Daisy & Holly here!
It has been a super summer type of day today, we were out for our walk this morning and the breeze was blowing gently from across the water. We could sniff the Bacon and Eggs being cooked in the Greasy Spoon cafe on Southend Sea Front or maybe it was Herne Bay!
Old Two Legs took some more pictures of the Spiky Leaf Sort of Thistle Type of Plant 'cos the blooms now seem only to last a couple of days before they start to fade!
|Another Bloom on the Spiky Leaf Sort of Thistle Type of Plant!|
|A Moving Breakfast!|
|Feeling a bit Grubby!|
He did laugh when we told him that OTL was keeping a very close eye on us!
Back home to some Doggy Scoff for breakfast and then a snooze by the side of the pond before going for our lunch time walk!
|Pool Side Puppy!|
This Small Skipper or Thymelicus sylvestris, if you want to sound posh, was sitting on one of Holly's Whizz Bang plants and although OTL had got the right camera and the right lens, he could do nothing about the wrong wind!
The butterfly had landed on the flower but was being blown all over the place! Poor OTL just couldn't get the focus and depth of field correct. When he got one right the other was so far out that the picture looked horrid!
|Next time a tripod and no wind please!|
He really wasn't this close!
|A Big Splash!|
As we said, In your Dreams!
On the way back to the car we spotted some more insects on a bloom, so, OTL just had to take a picture. Trouble is, we are not sure what they were doing, OTL said they were playing 'Piggy Back', Holly didn't believe him!
|Piggy Back Games?|
It's a hard life being a puppy you know!
See you tomorrow and don't forget, it's Friday!
