My Sunday Photo – September 2nd, 2018.

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.

My Sunday Photo – November 26th, 2017.

We actually checked the weather the night before we went for a walk at the RSPB’s Surlingham Church Marsh, near Norwich, and we knew we had to get out reasonably early to beat the rain.

It was cold but lovely and bright and we were hopeful of seeing some wildlife – until the clay pigeon shooting on the opposite bank started. Nothing seemed keen to come out with all the bangs going on.

Imagine our excitement when Mark spotted a toad in the middle of the path. I quickly snapped off a shot, thinking it would hop off as Freya excitedly thundered towards it but there it sat…because it was a rubber toy.

Ah well, it was still a lovely morning (and we were sitting drinking hot chocolate just as the rain started).

My Sunday Photo – week 35.

While I know this photo has a lot wrong with it from a technical point of view, looking at it makes me feel joyful for some reason – maybe because the bird was having a lovely splash on a hot day and seemed to be enjoying itself?
