This gorgeous little hedgehog is a first time visitor to my garden. Being a nocturnal animal I only see him at night when it's just getting dark. I looked aout the window a wee minute ago and saw him foraging for food so I took out some cat food and left him eating it. He seems quite tame and doesn't curl up when I come close as they usually do. I've bought him a hedgehog igloo and put it under the trees in the hope that he hibernates there in the winter.
I purposely put out food for the crows. For one thing they are very hungry and also I really love them. I'm happy to say I haven't seen them attack a sparrow. But everything has to eat and some of the food I put out for the crows is immediately swooped upon and greedily eaten by the seagulls. Everything strives to survive.
This little bundle of feathered sweetness couldn't stay awake after feeding. In full view of the camera too.
Robbie is being fostered by my daughter, Victoria, until he is rehomed. He's old but quite full of energy and loves looking out the window as the flat is on the second floor. He has a panoramic view of the harbour and beyond to Trondra. I don't suppose he appreciates it, though.
Poppy? Well she just pokes her head through the fence to say hello to passing photographers. Cheery little thing.
Found this beautiful moth sitting on a coping stone in the garden. It stayed perfectly still while I shot it in macro. Sometimes you don't realise how detailed they are until up close.
I hope you like what I bring here from the Shetland Islands. It will not only be landscapes but other images I hope you will find enjoyable. Thank you!
