7pm to 8pm - Colours!







A quiet wander around the garden this evening and I spotted these little moths having an evening meal.







Check out the eye-lash-like antennae on this one!




Over the bridge and back to enjoy the beautiful sunset. Lots of swallows flying around in the cooler evening air following a very hot summer's day. It was refreshing to end the daylight hours with some wonderful bright colours.

I'm thinking that the insects and small creatures in your garden are fond of your camera - it's almost like one of them has a clipboard with a booking sheet and they're all scheduling in a time amongst each other for when they're going to be on show incase that nice human comes out with her camera. Your photos of them are always so marvellously clear. Really love your first one. And don't get me started on your sunset photo - you're right, such vibrant colours & really like the movement with the swallows.

Oh how beautiful, Karen. What a wonderful evening walk you had. Love the moths, the eye-lashed one especially. And the last image, the one of sunset, is stunning. You have the most beautiful intuition where it regards taking photographs.
