Evening sunshine.....again....

This was the view from my "back door" the other night, a beautiful soft reflective light. I love evenings like this!  We've had a period of fairly settled weather of recent days, but of course it is now midge time!  Evil little blighters that bite wherever they can find access!

Here's a link to a YouTube video taken on the small island of Egilsay (one of the Orkney Islands) of some swallows over a pool catching midges.  I have plenty of swallows here AND midges - they need to eat faster!!


  1. Love reading your blog and admiring your pictures. This story made me smile, Thanks! Good luck ducking and diving away from the midgets.

  2. CC - LOL! The swallows were on my roof today having a good feast!
