Hi! Surprisingly there are no circles in the week that was in photos! I guess it’s been the focus in my mind, and not on the camera, as I’ve been writing Google+ guides ahead of Monday’s linky.
Of course, the week started off with a special treat – a mother’s day lunch. Fish and chips for my daughter and husband, mussels for my son, and salad for me.
And there were the usual school runs. I noticed a tree’s shadow trying to break into the shed at my children’s school.
Ship ahoy! My children loved making home made pop-up cards.
And here’s Jack the Lad. He likes nicking seeds that fall from the bird feeder.
During an early morning run, I took a break and walked in the woods on our road. A swamp there looked both eerie and beautiful with the light shining through the trees.
A Blue Jay had a tough time with the bird feeder and kept swooping in for some seeds.
A few more flowers appearing as it looks like winter is finally the season that was.
And it’s already week 14 of Project 365. Hope you can join me Monday on the Google+ Hopscotch – it’s both for active and novice GooglePlussers.
Have a lovely week ahead,
Charly Dove says
Great photos Kriss. I love the swamp and the bird swooping in for seeds. The shadow on the shed is rather special though and of course Mother’s Day. Sounds like a good week overall 🙂
Thanks Charly – it’s been a busy week and look forward to break soon!

Michelle Twin Mum says
That shadow is so funny and I adore the picture of the jay, beautiful. Mich x
I wonder what the shadow wants in the shed!
Sarah MumofThree World says
Beautiful photos – I love the way you’ve captured the bird in action and also the squirrel. The shadow on the shed is fab too – really quirky 🙂
Thank you Sarah – the Blue Jay was having a tough time as it’s too big to perch.
Jo Layboujrn says

That tree looks menacing – unlike the others! So lovely – you have real knack for capturing birds. Thank you for joining in again xx
Thanks! Rather spooky looking tree isn’t it – looks like the mad king of the swamp
Your photos are absolutely stunning. I wish I had half your talent or skill (or both actually!). I saw your comments on a few posts I commented on tonight through #WotW and thought I would check your blog, and I have not been disappointed. Inspiring! Mel
Blush – thank you for such lovely comments!
what wonderful pictures, really breathtaking. I shall definitely be back! You have an amazing talent.
Thank you – I had some good posers this week although the Jay didn’t want to keep still 🙂

Everything photos nice. Bright and have a positive vibe! I especially love the bird moving shot! #betterphotosproject
It’s so lovely having spring finally appear – makes such a difference after such a long cold winter.

The swamp photo is really amazing, very eerie and otherworldly. The shot of bird swooping in to the feeder is fab x
Stunning photography as always, I love popping in to look at your week, it always brightens my day
Funky Wellies says
Jack the Lad is very cute and did the shadow succeed?
Fabulous photos. xx
Hellie's Corner says
I love your squirrel photo and the cature of the jay is brilliant.

Kirsty Hijacked By Twins says

brinabird and son says
Wow that blue jay shot is national geographic material 🙂 out of curiosity what lenses do you use? I think its great your son loves mussels! My wee man had calamari for the first time and ate it all up and I was rather pleased with him.
Thank you – I used a 55-210 mm for this shot but through my bedroom window – the birdfeeder is only about 8 feet away. I have to wait in the same position for quite a bit to make sure I don’t scare them away
Mary @over40andamumtoone says
Lovely photos, that Blue Jay is stunning.
Beautiful photos again Kriss. I just love the close ups of nature, in particular the bird swooping in for food. Off to check out your linky 🙂
Erica Price says
I love the blue jay picture. Our garden squirrel nicks food shamelessly from the bird feeders.
Sue Tyler says
Fab photos of the squirrel and bird. Did you snap with a long lens or did you get that close?
Nikki Thomas says
Wow some really stunning photos there- that capture of the Jay is fantastic. I love the pop up card too.
