How often do you go out with your gear with a specific style, subject area or topic in mind?
I have a favourite area for birds, wildlife, nature and it's quite secluded and quiet to most of the humans in this area, which is nice, although, recently, due to our current circumstances I guess, it has grown slowly busier, not always for the good.
I set out a week or two ago, with my macro lens fitted because there are lots of beautiful plants or weeds around and I like to get in close now and again.
Hedge bindweed is a rhizomatous and stoloniferous perennial with long climbing stems that clamber up and over hedges. It is often a weed of gardens where it climbs over fruit trees, vegetable crops and herbaceous plants. It twines anti-clockwise. Three subspecies are recognised in Britain.
A whatmatous? Anyway, it's a beautiful flower, with beautiful shapes and designs
So, with lots of Bindweed around, still fairly early so, nice dewdrops and light, I set about grabbing shots, looking for something ...... interesting? Different?
So, it's only after looking at the back of the camera that I spotted a little added bonus on this one.
I find shield bugs fascinating, I've only seen a few and been lucky enough to spot a few young ones now and again.
So a happy chappy but, I really must carry the tripod, take more time .....
Still had the most pleasant hour or two, or three? Drifting around a silent green space, surrounded by nature.
More to follow from this same morning on Penrhos Yard
