White Rock-rose a nationally rare species which thrives on the slopes at Berry Head
A Robin chick...oh so cute...everybody say ah!
A female Orange Tip I think, as you can just about see the colourful underside.
A Wall Brown
The Meadow looking beautiful. Learning more about the camera I have changed the setting to get a better depth of field on these next shots.
Plants on the cliff edge
Hubby spotted The Fairmile returning from a trip to Dartmouth and Slapton Sands
The wonderful capabilities of the zoom, same boat (yes the little dot above the rocks) in the photo below, just zoomed out to wide angle to get a scenic image.
Kayaking a perfect day for it
The start of Berry Head from the edge of the coastal path. It was about 5.30pm and hardly anyone was there. A rare opportunity to get a photo without people and dogs.
Fishing boat coming around Berry Head, way in the distance
This little butterfly just caught my eye in the grass as we walked along. A Common Blue I think.
Large area of wild grass on Berry Head again, no people in the shot hurrah!
A first try at the panorama mode with Torquay in the distance
The same fishing boat, now coming into Torbay and the gulls are still following
The very end of Berry Head and the lighthouse building...look at that blue sky!
A lovely bright boat coming around Berry Head just before we returned home
I'm genuinely sorry for not keeping up with my posts and especially for just not having the time to look at your posts and comment at the moment. It's hectic, so I might be a little quiet in blog land over the next few weeks.
Whilst I'm on the subject of stressful things I note with a heavy heart that bird issues are in the news at the moment. The go ahead to cull gulls at the Ribble Estuary makes me sad. Natural England has made a case for allowing the destruction of some birds nests and eggs (robins, pied wagtails and starlings). Along with the badger culls, I hold my head in shame as a member of the human race!
Until next time
Take care all
