Dandelion seed heads always remind me of a tight concentration of stars.

I had a pharmacist appointment this morning. As I passed their nest Grack was sat on it with Grock fast asleep nearby. When I returned he had woken up and moved on to the river. Just after I took this shot he took off with his wings slapping the water and headed upstream.

I didn't know any of that until I took up photography about 10 years ago. It's more educational that you realise at first.

There was quite a bit of rain overnight (best time for it, in my opinion) and it left quite a few puddles on Riverside Walk. Didn't detract from the pleasure of the walk one little bit. I saw a seal again too, or rather the nose of a seal as it took a few moments to grab a breath before diving again.
