Isn't Nature Wonderful!.....................Farm & Horses

Well I think nature is wonderful. And here Northumberland is teeming with wildlife and an abundance of nature. I would much rather sit in the middle of a wood or beside a stream and watch nature show me the wonders she has to offer than go watch a football match. Well OK maybe I don't like football but I love Rugby and the same applies. My genre tends to be land and seascape Photography, but just occasionally I see something in the animal kingdom that tickles me. It can be the way a sheep or a cow looks at me or the way a duck or swan just happens to flap its wings and it looks like it is dancing on the water and I have to take a shot of it. Here are some of those shots I have taken on my travels. I hope you enjoy my stab at Nature Photography.
