What a Coot!

Whilst out walking by a lake today I noticed several wildfowl entertaining themselves!

"Oy Callum!" shouted Cornellius from the right side of the picture(!), "How about a race?""Ok!" said Callum perhaps a little unenthusiastically!

“Ok!” said Callum perhaps a little unenthusiastically!

Cornelius set about organising Callum to the starting place….

"Righty-ho!" said Cornelius, 'I found just the spot, over here Callum!"Callum, however was not listening!

Callum, however was not listening!

Eventually Callum sauntered over trying to look cool as he had just fallen through the ice!

The race began and it has to be said that Cornelius stormed ahead!

Callum fell behind mostly due to his decision to hop rather than run!

The winner……

"You're the man....you're the man!" chanted Cornelius to his reflection in the ice!

Oh Brrr! It’s Cold!

It’s been a chilly time lately and so, of course, I have been taking icy photos.

But first, an non icy photo that I rather like of a poor baldy dandelion!

'I'm dreading the frost!" said Daniel when he realised he was as bald as a coot and the Autumn was turning rapidly into Winter.

And here’s another dandelion after a heavy frost…

Even though Dave still had some seeds attached to his head, which the frost was resting on, he was still chilled to the core!

The little toadstools in my garden also took quite a hit of frost!

Ever had ice cream headache when being a little greedy with cold puddings? I guess that's how Tina, Terry and Tessa Toadstool feel this morning!

And some moss…

Matilda Moss thanked her lucky stars that her home faced the sun. At least by 12.30pm she would have thawed out!

My last photo is a little daisy…..oooh…cold!!!

Daisy knew that it was futile to try to come out now, but she was determined to keep her head up at all costs!
