Comments Keep up with comments here: Sheena Taylor on Westray Regatta – The Hall of Einar – photograph (c) David Bailey (not the)This is a beautiful picture of Lily the Orkney Yole Association's own boat at the Westray regatta 2017. We are concentrating on seeing the flag drop at the start of the sequence for the second race. Would you contact me please as I am interested in this picture for reasons I will explain. You have caught the concentration and the purple light of the threatening rainstorm, which thankfully just skirted the bay. Our sails are not our main priority at that moment, but they're not too badly set.

Alas we've had our first heavy frost and I suspect that's the last I'll see this year. That clouded yellow is beautiful! David @ the HALL of EINAR on The King of FishersThanks very much Heather. Just how big is that "little collection of found skulls"?! David @ the HALL of EINAR on The King of FishersThanks very much Pat - I'm delighted you've enjoyed seeing them.

This is one of my favorite birds -- except we don't have them here. I used to think they were an artist's creation until I saw a real one -- just once -- in Germany perhaps? Thanks for posting these exceptional images.

David @ the HALL of EINAR on Robins, Robins everywhereThanks very much Pat. I'm certainly spoilt for choice for photographs to go on my Christmas cards this year! Pat Nelson on Robins, Robins everywhereExcellent photos of every feather! Pat Nelson on The King of FishersWhat a treat to see these wonderful captures!

My favourite bird. They're so clear you feel you could reach out and touch them. . Thank you so much for sharing them.

I'd love to see one which has leucism - the white feathers you mention Liz. It just adds to their character.

I actually live a life of long journeys, anonymous hotels, grim urban landscapes and soulless industrial estates. Contact with nature is an important self-administered antidote to that creeping poison. Every leaf that falls, twirling and orange, every crack in the roadside dirt with a mushroom peeping through, and every call from a Jay high above the traffic is a joy for my soul. I'm glad you enjoy visiting here. Thanks for taking the time to comment - it's very kind of you.
