This picture of a young hare in my garden was a delight to take. He was really relaxed in the garden and I do have many more photos of him to be shown.

Winter Robin

 I love these pictures which I only recently knew I had. The abstract backround really makes you focus on the robin himself. Now that he is older he is less puffy and he has his adult red breast. I will have pictures of those up soon. I keep plenty of food out for him now that it is Winter and I still like to feed him mealworms from my hand.

More rocks

 These are some other pictures of the colourful rocks.


These stones are not a masterpiece but it just shows how many different colours of stones you can find on the beach. I liked the red rock the best and with a bit of polish I can make it look wet and shiny for a long time.

Fisherman's Boat

 I spotted this fishing boat off of the coast of Ballymoney beach. I like these pictures even though they're quite blurry, but then again, thats the effect. Also in some of these pictures you can see seagulls flying above the boat and in a couple of pictures you can see the fisherman on the boat.

Cinnabar moth

These two pictures were also taken at killmicheal near castletown. 
I love this first picture because it looks as if it's about to take off, but it actually didn't and it just sat there .

 These two pictures were taken in Kilmicheal near Castletown.

This picture I love from the reflection in the water and the way it ripples and shines in the sun.
There were quite a few seagulls around the rock pools and quite a few of them were catching bug crabs but unfortunately I didn't get a picture of that.

A spiders masterpiece

I love this picture of a spiders masterpiece. Spiders weave there webs so delicately and you can see the felt like texture on this web, you can also see how the web is delicately woven around the thorns. This picture was taken on Tara hill amidst the thorny thistles.

This picture was taken up on Tara hill. There were loads of them running about on the rocks and I just managed to get this shot.

These are recent pictures of Ruby. Any photographer would know how difficult it is to get a picture of a dog looking directly at your camera. But with a little help of food I got him to look towards the camera but not directly at it. The first and second pictures are my personal favourite. On the first one I held the food just beside the camera, and if I brought the camera to close to him he would try reach forward and grab it, but the thing about the picture I like is the how clearly you can see the light through the whiskers and how the light hits his eye.

 I love this picture. Although you can't see it in the picture, I threw a piece of bread in the air and this was the result. And it's funny how his ears stick out in it.
 In this picture he was just staring at a piece of food I had in my hand.
As in this one to.

I hate when a fly gets inside your house and lands on everything. But luckily this was taken outside. You can see the hairy legs on it and the slight blue shine on his back, you can also see the pattern in it's wings, and thats what I like about this picture.

Pigeon silhouette

This picture was taken in my back garden. I love the sounds that pigeons make and they're silhouettes make lovely pictures.

Tortoiseshell Butterfly

 I love these pictures of a tortoiseshell butterfly. It had flown into my house a while ago and I though I'd take a few pictures before bringing it back outside.

In this picture you can see just how delicate a butterflies wings are.

This is Ruby again. I put this one up for his owners. Hi guys!! Ruby is a nice dog and very playful.

Cinnabar moth

 I spotted this cinnabar moth wrapped up on this flower. The poor thing. But I find the picture very interesting. Also, this picture was not taken in Ballymoney, it was taken in Kilmicheal over near Casletown. The scenery there is great an it is good for crab fishing there to. It is a great place for picnics. I have many good pictures that are not from Ballymoney that I would like to share but I will inform you of the location if it is not in Ballymoney.

Beautiful butterfly

It is extremely hard to get a good picture of a butterfly, especially when they're flying. I was quite lucky to get this shot. Although it is blurry it looks like a white angel flying through all the flowers.
