This had a somewhat sombering effect on the colours of our walk, however various shades of red seemed to glow iridescently through.
Harlequin Ladybird - a foreign species devastating the native ladybirds. At the time of taking these photos we were unaware of their unwanted status and we oohed and ahhed at their colours and how many there were..... hmmm, we know better now.
As the afternoon progressed and our walk lengthened - the clouds relented and the sky began to glow - this only had an intensifying effect on the reds and these holly berries were positively incandescent.
Sunday is a lot quieter, more home based, the weather more dull. Think this sort of day calls for homemade soup and bread :)
Hope you all had a lovely weekend
and wishing you all
a Happy Monday!
