A Frog On The Footpath

I almost trod on this frog as I was walking home on February 27th, as it crossed the footpath in front of me. After I'd taken some footage and put my camera away, I notice it had hopped into the road and looked likely to meet a grisly fate under the wheels of a passing car, so I picked it up and carried it to the other side. It thereupon tried to climb a vertical concrete wall, before giving up on that and sitting bewildered for a while in the middle of the pavement, where it was almost squashed by several passers-by. I picked it up again, and found an area of long grass and undergrowth, where I put it down, hoping it was a safe haven from the traffic.
Filmed with the infrared setting on my Panasonic HC-W850 camcorder.

Welsh Churches Website

I've become quite enamoured of the architecture of traditional British churches of late, and have been photographing a few recently, as well as looking through my archives to search for any I may have already photographed. Here's a photo of the beautiful St. Paul's Church - in Sketty, Swansea - pictured during a rare snowfall on December 17th, 2010:

Rather than post any more church pictures here, I'm in the process of gathering some pictures together at my new website, Welsh Churches.
Do take a look and click the link if you're interested in this kind of thing!

Kingfisher at Forest Farm, Cardiff

I was lucky to get some close views of this Kingfisher a few days ago, at Forest Farm - a nature reserve on the outskirts of Cardiff:
