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 :-)

Curious Crow


I spotted this crow up a tree. I was looking at him and this is how he was looking back at me. I told him I am a friendly and happy to feed him! What a lovely face he has. Crows are such amazing creatures and so intelligent :-)

This is a Nuthatch. They are fairly new to Scotland and are really common in my area. This one was happy to eat the seed I put down!

Baby Coots

As promised here are some photos of the baby coots! Taken between 12 June and 15 June 2022.

You can see all 3 of them in the middle photo. From what I have seen, the 2 always stay close to the parent. I make sure I have plenty pellets for them and the ducks and the crows. I always have enough to go around. They are very keen on the pellets I feed them. The parent usually picks up a few at a time and gives them to the babies. The babies will soon be able to get them on their own!

Coot babies are very cute and they have a red and yellow head. They will soon develop the white bit that the older coots have.

This is a little ladybird. We call them ladybirds here in Scotland. I know in some places they are called ladybugs instead! This was on my kid's toy trolley outside!

This is a coot, I think it is the male. He is part of a pair that live at the pond I visit. They have been there for a few years now and I noticed a few days ago, they have had at least 3 babies. But I cannot get any good photos, I will keep trying! Coots have such funny feets I think. These feet help them in the water and on land, making this bird quite versatile.

We were walking along the beach and I noticed this seashell! It was certainly out of place haha!

Saving Bees


This is a little bee that I managed to save. It had run out of steam. I carry around a sugar solution and I sprayed it onto my hand and lifted the bee up carefully. The bee happily fed on it and after I took this photo it flew away and had more energy. 

The sugar solution is white sugar mixed with water. Plenty sugar to minimal water. That should give them enough energy to fly to safety. I have no fears or concerns about holding a bee, I have been doing this for 2 years now and never had any issues. It is a nice feeling to hold a bee and an amazing feeling to know that I have saved it :-)

6 Little Ducklings

It is no secret that I am obsessed with ducks. I just love everything about them. At the pond there has been a set of 6 babies. The following photos are over the space of 3 to 4 weeks. You can see them getting bigger as time goes on, it is really amazing. I have more photos and will post updates on them. Enjoy the cuteness!!!
