Lens-Artists Challenge #120 – What A Treat!

Here in Ireland, we find ourselves in lockdown again. So we have to stay within 5km of our homes. So for this week’s lens artist challenge it was a case of heading back over the year’s photos and seeing what types of treats there were.

Seeing and being able to photograph wildlife is always a treat for me.

Appreciation of nature

From early childhood I have felt a connection with Nature. I am in my comfort zone when I am surrounded by Nature’s amazing greenery…..

Mayo

Or the blue / greens of the ocean.

In my garden, I get a deep sense of pride and joy when the things I grow can, in turn, provide food for our beautiful bumblebees (and hoverflies)…

And when our unique Irish hares visit, it is an extra special day.
