Gentians and Other Autumn Colours in the Botanics

We had a lovely walk round Edinburgh Botanic Gardens today. The autumn colours are wonderful

and these gentians are beautiful

This squirrel seemed to be stocking up for the winter ahead

while this robin took the lazy option and visited the cafe garden keeping an eye out for leftovers and crumbs

We enjoyed watching this nuthatch try to dig some insect out of the tree bark, though the twigs mean that we couldn't get a good photo

Still some insects about too including this late season red admiral
