Plant, Wildlife and Landscape Photography

Simply photographs,, one a day when worthwhile, with a brief comment – plus (usually) something from my archives to spice up “Memory Sundays”. Most pictures are of botanical, wildlife and landscape subjects. This is not a business. I rarely try to sell images but am always open to offers – and please read the copyright notice at the foot of the page..

European Hornet

NOT a “Murder Hornet”

Nor is it a locally found insect. There have been lots of scary photos in the press in recent weeks of giant, orange “murder hornets” appearing out Vancouver-way. This is not one of those (which anyway spend their time murdering hive bees rather than bee keepers and their friends) but it is a similar looking, but half size, version from central Europe. In this case enjoyed in eastern Austria.

Berries in Winter

Dark-eyed Junco

A raptor overflew the garden and suddenly there were dozens of small birds sheltering in the Viburnum bush near the house, hanging off the branches like Xmas ornaments. While waiting until it was safe to come out, this Junco found a berry to snack on.

Why we are not tidy

Feeding the Birds

There is a growing awareness (still a long way to go) that tidying the garden as we go into winter is a bad thing to do. Leaving our garden “scruffy” until spring means that birds like these American Goldfinches can find something to eat without needing to rely on our feeders.

These birds were eating seeds from a small-flowered form of sunflower.

American Red Squirrel

This fellow has recently set up winter quarters on the northern side of our garden where there are trees and dense shrubs – he spends a lot of time energetically evicting the more relaxed greys.
