100 Steps: Winter in the park

Another entry in the 100 Steps series started by Myfanwy Hart, taken in the park near my home –

100December01There was a surprising amount of noise coming from these bushy weeds, or weedy bushes.

100DecemberBirdInBushBy approaching slowly and quietly, I was able to spot this little fellow as he caught his breath. There were lots of other similar birds sheltering or feeding, but they stayed in motion or out of sight.

100December04These plants have a very different palette from my first picture, a wintry grey-white-brown look. (And apparently they’re less attractive to small birds.)

100December05Still, there’s nothing wrong with a few accents in red!

  1. What a lovely 100 steps and especially to the last image πŸ™‚

  2. Red is okay. it’s the accents in white that you need to watch out for πŸ™‚

  3. We’re enjoying some accents in white today–not many, unfortunately, but enough to be seasonal.

  4. You’ve captured some lovely colours and textures here. Very evocative of the time of year. Thanks for taking part.
