Our natural heritage is such an important part of all our lives and one we neglect at our peril.
I am not a great distance traveller. For me I get as much wandering down a local beach as going to some foreign country. Don’t get me wrong, I love to explore new places and cultures, but I find the actual travelling stressful and like my home-comforts too much!
This is one of my favourite Mayo beaches.
I saw this hoverfly while I was talking the photo of the blossom, but imagine my surprise when I downloaded the photo and saw that I have caught it in mid-flight.
I love all the shapes, colours and textures of these densely packed shells, pebbles and sand
Bees and flowers just go hand in hand. Without one we wouldn’t have the other. Many of our wild pollinators are also vital for pollinating many of our food crops. Without them there would be no apples, strawberries, coffee, chocolate and much much more.

Butterflies are just one of many beautiful creatures that encapsulated the word “graceful”. And it is not just the bright, colourful ones either, even a simple white one looks amazing.
I love being at the beach any day but last week the light was extra special. This week’s weekly photo challenge is – ambience.
Thank you to all of you for taking time over the last year to visit my blog. I really appreciate it. Here’s to a hopeful 2017.
Hope – that you find what ever you are looking for.
Inspiration – that when you find it, you know what to do.
