The first really sharp frost of winter this morning reminded me that there are a few months of cold wet weather to come. One the the greatest treasures for me after the bleak Winter days is to see the first snowdrops of the year. They are such an affirmation of life and are often overlooked. So for this photo, I gave them pride of place.

Luckily, somewhere in the back of my mind, I remembered that a group of jellyfish were called a “Swarm”!
Sorry about the quality of the photo though!
Taken in one of the big hotels in Las Vegas, a swarm of jellyfish in a big glass jar.
Not taken this year, but I was really pleased to get the movement of the snow through the solitary street light in my village. I like snow, even though we can still get cut off for days here.

Hope that I have captured the movement in the moment 🙂
This is one of the many modern stations in Denmark. The details in the ceiling formed such strong patterns that I couldn’t resist a photo or two 😀

I am going a little bit “flora and fauna” for this challenge! 😀 I think that this Six Spot Burnet on the Sea Holly really makes a statement!
Insect shows off in Wales!

This is for the Photo101 challenge of the day..keeping up with it so far, and about half way through 🙂
Well, I am totally spoilt for choice with this challenge! Living on Exmoor , I am surrounding by glorious Nature every day. Constantly changing with the seasons, constantly amazing me with new sights and sounds.

Connect the Dots
Came out one morning to find a spider had been playing ” Connect the dots” in my front porch. The sun was in the right place to show it up against the building opposite
Last year I visited Prague for the first time. What a lovely city!
One of my impressions of the city was the wide streets ( boulevards? or is that too french?)
This photo is of a young boy clutching a balloon, happily running across the street. I have to admit that
I cropped out his parents for more of a dramatic effect!
