WPC: Muses in Nature

European Goldfinch-316

Good morning from a warmer, sunnier Hastings day.

This week  from The Daily Post has asked us what inspires us.  What do we take a lot of photos of.

My muse is nature.  Yesterday I took a group of lovely ladies to Frimley Park to enjoy the sunshine and to find the last of the summer roses.  We had a fabulous time wandering around and taking photos.  I find it so hard to tear myself away from it all.  There is always that last photo you just can’t not take.  Sounds weird but I am sure everyone knows what I mean. First up I found this European Goldfinch hiding among the roses.


There were still a lot of late roses.


Mostly yellow and pink roses.


But even before we left the Heretaunga Women’s Centre I couldn’t resist taking some photos of the poppies in the frost.


And then after we had finished I had to take some more photos of the poppies in the sun.



And there were a lot of bees so I had to take photos of them too.



The other ladies haven’t done much in the way of taking photos – I took over 700 in all – I shocked them I think.

  1. Great flowers and I’m really happy to see bees. Bees are rather scarce lately. Some kind of bee crisis all over the US and I think in Europe, too. Nice that they are doing well somewhere on earth. Wonderful pictures, all of them, but the roses are special.
