    There's evidence to suggest that I am tripping out. I could have swore there was a few rascal magpies here. asking around about me.

    I've been around the block a few times seen many a snail outside on the wall. I've fed daddy long legs to spiders in my garden. Fought with wasps and stingy nettles. Been grazed.. and stung oooch not to mention the fish. But nature is ruler always.
    Thanks for some nice pictures everyone. I've enjoyed recently and wish I could share some of my own. But if its alright i'll just check these out and like what I see.
    All the best

    Was strolling and chatting with Mrs AMR this afternoon in a forest in the Mournes. After a wee while, I was aware Mrs AMR was no longer there. Looked back and there she was standing about 10 yards away beside a tree staring like a wee pointer. She had spotted this wee fella....

    Thanks all for nice welcoming:50:

    These aren't my own. But I feel as though these fish are a part of my life. When I caught them I studied them.

    The Stickleback was very common in my local stream.

    Wellies and a bucket was all I had. We would follow the brook into other parts of town

    Robins seem friendly and come back to the same spots seasonal. Or their offspring do maybe.

    I have had a few wee chums keep me company in the garden over the years, RJT and some of them have been wee teenagers that hadn't developed their full colours.

    Quit the old "women together" nonsense. I had obviously seen it too but was zig zagging behind the tree like a stealth bomber to avoid detection before pouncing. :fear: In fairness, she's brilliant at spotting them. She's the eyes of a child, takes everything in.

    Thanks Johnie the canal is just behind me and my tenement neighbours garden, lot's of tree's so the most common are magpies and squirrels who raid our bins and I've watched them they work together so clever :)
