Self satisfied or what?
The cockerel that is..... I never got round to naming him, he's just "The Cockerel" or I greet him a "Hallo mate!" - but I'm sure he's strutting about with his chest puffed out even more lately with so many chicks around! And three more hen are still to emerge so there may be MORE chicks to come.... As you can see he loves sunbathing but hasn't the decency to pick up a trowel and help with a little light gardening!
The weather has been particularly settled these last two weeks. Very little rain, lots of sun and no wind. Bliss! Farmers are out cutting hay or silage, lambing and calving are well and truly over, and all the livestock are out in the fields again. I love this time of year!
And of course sunset is still about 10.15pm and it's light way beyond that. The photo below was taken about 11.20pm without a flash!
And again we have had some beautiful sunset - a couple of photos below..... sorry if I'm boring you! And yes they are usually taken from the same spot - outside my back door! Sorry, but I'm a lazy photographer....
