My Sunday Photo: 6 December 2015

Hibe in DecemberJust recently, the prevailing weather has been unusually mild (but catastrophic in some parts of the U.K. due to flooding!)
Here, this has allowed a few flowers to continue to bloom. This hebe is one example – a cheering sight on a grey, dull day.

Tiny LeavesLooking for something colourful today, I found these tiny leaves, autumnal and yet uplifting, with their stunning combination of shape and line, together with vivid colour. They are only small – this is, once again, a macro shot. It’s all about using these… [author points to eyes]

A Wet AutumnI found this only today (Sunday.) I didn’t have any very interesting photos this week, owing to pressure of work, and was wondering what to post! This seemed to shout “A mild, wet autumn day” so effectively. (By the way, I didn’t rearrange those leaves – that’s how they were!)

Stick InsectLast Monday, thanks to my local photographic society, I had the chance to photograph some amazing insects. This is one of them – a type of stick insect. For the most part, they only moved slowly; it was in some cases quite hard to tell which bit of what I saw, as I viewed each arrangement that had been set up for us, was, in fact, the insect!

Poppies - 15 October 2015I spotted this poignant scene yesterday afternoon, in a churchyard; yes, that’s a war memorial in the background. Artificial flowers in vases nearby looked cheap and tawdry in comparison. These real flowers, together with seed-heads, were themselves a reminder that memory is organic; poppies die, but more will come again. Those who died in battle will not be forgotten.

Yew Berries October 2015Venturing outside today I came across these very pretty but highly poisonous berries that remind us that the back end of the year has come round again! The leaves and stems of the yew plant are also poisonous. however, some birds eat the berries, the poisonous seed passing through them intact!
