Another Walk

I know from comments that some of my readers like to see images from my walks so here is a batch from another recent walk

More riders from the local Riding Stables below. 
They have quite a wide variety of rides in the area, which I would think is really good if you like that pursuit. 
I will stick to walking and cycling I think. The last time I rode a horse which was many years ago, the stirrups were too long, I won't enlarge on that subject.{:))
The Instructor kept saying "Up down", "Up down", "Up down". 
Yeah right!


Reflections


An immature Robin perched in the sunshine.






Black-headed Gull


Common Fleabane - not a great name for a flower.


Joe Crow that thinks he may be a Magpie.
Its not unusual to see Crows with some white feathers.


Large White Butterfly


Common Blue Butterfly






Wild Oats mixed in with other foliage always make an attractive scene I think.


More Reflections


Acorns in good shape.


Willowherb 


Blackberries are ripening.


Cow Parsley seeding.


A Hawkweed I think.

  1. A nice series of photos. Today, alas, doesn't seem as if it's going to be a walking day.

  2. I've always thought it must be nice to be on horse back and look over hedges but when they pass me in the village I think; that looks a long way to fall and I don't bounce as well as I used to.

  9. Hey Roy... I love the water reflection shot's, and the flowers with the water in the back ground....hmmm I wonder if that is because I would love to be in a lake swimming,and floating around. It is 95 degrees and sultry with bad air quality alerts here. It will be like this for the rest of the week.

    I love blackberries. Do you ever grab a few and pop them in your mouth? :} I would !!!

    I have never been on a horse, not my idea of a fun ride. ;}

    Beautiful walk !!!

  10. I did horse riding when I was a teenager but I fell off twice so I gave it up. Lovely selection of pictures, I like the reflection ones and the wild oats does make a nice picture.

  11. I love horse riding, but don't get to do it often and yes you can see so much from the back of a horse, but taking photos would be challenging! It was great to see your walk in images. I thought the photo after the Robin looked like a giant spider coming out of the water!

    1. Thanks Suzie, yes that reed sticking up out of the water did look unusual.
