A few days after Paula and I had seen the young female Kestrel, we saw it again, perched on the overhead wires, but this time it was further away. Here are the shots I was able to get, and although some are very similar, I tried to get as many different poses as I could. It's a shame she is not perched in a tree, as it would have made more appealing photos, but like many birds of prey she preferred to survey the land from the above cable wires.

Today's post is going to be a little whimsical. Every thing about nature, becomes exciting when looked at from a different perspective. I have taken many photos to share with you, and after a while you may wonder where I am going with each one, but it's just a bit of fun which I hope you will appreciate.
My daughter Eva and I visited another park quite recently where there is a stream which flows through the beautiful landscape, and my inspiration came from looking at the way it meandered it's way over stones, and different levels of rock formations. Many of the images were in deep shade, so I had to lighten some of the them.

My first post of the year, had to include a few Robin images which I photographed a couple of weeks ago in the Fire Thorn hedge, and a few other birds and creatures I photographed last year. Christmas was a rather sad time, but we tried to make the best of it by thinking that Americo was with us in spirit. From the first of January I spent the new year preparing for a follow up exam I had to do on the forth of January, in the I.P.O, the Portuguese Institute of Oncology which is where I had surgery in the summer of 2020, and I've had follow up treatment every four months. The result was good news, and it's the best feeling to know that the tumour has not returned, and all is well.
Nature has helped me through difficult times, It's uplifting and healing, and getting back to blogging has also helped me to get through a very difficult year, and it's been a comfort to know I have friends in Blog land, who are fellow nature lovers. A big thank you to all of you who take the time to visit my blog and may 2022 bring us more peace of mind.
