Beautiful Nature Photos.

Everytime I read about a cruel act, be it animals, children etc, I always think to myself, why doesn't the punishment match the crime, then maybe the perps would think twice about it.

It can't match the crime KJ because the bleeding heart liberals did away with the death penalty some time ago.  Sorry if that sounds political it isn't meant to be.  ;)

Watched a peacock doing his mating stomp in Sri Lanka a few years ago. It was really quite impressive as he jumped up and down on-the-spot with his head bobbing and feathers held out as in your photo.

A few shots from Faraid Head, Sutherland, taken on Thursday.  These are all wildflowers and are currently in full bloom. Photography was diffcult because of a strong wind that was blowing the flowers around; hence just a few photos.  The first photo is "The Machair" That's the stable bit behind sand dunes". Second and third are Harebells and teh fourth is Knapweed:

A couple of days ago. There are actually at least four cygnets, but they wouldn't all look at the camera at the same time.

Still surprises me how there was nothing at all yesterday evening, then they all appear fully formed next morning.

Plenty of ducklings and young geese around at Attenborough Nature Reserve this lunchtime, but I didn't see any cygnets unfortunately.

Hoards of little black midges though !
