These photos were taken on the same day as the oak tree in the previous post. Most of the birds are water birds on or near Derwentwater. However I cannot remember visiting the area without seeing lots of robins. I have pictures of two, but one of them is rather camouflaged. Swans are notorious for putting their heads under the water just as the shutter opens! There were lots of ducks and geese. We saw geese swimming, flying and walking.
I have picked out two photos for this week’s Photo Challenge from the Daily Post – Scale.
The first is the view of Whitehaven from the viewing gallery at the Beacon Museum on a dull day in August. Can you find the swans?
The second photo is a frog. It had jumped down from a raised flowerbed and seemed to be wondering if it could jump up 2 feet or more. The yellow spot is a leaf, which had stuck to it.
This week’s photo challenge from the Daily Post is Shine. It wasn’t the light, which caught my attention and made me grab my phone, but the swans.
However without the reflections of the clouds, the harbour-side and the various structures, the photo would not be very interesting. The swans have reflections too!
