RSPB Old Moor

I needed some time to reconnect with nature, and where better than an RSPB reserve? I headed out before the day got too hot, and as I was driving through the village a huge heron flew overhead. I knew it was going to be a good day, because herons signify stillness and tranquility.

Reconnecting with the earth again

After spending most of the week before indoors for the art exhibition, it was so wonderful to be back oustide and in such a beautiful location.

The beautiful wildflowers filled me with gratitude as I made my way slowly to one of the ponds. I must have stood there for 15 minutes watching the dazzling damselflies going about their busy business. A couple stopped and asked me for advice on cameras and lenses. It’s funny as my lens looks so much bigger than it is because I keep the lens hood on for protection.

Walking slowly around I noticed butterflies, bees and insects I’d not seen in a long time. I wondered how many visitor made a bee-line (pardon the pun) to see the birds and missed all the rest in their mission.
