A short drive from home across a neighbouring county fetched us up into Co. Westmeath
and in particular to Lough Ennell
Where we were greeted by a whiteness of swans who were busily preening themselves.
The way in which this pair were acting towards each other strongly suggested that
there would be some hanky-panky between them later !
Much the same with this pair too !
Later that night I just happened to be outside when I saw a red moon rising.
In the short time it took to reach my camera the redness had faded to a rich gold.
Then became banana coloured
and just before it disappeared behind some cloud the red began to return,
by which time I had become quite chilled so I returned to the fire that blazed in the stove.
