For Brian’s Last on the Card challenge this month we have a juvenile Herring Gull…

…It had been playing with the water bottle on the path but as we approached it stepped back behind the rope fence. It then started pulling at the rope, so I took some shots of it playing. This was the last one and I think we’d both had enough of the game by then – I was probably already mentally taking the camera away from my eye as it has camera shake πŸ˜‰ Taken at Kew Gardens with the Fujifilm X-Pro2 on 21/09

Last shot on the Canon 5D mkIII was taken at Bromley FC’s ground where we had just completed a 5-3 win over Cray Wanderers. It shows a group of our players approaching the fans…

…Shared congratulations is good for morale πŸ™‚ Photo taken 29/09.

Missed out on taking part in CMMC recently – blame the Wyoming release in American Truck Simulator. At least there’s a O in the middle of Wyoming πŸ˜‰

Lets start with a herb – a very poisonous herb…

…Monkshood (Aconitum napellus). The root can be boiled and made into a tincture for external use to combat joint pain. Otherwise, it’s just a pretty garden flower but wash your hands carefully after handling it!

Football – Here are some members of our Youth academy watching a 1st Team match…

Here’s a tree in miniature…

…An example of Bonsai

Finally, sitting on my fence and hoping for more food…

…A Wood Pigeon.

All the photographs in this post were taken over the past week πŸ™‚

Black against dark sky
Herald stands tall
Greeting Morningstar
Song praising the dawn
Proclaiming his presence
For all to hear
This land is my land
The message is clear!
