It was a lovely day yesterday with some lovely sunshine but to make things even better, a very angry looking sky. So of course I had to get the above shot. I loved the colour version but something about the black and white looked really striking.
He takes bread out of my hand, lets me stroke his chest (briefly), and basically gets right in my face to say hi. So many people visit the Mere but I don't think a lot really stop to say hi to the animals that make the lake their home. I hear a lot of people saying to children not to go near them, their vicious and will bite. All I can say to that really is if you treat them with respect and kindness then they'll do the same. Don't let your kids chase and scare them.
Naturally the last picture for today will be of a sleepy Buddy just before he tucked his head away under his wing.
I'm doing well at the moment with writing up posts. I've currently got about 4 or 5 saved that just need posting as and when I want to so keep your eye out for those. I'm also going back down to the Mere today to see if I can spot a new inhabitant who, from what I've heard, is quite a rare breed of duck so hopefully I can get some decent pictures to share.
