Mini Frosted Moss


Back to my photography blog after nearly four months – two months of which were spent in England looking after my sister who has been very ill. Returning to France in early October I came down with a serious case of writer’s/photographer’s block and the creativity incentive just froze up. Fortunately the thaw has set in and this morning, spying a glorious frost outside, I set off with my camera. Here follows a few frosty pics.

Tiny mosses, so delicate and fragile.

Baby on the Window Ledge – Made My Day!


What more could you want than a visit from a baby red squirrel. We live in the woods and the squirrels visit regularly to eat the sunflower seeds and walnuts that we put out. But this is the first year that one so young has come. It really did make my day.🙂🙂

Bush-Cricket’s Supper


We have various types of Bush Cricket here in southern France, this was one (Phaneroptera nana) I discovered on a plant in the garden. He had the longest feelers in the world, and the longest legs! He seemed to find the tiny white flower petals very much to his taste, and made no attempt to move away from the camera.
