    It's gorgeous that time in the morning. Has to be before 6.30am though, that's when the human race gets about ;)

    Lovely pics!

    I tried to get some of Jack today as he paddled in the sea, but OH kept pressing the wrong button, so when I checked to see what he had took - it was NOTHING! ;)

    Lovely photos!

    Are the cows belted Galloways?

    And is the snail a Roman snail?

    Yes to both questions :D

    It's actually the first live Snail I've seen for some years. I know they are still there because I've seen empty shells but I don't think many live ones :(

    We have Roman snails in the village, but only in one half of the village. The village is very linear along a valley and stretches to a bit over a mile with scattered houses here and there with some areas of more denser housing. It's set in an area of high Roman occupation at one point which is why the snails are here, but they are only in a certain area and don't seem to have spread any further which is curious. Consequently we don't have them, but they are a quarter of a mile away down the road in good numbers. Fauna, flora, geography and geology the same.

    Took the camera on my early morning walk yesterday and took this
    [​IMG]

    Then the battery died :(

    Stupid design means that sometimes when you put the camera away, the playback button gets pressed, it doesn't have a shut off like the lens and therefore the battery runs flat :rolleyes:
