I have loads more Bruiser :-))) here they come
Joy the blossom trees are everywhere, ornamental flowering cherry mostly no one could tell me exactly. Even in the less attractive areas, like industrial sites these trees are everywhere loaded with blossoms. One thing I missed getting photos of were as the leaves start to come out the flowers start to die off, and there is a huge carpet of petals all around the tree, almost as good to see as on the trees.
You are so right, I wanted to shoot everything. I was becoming unpopular at one point as I was always being waited for, I kept thinking just one more shot that's all or I will be sorry tomorrow I hadn't:-)))). I had to run to catch everyone up all the time.
The Mother duck was sitting on a little island of stone and debris soaking up the sun , she shuffled a bit and suddenly all these little babies came waddling out. It was so cute to see. They scuppered around for a few mins looking for food and then slowly all went back under the wing.
The swans were out in force. I have never seen so many swans in London before this visit. I kept trying to get a shot of two of them making the "heart" with their heads! I think you know what I mean, but was always too slow.
Yes thank goodness for large memory cards. But you know what I forgot my usb cable to download , so had to by a card reader as the cables were so pricey to buy, anyhow, thought I was sorted out. Only to find when we left for the Lake District. I left the reader behind too
lucky I didnt leave the camera behind, so now I have two card readers.
