About Me

My photo
I'm a simple Scottish girl with an unusual name and a strange obsession for nail polish! My aim is to capture what the eye sees, with a camera! Too much nail polish and never enough time. I have also started wildlife photography, which I enjoy very much. Welcome to my little world :-)

2 Snails

 



I am not exactly sure what these 2 snails are up to! I took these on 10th May this year.

Hope you are all having a good December so far. Sorry I haven't visited your blogs lately, been mega busy!

A Wasp

 


I know a lot of people don't like wasps here in Scotland but I do. This wasp spent the whole summer on this piece of wood, which is a craving of animals and wildlife. I walked passed almost everyday and it was there! I have been stung by both a bee and wasp and I am not allergic to either. On both occasions it wasn't either the bee or wasp's fault! Wasps play an important part in nature. This photo was taken 26th April this year.

I have lots of photos to transfer so will do that in the next few days and start posting them. I hope you are all well and happy December!

My Favourite Crow

 


This has to be my all time favourite photo of a crow so far. I took this on 5th May this year. I just love his face. I was feeding him and his buddies regularly during the summer at the pond. I was very fond of him, he was more outgoing than his buddies.

Got out yesterday and today. Got some good photos that I will need to tranfer onto the PC.

A Springy Tree

 


This was taken on my older phone: HUAWEI P20 Pro. Date:  19 April 2021.

I have often wondered how this spring got into this tree? Maybe it grew there haha! 

Hope everyone is well and you are all have being having a good November. Weather has been really bad here in Scotland, always raining. So haven't really had much chance to get out walking. Shorter days don't help either! And started another job, so have 2 part-times jobs! No time for anything these days.

Lovely Trees By The Canal

 


I took this on 13th October. It was a lovely day and a good view of the trees along the canal. I like to walk along the canal, so many interesting things to see.

I hope you are all well. I have been exhausted, busy and not had a lot of time!

Webby

 


How awesome does this web look! I like seeing webs and think spiders are really cool! I doubt I'd be saying that if I lived in a warmer climate mind you haha! Took this a few weeks ago!

A Shy Squirrel

 


I spotted this squirrel hiding in the trees. He was very shy. I only see grey squirrels these days, never red anymore. I think the last red one I saw was in the mid 1990s! 

Hope you are all well.

Photos From My Walk Yesterday - 18th Oct 2022

 






These are all photos from my walk yesterday! It was a good walk. My friend and I went into the forest and explored all around. We found so many interesting things. AND it was a decent day, sunny and no rain! 

I was waiting for my delivery of cat food to arrive today. It arrived early afternoon, so managed out for a short walk which was good.

Purple Bee

 


This bee was very happy on this purple flower. I like how vivd the yellow on the bee is! This was taken on 31st August.

First post in a few days. was exhasuted with work over the weekend. Has anyone noticed that comments from the past are jumping into the spam folder? I noticed some on all 3 blogs from end of September and one tonight from early October! Some are my own replies and other Bloggers. I always check the spam comments when I first log into Blogger these days!

Shaggy Inkcap

 


These 2 photos are the same mushroom, but at different stages! It is called a Shaggy Inkcap and from what I have read, it is edible! I only took photos and left it be haha!

Been out 4 days in a row and have to say the prolapse is a lot better - not giving me any pain or issues like before when I was rested after the eye op! So all good. Tomorrow they say rain, I really am hoping to get out. We will see!

Busy Flower

 


Well isn't this a busy little flower! This was taken on 5th September.

Got out again today and another 10 miles! It did rain and I got wet haha. My plan is to get out the rest of the week too and aiming for 10 miles each day. I feel fit enough and my eye is so much better. I honestly think missing the walking had a major negative impact on the prolapse. 

RIP Angela Lansbury who sadly passed away today. Loved her in Murder, She Wrote.

I Hope He Did

 

This was taken on my older phone: HUAWEI P20 Pro. Date: 19th July 2021.

I saw this last year and thought it was so cute! I really hope he did ask her out <3

So today was a good day! I got out and did 10 miles and got lots of photos. I need to transfer them from the phone to the laptop. It was sunny but chilly. The first day in over a week it wasn't raining! I am hoping it will be dry tomorrow. I felt so much better getting out too. Hope you are all well and have a good week planned.

A Woodlouse On My Arm

 


This little fellow was in the bathroom and I worried the cats might get to him, so decided to put him out in the garden. By the time I walked to the back door to open it, he had crawled up my arm!! So I decided to get a photo....as you do ;-) This was taken on 7th September. Interesting fact - here in Scotland we often call Woodlice: Slaters.

So in other news, I managed to get out for a walk! I was so happy. Didn't over do it. It will probably take me a few weeks to get back into the swing of things.

These are all from 22nd February 2021.

 




These were all taken on my older phone: HUAWEI P20 Pro.

So back in time we go! A year and half in fact! The little green fellow who is starring in a few of the photos is Trevor. He is a turtle and we adopted him from London Zoo. I named him after a famous British actor called Trevor Eve!
