Some pics of Snowdrops taken today at Kinwarton, near St Mary the Virgin church. Kinwarton is a little Hamlet, just on the edge of Alcester. Probably best known for its 14th century dovecote which is owned by the national trust.

Pic of a Coot on the River Avon at Stratford upon Avon. More of a record shot really, as I prefer shots showing more of the environment, but the light was quite nice for recording some detail in the black feathers.

Pigeon post

Or a post about a pigeon!. This Wood pigeon was actually photographed the same day as the Squirrels in the last post, but I have been unsure whether to post this or not. The thing is there wasn't anything remotely challenging about taking this pic, in fact I could have probably have reached out and touched this Pigeon, it was being so docile. But having looked at them again I do like the colouring, especially the iridescent green on the neck. Maybe it is too easy to overlook the commonplace, instead of fully appreciating what we are seeing.
