Look at these photos - I am not worthy

They can be very sinister. This one was actually begging because we had been throwing fish for the birds so we could get shots of them "fishing".

For me the hare.  Very nice capture.  The blackbird has some pretty heavy PP though, minus the post processing I think most of us could have managed to capture one like it.  Thanks for sharing Colin.

+1 for the crocodile in the mud, brilliant. Bit short on crocodiles around here, I wonder if I could get a toad to cooperate.

The hare transports me to a magical world or storybook. I also love the panicked geese and the school of mackerel blown up wide on my screen. All those eyes!

Some amazing photographs in there.

 

The croc one is great.

I am always fearful of crocs when going fishing.

But like gvallee I have a few in my portfolio, it comes with living in North Australia I suppose...

Thanks for sharing @Colin Woods- it got me clicking on other photos comps there - check out especially the dragonfly in the UK National Parks winners - amazing:

Sure makes me long for the old uncrowded outdoors. Wonderful images - thanks again for bringing a little joy into our days Colin!

The dragonfly is excellent but I have so many fond memories of Wistman's Wood. I lived not far from Dartmoor before I moved to Quebec and we were frequent visitors to Wistmans.

Those gnarled trees in Wistman's Wood do look magical!

They are. In fact if ever your travels take you to the UK then the South West (Cornwall, Devon and Somerset) is a superb region - sandy beaches, dramatic cliffs, woods, hills and lovely towns and villages. I lived there for 15 years and if I had not moved to Quebec I would be there still.

Not for a few years no, but I liked it as a kid...

Thank you, but I really believe that when it comes to crocs, there are some much better images out there.

Have been to London (in 1974 and 1980) and Edinburgh (2007), but not to the English countryside yet - it has always been on my bucket list. God-willing I'll still get there some day. Since reading my first romance novel as a tween - maybe Daphne Du Maurier, Emily Bronte? - I've wanted to wander the moors. A photographer friend has been sharing photos of Cornwall the past few years and I've been trying to get my husband to take some time from work for a trip to the British countryside ... something to look forward to & dream about when this plague ends. Wherever they filmed Sandringham also looks lovely....I'm a bit of an Anglophile. I'd be lost without all those period dramas and murder mysteries on BBC America during this lockdown. Cliffs, castles, moors, and those charming villages. A girl can dream...

 

Have been to Montreal twice too, as a kid and again in my 40's - a lovely place and one I'd like to get back to. 

 

My daughter and grandson would have been here this week en route to spending a month in Europe, visiting our family in Italy and Spain, and my son-in-law's in Germany and Poland. Can't wait for a time when we can travel safely again, but I'm betting it's going to be a long wait.

For 'The Crown'? Englefield House apparently, just outside Reading.

LOL Sandringham sounded right but I actually meant Sandition, it was a recent PBS Masterpiece miniseries loosely based on Jane Austin's unfinished novel. But thanks for the link. The Crown is a wonderful series. I can't believe I haven't watched Netflix at all during this plague.
