Queen's Park in high summer

Wednesday I decided I would take my camera to Queen's Park again, haven't been for a while, so it was nice to wander around snapping things I saw.

The lake from a different place than usual.

how much more can she hold in her beak

the pond, it looks very tranquil here

a cheeky chappy, went away disappointed because I didn't have anything for him to eat

It's amazing what a difference it makes when you get the camera angle just right. For this one I stood a little way off and then zoomed in. It looked far better than if I had taken it nearer.

I don't know what plant this is but I rather liked it when taken close up

taken within the willow tree

and some of the flowers

and is this a giant salvia? love the spiky edges to the 'leaves'

I went into the little memorial garden and managed to take a few self portraits there

and finally this photo taken from inside the memorial garden looking out through the gateway I love the way the scene is framed by the wooden arch

I like the little flower before the willow, too, as well as the willow.
But my favorite photos are the selfies - great job!
Sorry its' taken me a while to get round and comment; I've been a bit under the weather.

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
