Pretty unusual, but unmistakable, were a couple of male Smew on the flooded edge of a wood, not far behind the house.

Just thinking that it's over two years since I last picked up a paint brush, and I haven't missed it.

This is one of the last I did - they were following a new style - but my thoughts are now turning back to photography, which I was interested in long before I started painting.
