Stunning sequence of images!
Nice sunset pics!
How gorgeous and breathtaking!
Fantastic photographs, every one.
Cheers all. Nobody want to have a guess at who the mystery female is?
Okay, okay... so you still get better sunsets than I do in my new place! ;-)
Yeah, but you have only been there a short while- give it time. Have you shot all those dirty starlings yet? Can't have all that nature gathering in the countryside- soon have it looking like Yorkshire again with no dragonflies, furry critters or birds around :o)
I think avian wildlife in Britain is pretty much UNpersecuted - it's the poor old mammalian wildlife which gets shot, hunted, abused and persecuted (especially my favourite and harmless herbivores) - and all for no reason. If they'd just leave everything alone, they would all sort themselves out and not bother us much! I just wish we'd leave nature alone :-(
Very true.Being serious for a moment there are times when I'm not in favour of National Parks as Loch Lomond N.P. seems to create as many problems/ rules/ regulations as it solves. Being a national park they get money to promote areas and encourage more people to visit them than would otherwise be the case then inevitably they have to police that area and lay down restrictions to stop antisocial behaviour. In some instances for wild land, beautiful but rarely visited except by locals, and not under any development threat it's the kiss of death to get picked out as special, extra car parks built and people encouraged to visit in numbers that before would have gone largely unnoticed by the majority. Also, once these organizations get a pile of money through grants, donations etc they have to spend it on some big ambitious project to justify having it-not always with great results.Sometimes it is better for certain areas which have survived for centuries in good condition, left to their own devices,- not to be 'Discovered' by anyone.
I have to say I don't understand this constant need for promotion of the outdoors and the hills etc. If people are interested, they'll find them for themselves as they always have. It just seems to encourage non-country-lovers into the countryside where they often wreak havoc. They're certainly very often noisy.
