I was walking in Chiswick Park and then I noticed something unusual, which was that there were two huge snails stuck together. Everyone knows snails are usually tiny and unsocial, and this was the exact opposite so I decided to take a photo of it.

Little beauty in red

I met this beautiful ladybird at “Chiswick House and Gardens” … one of my favourite place from Chiswick!

Just Chillin’

There are always plenty of squirrels scurrying around – this one caught my eye because of the beautiful colour scape created by the squirrel and the sun pouring through the leaves of the tree. I was amazed it stayed still for long enough for me to capture it, but I guess it was quite happy just chilling on his branch!
