    I've had a good day today. Went on a lovely walk where I bumped into a lady walking 4 of a breed of dog that I think is delightful and I haven't seen for a very very long time........Dandie Dinmonts :)

    My Floxgloves are out in flower and what I thought was the icing on the cake, I have had a couple of Damsels mating in my garden pond. I've never seen any here before. Grabbed the camera and took a few (dozen) photos. Then while looking through them came across this surprise.

    I'm a bit chuffed with that even though I didn't know I'd taken it :)

    Once upon a time I took my camera everywhere with me - took these in a friend's garden back in 2003 but they're still amongst my favourites

    and this very inquisitive fox cub was in my Mum's back garden in 2010

    and this squirrel very gently took nuts from my hand in our local park in 2007

    Yes she did ! The vixen lived in an abandoned garage behind my Mum's garden and used to bring her cubs to "visit" every year :)
