It was a very nice sunny spring day in West Berkshire today, so I went for another walk in the countryside near the village. I had hoped I might still be able to see some Bluebells, but couldn’t really find any. Didn’t see anything spectacular, so here are three fairly mundane pictures of a big tree, some cattle in the sunshine and a butterfly on a leaf:

I hope you had a nice weekend as well, hopefully spring and soon summer continue to be nice.
As it was mostly cloudy today with only occasional bright moments I decided to just go on a short walk along the Kennet and Avon Canal. I still took my camera, this time with the 50mm prime lens, giving me a different challenge compared to the zooms I usually use. About a mile and a half into the walk a very heavy rain shower arrived (not forecasted when I left, but then suddenly showing on the weather app…). I decided to wait it out in the shelter of the tree, using the opportunity to try and take pictures of the rain. After about half an hour the rain stopped and for a short while there was even some bright sunshine.
After yesterday’s Great Spotted Woodpeckers at their nest something a bit different today: Instead of the telephoto lens I took the wide angle lens and went to Moor Copse for a few pictures of the early spring flowers:
