Garden Visitors

It's about time I added another post - it's been a busy year so far but I've had time to stop and capture a couple of our garden visitors:

This is our three-legged fox who often stops in the garden - not a tame one but he's not camera-shy.

I don't ever remember seeing a dragonfly as big as this in the garden before - a real beauty.  We do have a pond somewhere amongst the overgrown trees - no wonder it had to sit and rest in its search for it.
A quick Google search says it's a male Southern Hawker...

Time Flies...

...and I bet you thought I wasn't coming back?  I wondered too.

When the end of January arrived I suddenly realised that I was about to run out of calendar - so decided to have a go at making my own.  One month done so far:

As it was a bit of an experiment with just ink pads, rubber stamps and pen, I kept it simple - now I know that it'll fit nicely on an A4 sheet I'll add a bit more to it next month - which, knowing me, I'll be doing late on 29th Feb....
