I always have my eyes open to what I might see (and my ears open too!). It's an important habit both as a naturalist and as a writer.
Today I took a photo of this wasp (I can't identify wasps to species level except for the common wasp and this isn't a common wasp, so if anyone can offer an ID that would be great!)
great northern divers all swimming together really close to shore! This is unusual on these coasts! (No photos, sorry!).
The water was beautiful today
eider ducks as far as the eye could see!
