Photographs & Commentary by Kim and Andrew Scott

We have inserted a wonderfully creative set of photographs from Kim and Andrew Scott.  What we liked about these photographs is not only the wildlife

The first weekend went well with sunny skies but an icy wind on Saturday.
Saturday night saw a heavy frost which flattened the cosmos...
Happily Hannes Paling and others were able to capture some cosmos pictures on the Saturday.  
Here is a selection.
