- 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 :-)

At the start of July I got a lovely surprise. I was whisked off to Chester Zoo for the day. It was an amazing experience. I have managed to get 650 photos down to 21 haha! Hope you enjoy all these lovely animals. Chester Zoo is such a good day out and I found the places to eat within the Zoo did cater for vegan/vegetarian and dairy free diets.

I managed to get a good photo of this robin when I was feeding him seeds! There is a regular spot on my usual walk, a little tree stump, where other kind folk put bird seeds as well. I started giving the birds names haha! This is Robbie Robin.
I was out a shorter walk today and the heat wasn't too bad. I got a few great photos and was playing about with the settings on my phone in the camera. Then we all went shopping and I got some Hallowe'en stuff - yes Hallowe'en stuff is in a few shops already! Hallowe'en is my absolute favourite <3 I'll post my purchases soon.

I spotted this little ladybird in my back garden when I was sitting outside having a coffee. Isn't it a cutie! In the second photo it is about to take off but looks like it is about to go into battle with some other insect! This is the first year, in a while, that I have seen a lot! The past few years there haven't been many.
Today was a good bit cooler hitting 23C (73F). I went out a long walk with my friend and we got lots of photos. We were both exhausted after it! We did just over 10 miles (16km). I am hoping, despite the several coffees I've had today, that I get a good sleep haha!

This is a lovely looking Seagull but doesn't he have a serious look to him! I took this photo while I was out with my good friend Isabel. She is really into photography too and we can share our passion together.
Today it was up to 32C (89.5 F). I slept most of the morning and early afternoon, the joys of working nightshift haha! I got up and had plenty water then visited the pond to see the gang and went for a short walk. This was late afternoon and it was cooler because there was a lovely breeze! I hope it wasn't too hot where you all were. I was reading it was really bad in England and London got it really bad.

A lovely clear sky in Scotland! Which is unusual as it normally rains here! Today where I live we had maximum temperatures of 30C (86F) which is really hot for us! I visited the pond, did some shopping and stayed in the house after that with the fans on and had plenty water.

Plenty of tadpoles appeared in May. Not as many as last year but still a lot.
Then all these little fellows appeared. They have been leaving the pond over the last month or so and I actually saw a few today but they were a good bit away from the pond. Any that have been on the paths or exposed I have been putting back into the grass. They are so tiny and an easy target! I do really like frogs and think they are amazing creatures.
