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 :-)

Hawthorn Fly


This is a Hawthorn Fly. When you see them flying, their little legs kinda dangle down and it is quite funny to see. I took these last May.

A Robin In February


As the title suggests this a Robin I got a nice shot of in Feb! I find on my walk, that Robins are really friendly and it is often easy to get photos of them!

I totally forgot to do my Signs posts yesterday! I'll get one sorted for next Wednesday.

First Bee Of 2023

This is the first bee I have seen at the pond this year! It looked like it was struggling so gave it a little sugar solution. Isn't it a pretty one!

Coal Tit


This is a little bird called a Coal Tit! They are fairly common here in Scotland. Isn't it a little beauty! Took this on 25th October last year.

I was up at the pond earlier and all the frog are gone. So I will eagerly await the tadpoles and get photos of them once they appear.

A Crow Fishing


I took this on the 26th March up at the pond. I usually put some of the pellets at the edge for this crow. I found out last year he loved eating them, so have always done it. Isn't he a lovely fellow.

I am just back from the pond today and it seems the frogs and toads are done for the year! That was a good 2 weeks nearly they were spawning for.

Edinburgh Zoo Trip 1 - 15th Jan 2023

We all got annual passes to Edinburgh Zoo for Christmas. Our first visit was 15th January and here are some of the photos. Expect plenty more Zoo Posts ;-)


Saturday, 1 April 2023


Last week when I visited the pond, the frogs and toads were at it! I am hoping for lots of babies this year, as last year was bad and there weren't a lot. 

These were all taken last week. Frogspawn is a clump as in the first photo and Toad Spawn is usually in a line as seen in the second photo under the little fellow's chin!

Almost April

Hello everyone. I am still here! Been really busy with work and had a few issues with my Sinuses! Anyone else suffer Sinus issues? Any advice?

I have been out a few times this year and in the last week seen the frogs spawning. I have lots of good photos to post, which I will do. I have also a few trips to post as well. I'll get back into the swing next week.

I have also lots from last year too, that I will get around to posting.

I hope everyone is well :-)

This is one of my crow friends. I really am obsessed with crows!

Our Christmas Tree


As you all know I have 3 cats and a young daughter aged 4. So cats, kids and Christmas Trees don't really go well do they! So a few years ago, we decided to get a cat/kid proof tree and this is it. It took a while to get used to it, now I love it. I always say there is more room at the bottom for extra gifts haha! The reindeer is a new addition to the family, we got him a few weeks ago! I am not a fan of tinsel or lights.

So is everyone in the festive mood yet? I cannot say I am :-| I have been listening to a lot of Christmas music trying to get into it and watching a lot of those new Christmas films on Netflix too. I highly recommend Love Hard (2021), it really enjoyed that one.

Aren't tree roots really cool! I really like this little path. Took this on 27th October.

A Robin


This is my good friend Robbie. Robbie the Robin! He is always the first to appear when I am feeding the birds. He is a very friendly little fellow! This was taken on 25th Oct.

So I haven't been about for a few days. My daughter has been really ill and we thought she might have Strep A, which is going around at the moment over here. We finally got an appointment at out of hours care and she has a bacterial infection. They gave her antibiotics and she has been a lot better today, thankfully. The temperature tonight is sitting around minus 8! Very cold!

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.

A Happy Snail


I spotted this snail on the branch! It looked happy. I do really like the patterns on snails. Took this one on 6th May this year.

Thursday, 17 November 2022



Isn't this a beautiful bird? I really like Jackdaws, they are part of the crow family. I just love the second photo so much. His face is amazing :-D

Huge Mushroom


Isn't this mushroom lovely and it is huge! I have my hand there for scale haha! I think it is a Birch Polypore, does anyone know? I am still a novice when it comes to mushrooms! Taken 12 October.

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!
