The Bluebell Selfie

I wanted to take an unusual photo of the bluebells this past weekend, so twisted myself into all sorts of peculiar angles to get ‘the’ shot. I’m a bit achy today, but never mind about that. The photo above is the one, I feel.

Whilst taking the photos, I accidentally took a Selfie of myself, of my usual standard, I must add:

And just by looking at the photo you can imagine the position I was in!

I also saw some white bluebells:

Although they don’t look particularly white on the above photo.

I also saw some striped bluebells:

The second photo above is part of the first as, just like the white bluebells, the stripes don’t appear as bold in the photo as they do in real life.

I also spotted this chap whilst I was out on my rounds:

  And this wasp, sleeping:

This shield bug also popped by for a quick photo:

But it was really bluebells I wanted to photograph…

The stripes seem more vivid in this following photo as well:

I even managed to catch a busy bee at work:

Although he was a little to busy to pose for a photograph, hence the furry blurry image in the middle.

Nature really is miraculous when you look at it in close detail. The above photo, which is also the header image, clearly shows the white bluebell at the front there. It’s also the one in the first photo on this post, just to further add a little perspective.

Enjoy the week! Spread some light and joy! And have fun.

About the images:

All taken over the last weekend of April 2017 out in the Grinds,using a Galaxy Note 4 mobile phone. And I’m not really that achy, all things considered.

  1. Absolutely Beautiful, Tom.
    Those look more like Spanish Bluebells than the native ones.
    Next time you’re passing, see if they have any scent, if there is none, they’re Spanish.
    Also the colour of the anthers (the little stamens inside the bluebells) – they’re cream in native bluebells but a pale-blue (pale purple) colour in the Spanish.

    LOVE all the fabulous nature photos of the ‘frequent fliers’.
    You are way more talented as a photographer than I am. I cannot capture a photo of anything – unless it’s something blurred. lol.

    Thanks for the share Tom. Truly fabulous photos. ~ Cobs. x

    • My pleasure, Cobs… and I’ve seen your photos – not as blurred as you think!
      I think they are the Spanish ones, as they have blue thingies inside the flowers, although there are some that have yellow ones.
      I didn’t know there were different types of bluebells, but thinking about it how could there not be?
