I am a 53 year old ageing Hippy with a love of nature . A romantic at heart but sadly single. I used to be a decorator but since my father became ill I have given up my business to care for him full time . When I have time to myself I like nothing more than to get out into the woods or the countryside and capture the sights around me. I hope you enjoy seeing what I see. Thanks for viewing. Kind regards Mark.

    This is very cool Mark He knew where the good stuff was. Great shot .. :)

  • I cheated slightly here Bingo by putting a little sugar water on the leaves. They love it. I was trying to attract some butterflies but it didn’t work. Many thanks.
