Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day (we still need more rain, but it is nice to enjoy the sunshine!). Crafty Green Boyfriend and I went for a walk round Arthur's Seat, one of our favourite places to walk. But first we popped into East Preston Street Cemetery, which has great views of Arthur's Seat
I noticed several spiders' webs glittering in the sunshine in the shrubbery and some of the photos even came out nicely (spiders' webs are something I find particularly difficult to capture on film)
The route continues with lovely views over Duddingston Loch.
The bramble bushes are taking on their wonderful autumnal colours
We stopped at Dunsapie Loch, where I was impressed by the reflections of the clouds in the water.
Rather than turning back at that point, we then continued on the circular path around Arthur's Seat, this is the view looking back to Dunsapie Loch.
There are lots of trees along this part of the route, and Speckled Wood Butterflies are often found here, yesterday was no exception, thanks to Crafty Green Boyfriend for this photo
We ended our walk at St Margaret's Loch
where there were a number of young Herring Gulls, including this one
I'm delighted to have an Autumnal haiku included in Haiku Seed's Blossoms here.
