The amazing headless swan... seen here with its not-so-amazing half-grown cygnet.

Looks like I'm not the only one attracted to the gorgeous scarlet colour...

Macro of my poppy's centre - it was amazingly pretty when I went beyond the scarlet colour (which I love) and focused on the centre of the flower.


First poppy of the season in my flowerpot garden!

Lucky clover leaf, dew-fresh.

Very very close-up of one of the flowers... I really liked the silvery-pink of the stamens (I hope that's the correct botanical term).

Sparaxis - three on a stem

Same thing, in B&W - doesnt this look better?

I like the effect of the clouds here.

English Bridge by night (around 11pm), when we cycled back home after a pub crawl.

English Bridge by daylight, around 6pm, when we went cycling down the river path.

Found this friendly fish on my lawn one fine Friday (anybody have a word for "lawn" beginning with "f"?) :) Fishy here belongs to the dog next door.

Strange cloud formation? Nah... probably another jet trail - even if it seems to be vertical!

Treetops at dusk

My neighbour's roses

A Sparaxis - again, I dont know if there is a common name for it. It's a bit ragged at the edges, this flower - but I decided to take a photo anyway.

My gerbera, close-up. Hopefully I'll have a couple of other colours in the near future...

My favourite daisy - the English Gerbera. They come in such glorious, rich colours... but this one is a pale orange - still beautiful, though.

Talk about contrasts... the leisurely balloon and the jet trail left by an aeroplane.

Caught a balloon sailing serenely in the dusk (around 9.30 pm, actually)
