Walking back from the shops today Finlay and I decided to count how many different types of birds we could spot. Making our way along a fairly busy road, we initially saw jackdaws and gulls (black headed, lesser black-backed and herring gulls). But looking up, my attention was caught by something else.
The dappled light falling through leaves, and the shapes and shadows cast by the branches of a beautiful tree. I had to stop to photograph it. As we continued our journey, I kept gazing up at the tall trees and admiring what I could see.
But while I was looking up, Finlay was looking down. He spotted a tiny ladybird in the grass, so small I could barely see it.
A reminder that small can be as wonderful as tall.
