Watery and outdoor Wednesday.


Watery Wednesday.
One day while we were in England walking along a little river in a lovely old village making photo’s we saw this moorhen sitting there on its nest with one tiny little baby. And in a minute or two there were four of them. They must have come out of the eggs while we were watching there . They ran away from mum and jumped right in the water where I think it was dad was waiting.

I made a collage of some photo's I made during those exciting minutes.

Outdoor Wednesday.

These photo’s I made in a very old , very well known village in the Cotswolds Chipping Cambden. It is known for its houses and buildings which are all built in golden colored Cotswold stone.
As you can see it was very busy there that day and we  couldn´t find a place to park the car.  We just drove through the  lovely village and that was that. On to other places.

That looks like a classic English village indeed! And watching that moorhen must have been quite an experience - I didn't realize any birds gave birth to live babies.

Cute little hatchlings.
It is always disappointing when we can't find a place to park so we can explore.

Beautiful shots, both watery and outdoors.

Terrific collages. Those are sweet little chicks. The village is what I picture in my mind when I think of England.

Wat een mooie foto's weer Riet, genomen tijdens jullie overgetelijke vakantie.
Ik vind het altijd heel interessant al die fraaie oude plaatsjes met verschilllende huisjes.
Je hebt een mooie voorraad foto's hé, wat vertelde je ook weer, zo'n 900 foto's gemaakt? Pfffff geweldig.

Liefs Josephine

Wow i love those stone houses! We have a counterpart here in the northernmost part of the country, very few people visit there but now a tourist area. Houses have 2ft thick walls because it is often visited by strong typhoons.

Your English village reminded me of our trip to Cotswolds. I like there very much,too.
The scene of hatching is lovely. Leave the nest cheerfully!

The mother moorhen did look like she was trying to keep her chicks in the nest.

This English village looks so charming! I'm surprised to learn parking is also a problem there! :)
