Final photograph of the groins in Youghal. For the time being. Thanks to Collin and Stuart who told me what they’re called! 🙂
Ruby, a Springer Spaniel we met last year in Bunnyconnellan, is still down in Myrtleville! Her owner must be living down there somewhere. We threw a stick for her a few times and then walked over to Fennell’s Bay and she followed us with her tail wagging!
It was a pleasure walking with her only spoilt by the idiot teenage girl who threw stones at us from high ground. She and her group of friends didn’t hang around when they saw us returning back towards them. Very brave.
Last in the series of Heron shots. I took over 100 shots of this bird so I’d be certain of getting a good photo and this is my favourite despite the ugly vertical bars!
He was walking towards the bridge and I crouched down and focused on him through the bars of the bridge. I’m glad I went to the extra effort now.
A Heron pictured on the River Lee through the bars of the Christy Ring Bridge, Cork. He waded through the water looking for food in the river bed but except for the occasional rock didn’t have much luck in finding his dinner.
This is the second of three photos in this series.
A Heron pictured on the River Lee through the bars of the Christy Ring Bridge, Cork. Moments before I got close enough, two other herons flew away down the river.
Despite the rubbish and trolleys in the river it’s a great sign to see wild life again.
This is the first of three photos which I will post over the next few days.
Urban ducks and wild fowl are luckier than their country brethren. People think they are cute and feed them!
This is the same duck I posted before at the Crown Fountains, Chicago.
Second of the Crown Fountains in Millenium Park, Chicago.
The tent in the background covered The Bean and wasn’t due to be removed for a few weeks.
This is one of the Crown Fountains in Millennium Park, Chicago. The red glow in this photo is from that large image! It’s actually a video, the person pictured smiles and changes expression every few seconds, and the face changes on a regular basis.
I didn’t know this was here at all, but it made up for the fact that The Bean was closed for renovation when we visited. I was really looking forward to that. We’ll have to visit Chicago again!
A duck in Millenium Park, Chicago last May. Bet you’re wondering what is casting that red glow on the water? All will be revealed on Monday after I post a cute picture of it’s mate!
A beautiful sunset moments before the red sky pictured earlier!
Red sky after a beautiful sunset in Garrettstown last Sunday.
The original high-res version is even better!
