Day #1088

Day #1088Title: Winter Feeder
Location: Wivenhoe
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 100-400mm EF f/4.5-5.6 L IS
Notes: I spent a very enjoyable half hour this morning watching the birds have their breakfast at my parents’ house. They have a little window next to the stairs which looks out over the back garden and is the perfect spot for watching our feathered friends at the bird table and feeders. I was particularly pleased with this shot of a Great Tit, (Parus major).

Day #1071Title: No Weather For Spiders
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 60mm EF-S f/2.8 USM
Notes: I’ve photographed the spider’s web on my bin before on Day #711. This morning, it was looking particularly lovely with tiny ice crystals all over the strands. Freezing fog is good for something…

Day #1025Title: Growing Companions
Location: Galleywood Common
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 60mm EF-S f/2.8 USM
Notes: I went on a little fungus hunt this afternoon and found quite a few interesting specimens. This Fly Agaric was by the side of the road, with another little bit of vegetation using it as a climbing frame.

Day #1015

Day #1015Title: Dead Wood
Location: Mundon, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: With such a gorgeous blue-sky afternoon, I could not resist a trip out for some pictures. I thought I would finally go to see the petrified oaks at Mundon, as I’ve been meaning to visit them for ages. I did the conversion with Silver Efex Pro, which I was reminded to try a few days ago. Looks great, but quite pricey.

Day #1013Title: Pink Tips
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 60mm EF-S f/2.8 USM
Notes: I finally pulled my finger out and did some gardening today. The grass was in desperate need of a trim again. These pretty pink flowers are blooming on a succulent I have growing in one border – I’m afraid I have no idea what it’s called though.
