Day2Day - week 9

I am surprised and amazed at myself for continuing this day2day project for 9 weeks! It's not something I've been very good at in the past and I certainly never even considered doing any of the Flickr 365 projects. Anyway, a bit of a mixed bunch again this week so enjoy :)



Day 1 - Doris, my neighbours' cat playing hide and seek in my flower border.

Day 2 - One of my stock sites was running a Recycling theme so I wandered out to try my hand at something a bit different. Not sure it's the prettiest picture in the world but it is a familiar sight around the backyards of the UK.

Day 3 - Saw these yesterday on my way home so I took my camera with me today so I could stop and take a picture. The weather co-operated nicely too :) I think these are haws from a hawthorn but not 100% certain on that!


Day 4 - This little fella was visiting my neighbours climbing rose and just hopped into a clear space long enough for me to get a few shots off. This was the best of the bunch but with him in heavy shadow and bright background, it's not brilliant :(

Day 5 - At long last, a visit from a Tortoiseshell butterfly - I wrote about these a few posts ago - apparently their numbers have dropped almost 80% since the early 90's so not as common as they once were. If this summers visitors to my buddleia are anything to go by, I'd guess the Red Admiral is surviving mankinds destructive habits the best.
