LOW LEVEL WALKING IN THE CAIRNGORMS
Small Red Damselfly

Orange Tip (female)
A wet weather forecast for much of the day so we decided on a easy , low level walk from the house today. It was actually a lovely afternoon with some nice bright spells and only the odd, brief shower. You don't need to walk very far from the hustle and bustle of Aviemore high street to get into some beautiful countryside. Just an hour or so walk from the house we have a wonderful pair of Osprey which I have been observing for a number of years. One day I may even get a nice sharp image! Nice to see so many butterflies and dragonflies darting about in the sun. Spring is a great time to get out with the camera, wherever you may live.
