Macro Monday

Last week I posted some photos on Wordless Wednesday which were taken on a canal walk, more specifically some close ups of small flowers growing on a canal bridge!

Well today, same idea but different with moss featuring!

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Lines

So I’m taking part in another photo challenge…this time the theme is Lines and here’s where you can find info about this challenge…

Here are my photos taken today in a beautiful beech wood in Hertfordshire (though not much sign of leaves as yet!)

I saw this tree from a little way off and knew it fitted this theme perfectly!

This year has been an amazing year for lichen and moss. All around in the countryside there are such brilliant greens-as you can see!

One side....

One side….

The other side!

A little way up the tree....

And a little way up and round the tree!

Tired Horses, Moss and a Tit with a Long Tail!

Off I went, gung ho!, with camera in hand hoping for some excitement in the wildlife section of my life!

Out of the car…

Down the track…

Look to the left and who’s this slumbering and sleeping in the corner of the field rather selfishly a little further away than I would like!

There's a song that goes...'Horsey horsey don't you stop'!Seems like these chaps haven't heard of it!

Seems like these chaps haven’t heard of it!

 

Just in case you missed horse number 3 in the background….

I think the end of the song is 'Giddy up we're homeward bound'!

What could they have been up to earlier today?

I’m sure to the horsey type this is something they have seen before, but I have never seen a horse completely crashed out with his head on the ground like the one at the back before!

"Oy!" cawed Magnus Magpie, (he is there in the front!) "Shift yourself Harvey...you're in my way!"

Must be about time for the moss….

No comments, just two photographs that I rather like….

This beautiful green is as I found it in the woods…there’s been no tinkering with photoshop etc!

As I walked on I heard a whole load of tweeting and saw this chap having a wash in a little stream.

It’s not my best photo but they move so fast that I’m pleased to have got anything!

"It's a lovely day for having a wash in a muddy stream oh yeah!" sang Lenin Longtail.

“It’s a lovely day for having a wash in a muddy stream oh yeah!” sang Lenin Longtail.

 

And then…..

"If my tail were shorter, then it wouldn't always drag in the water, but then I wouldn't live up to my 'Long Tail Tit' name....ah well!" sighed Lenin in an accepting things kind of way!
