Blue bug on a rose bush

We were looking at the roses along Wellesley road and found this bug. I thought the colour was so cool.

The common (not so boring) frog

Gardening admist the fragrant tapestry of lavender, a common frog jumped right under.
Common in name and number, but not in awe and wonder.
360 million years on Earth, it can breathe through lungs and skin.
With porous epidermis, oxygen diffuses in.
Ranging in colour – from greys and greens, to yellows and brown.
Keep an eye out for it when Spring comes to town.

I’m immersing my hand into my boundless memories, and a familiar street strikes my soul. A street that surely has a counterpart all around the world. A bicycle will definitely pass through the street sprinkled with pink; further enhancing the meaning of this scene.

Blue Heron

I spotted this beautiful heron on a foggy morning, I love the blue/grey contrasted against the soft foggy light in the background. It was an amazing and inspiring morning to be out and feel completely alive in the park.

Chiswick Riverside

Chiswick has a lot of nature near the river Thames and by looking at this photo you’ll not believe that it’s actually taken in Chiswick. I love the clouds and the tree in this photo overlooking the river Thames.

Blue dragonfly on flower

While looking for birds to photograph at Chiswick House and Gardens, I spotted some blue dragonflies drinking the nectar from a flowering bush. They moved around very quickly but I was lucky enough to catch one staying still, allowing me to take this closeup photo. Bees often get the spotlight for their importance for pollinating flowers, but insects like these are very important to the process as well!
