Watchful Magpie

Patiently perched in a nearby tree close to where I was fishing this magpie was staring across the lake and stayed dead still for ages.
I tried to see if I could see what he was looking at but my eyes are not as good as his and I couldn't see anything.
Whatever it was must have moved on because after about ten minutes of staring the magpie flew away in the opposite direction.

Early Morning Visit from a European Robin

Early one morning at the start of the autumn season the robin made a visit to my backyard. It was unusually warm for this time of year and there was plenty of insects about for him to feast on.

European Robin

Coming towards the end of summer the ground is looking a bit sparse.
The Robin is in search of something to eat and can easily pick off any insects that are travelling across the open ground in search of shelter.

Symmetry in Nature

Symmetry can be found in nature on almost every every plant and makes a good subject to highlight in your nature photography. 
,Here's some macro shots of the plants growing on the bank of a local fishing venue.

Next time you are out with your camera take time to notice the symmetrical features of the plants.

Pollen Hunt

On a recent fishing trip the fish had abandoned me and my offerings of bait and dedcided to dine elsewhere. 
With nothing to do as far as fishing was concerned I got my camera out.
Here's a bee hovering around some nearby flowers in search of pollen.
