Another walking day - this time at nearby Ashton Court estate - admiring the beautiful fallow deer.
I really need a decent 'wildlife' lens for small things (like birds) and faraway things (like deer-at-a-distance).

Despite the weather forecast, we had a wonderful day out at the Westonbirt Arboretum. The springtime magnolias were out and the place was full of the sweet chirping of songbirds out to entice mates for the season.
Here's a few more favourites from the day:

Next to the SS Great Britain is the Maritime Heritage Center. It wasn't open today as I walked past it towards the ship itself to do some research on a current project. As I wondered past one of its full height narrow windows, I almost jumped out of my skin when this fellow suddenly appeared looming above me!
It was so bright and sunny outside that you couldn't see the other side of the windows until you came right up close. Lifesize model of a horse - and three more one window along. Man did he give me a fright ...so I had to take a picture. The flag pole and clouds are actually reflections in the window ...

Some day-late birthday presents have just arrived today- from my parents, off my Amazon wishlist ... including this little lovely, "Illusive - contemporary illustration and its context - v.2". I already have volume 1... they are both LUSH ... happy happy me ... thank you the parents!
Note the wonderfully appropriate number "2" on the cover ;)
