Summer Yellows and a Bold Mistle Thrush



It's a beautiful day today and the buttercup meadows are yellow in the Dells alongside the Water of Leith 


The laburnums are too! In fact I've never seen the laburnums look more beautiful than they do this year.

This mistle thrush was busy collecting food for its brood and was entirely fearless in running towards us

It was also a great day for insects, lovely to see so many orange tip butterflies

plenty of hoverflies too, including this Helophilus pendulus

and bumble bees too, including this early bumble bee, looking slightly inelegant in flight


Thanks to Crafty Green Boyfriend for the photos of the thrush and the insects.
