On day 84 of 365 Days Wild I ventured out for a wander in the early evening light. It had been raining all day and my plan to have a walk in the rain mid-afternoon was abandoned when I opened the door to a sheet of water falling in front of me. Luckily, the rain dwindled and the sky cleared, and the sun was actually shining by the time I was out and about.
I spent a while sitting on one of the benches alongside a meadow path, simply enjoying the light and the sounds of the birds and the grasshoppers.
Not far from the bench there was a lone toadstool growing. I just had to stop and photograph it.
There were also quite a few of these Hairy Shieldbugs (Dolycoris baccarum) hiding amongst the seedheads.
I didn’t stay out until sunset, mainly because I intended to photograph the view of the sun setting over the field behind our house. Unfortunately my phone ran out of space shortly after I arrived home (yes, I really need to invest in a new phone) and there wasn’t anything else that I could delete in order to make space. Luckily, I did manage to capture a couple of interesting sky shots before this happened, even if they weren’t as colourful as sunset shots would have been.
Have you been getting out and about, or connecting with nature in any way? Why not leave a comment below and let me know what you’ve been up to?
