|Lovely wild violets.|
|The fabulous Dark Hedges at Dervock.|
|The morning light casts pretty |
shadows on the road.
|In June the trees have leafed up |
nicely. Many years ago, the owner of
a nearby manor house wanted a
dramatic entrance for his drive so he
planted the road with these beech
trees. It's very effective!
|A beautiful male Chaffinch near the Dark Hedges.|
|Sea campion with its lovely white |
flowers and bell like shape.
|A heath spotted orchid - Gorgeous!|
|Purple wood vetch|
|complete with a busy bee!|
|Marsh marigold (looks like a buttercup to me!)|
|This beautiful flower reminded me of a snowflake!|
|A beautiful Fulmar sitting on the cliffs.|
|A flock of Oyster Catchers.|
|An Oyster Catcher was nesting on the|
Giant's Causeway itself!
|A better look -note the red eyes!|
|A baby Robin at the farm.|
|Eider ducks Mr and Mrs.|
|Wonderful waves crash against The Honeycomb!|
|Row upon row of waves head for shore.|
|The wind makes a back spray off the |
top of the thundering waves.
|Even in less rocky places the |
waves still look fabulous.
|The cliffs take a pounding and the |
noise on impact was loud!
|I loved watching the shapes of the waves.|
|These remind me of dolphins!|
|And then they hit the rocks at Port Ballintrae.|
|In June I got some nice pics of |
The Honeycomb - here you can
see the colours in the rocks well.
The Honeycomb is so called
because the basalt columns which
make it up are very uniform in
hexagonal shape like the honeycomb
|And being much calmer than at Easter |
there were some lovely reflections in the water.
|Some lovely limpits and barnacles were |
attached to the basalt rock on Causeway.
|This colourful rock pool was alive with |
aquatic creatures and seaweeds!
|Can you see the little green fish hiding |
next to the rock?!
|Different vegetation grew in the pools.|
|And in a variety of colours.|
|Here's my fish again! There were lots |
of other translucent creatures which have
not come out on my photos but there were
lots of them! I think they were sunning
themselves in the sunshine.
|Some lovely yellowy seaweed.|
|And this formation of rocks high up on the |
cliffs is called The Organ - for obvious reasons!
Isn't nature amazing?!
