Skyline Sihouettes





These amazing skies were seen during a walk I took yesterday.

A Good Day for Wildlife

A remarkably friendly thrush decided to allow me a picture,



As well as two little sparrows

While this blue butterfly was sunbathing on an osteospermum


Just long enough to let me capture its image
before flying away.

Walking to Nowhere, and beyond.

One song I like is Paolo Nutini's "Last Request" which has the lines,
"Sure, I know we're going nowhere,
But one last time, let's go there...."


This afternoon we took the opportunity to walk to Nowhere, as evidenced by the signpost pictured above, but we did not stop there.  Further on, there was a cafe serving the luxuriously delicious ice creams produced by Roskilly's of Cornwall, with superb views in addition.


In fact, my indulgence was not ice cream, but iced yogurt - peach flavour.  It was so good, tangy and refreshing and not too sweet.  Not good for the diet, but what a treat!

Tea Party for Sparrows

Does Snow White live here?  It looks as if these sparrows are determined to clear up the remains of a delicious cream tea.


Maybe it's a good example of symbiotic existence.


The humans had disappeared inside for shelter from the elements, but the birds weren't about to let a few drops of rain spoil their al fresco meal.

Skies

They fascinate me, do skies.  Ever-changing, so many variations....


One day, there are the silken traceries of white against the blue.



The next, subtle irregular striations of grey, suddenly climbing steeply into a blurred mass.

We sat and sheltered from the rain, watching the lightening show whilst sipping iced tea and spicy ginger beer,

Wonder what skies await me and my camera today?
