My Sunday Photo – September 2nd, 2018.

IMG_9245

It feels like I’ve hardly taken any dragonfly/hawker photos this year, which is odd because I think they are fascinating.

To me, it feels like they are equally intrigued by what I’m up to. This one seemed very inquisitive, buzzing around me several times for a better look.

We made friends at Earsham Wetland Centre, near Bungay, which we visited for the first time yesterday. It’s a fantastic place. As the website reveals:

Earsham has been home to a collection of native wildlife and rare breed farm animals since 1976. Our wildlife reserve is home to a wide variety of wild animals that live on the scrapes and amongst the wildflowers that surround the paddocks. Mallard, Gadwall, Shoveler, Teal and Shelduck can usually be found dabbling in the shallow lakes, being occasionally joined by Oystercatchers, Redshank, Curlew and Lapwing.

We didn’t get to stay for long because Freya added another animal to the long list of things she is now terrified of.

Meet John. A 10-week-old orphaned fawn. Adorable, right? Apparently not.

No sooner had we arrived than Freya wanted to go home. We managed to get her to stay for an ice-cream in the end but then some chickens came under the picnic table and it was game over.

Poor Freya, it must be horrible to be so frightened. It’s come on all of a sudden. Any tips on how best to help her greatly appreciated.

  1. Oh dear, sorry to read that Freya found the deer and chickens scary. Hope she gets over it in time so you can go and get some more great pictures at Earsham. They are all fantastic shots Tara. Always love your imagery. #mysundayphoto

  3. We seem to be surrounded by dragonflies at the moment but I’ve never managed to photograph one and the photos of John are just amazing. My eldest is suddenly afraid of dogs. So odd as we have dog sit a lot in the past. We’re also having to keep the chickens in as the rooster are a little aggressive at the moment and scaring him witless. I guess they are on a similar height level so it must seem so much scarier. I’m hoping it’s just a phase and keep reiterating that the animals are probably more scared of him…

    1. Oh no! I think it all started when a dog jumped up. I’m hoping its just a phase too. I wish we could have pets to try and help her get used to them but it’s difficult in a top floor flat.
