bute seal wishing you a lovely weekend.
The Isle of Bute might be my favourite place on earth, and Ettrick Bay is my favourite beach there. The views of Arran are spectacular (when the clouds cooperate), and there is always wildlife about. I am looking forward to warmer weather and lots of time spent staring at the sea.
Lounging on the cool grass with your wings out helps in the heat.
This young female blackbird has been visiting our window lately. She’s fairly calm and doesn’t seem too bothered by humans. She’ll eat with us standing a couple of feet away. She also doesn’t seem to mind having a camera shoved in her face.
Our blackbird pal may have a bit of competition. This little robin performed all weekend.
Would you like some tasty bread? Um, no.
You might have guessed that I’m a bird fan, especially owls. I think it’s because they remind me of cats.
A pair of bickering robins on the Isle of Bute this past weekend. They were quite entertaining.
This little guy is so beautiful that he doesn’t need any photoshopping. There were a pair at the garden centre today. I’d have both.
There appear to be fewer hours in the day lately. Hopefully normal service will resume soon. In the meantime, enjoy a swallow and a jet. They have lots in common.
A small gull staying well out of reach. He’s about as ready for Spring as I am.
I met this fellow outside of a restaurant in Edinburgh. He was totally fearless and had no problem with my getting up close and personal with my camera. He must not have thought I’d take away his food.
