a coal tit rips through elm fruits looking for insects.....

gnats above the river - a chaffinch behaves like a flycatcher

along the Water of Leith

and wow, on the way home, a swallow swoops in front of me as I cross a city centre car park!

I saw a mama wood duck and six babies today. It made me think of you. :)

Nature is so grand. I like to see how you identify the plants. I am working on this around My Muskoka. Making progress, too!

I like the links you included in your lovely post.

We seeing swallows swooping at dusk, over the lake, catching dragonflies. Aren't we lucky to witness such things!?
