For day 170 of 365 Days Wild I wandered out to the meadow and pond for my daily walk. I didn’t really expect to be able to take any particularly impressive photographs. Not only was it incredibly dull, it was also very windy, meaning that my photos were likely to be lacking in clarity and rather blurry.
There have been many occasions when I haven’t felt like venturing out for a walk, but I’ve never regretted actually doing so. Even in the most unpleasant weather, there is always be something to see. Even if I take no photos at all, the fresh air and the chance to walk out in nature, surrounded by plants and with the scents of the Earth around me, is always enough to make an outing worthwhile.
On this occasion, as I walked along the edge of the dyke the sun suddenly burst through the clouds and glimmered beautifully on the water.
The cloud cover was too heavy to allow the sun to remain out for long, but I was happy with the shots that I got while it lasted.
As an added, unexpected treat, as I walked back over the meadow I spotted a lonely cowslip plant in flower. I think it might have been a little bit confused. These generally flower March-May, not in November!
I then also spotted a honey bee on a sprig of cow parsley beside the lane as I walked home.
That’s all for today. Have you been out for a nature walk recently? Why not let me know in the comments below?
P.S. My post from yesterday somehow seemed to lose half of its contents sometime after I posted it. It’s now complete again if you wanted to check it out.
