Three more Bs

Last night we went for a walk down to the next railway station and back up the canal. Because we left in a hurry before it got too dark, and I'd been spending a long time picking a new PC to order, I didn't even have my pocket camera with me. And the light on the canal where the *marina* is was just lovely. Not only the evening light, but the reflections in the water from the tall light you can just see sticking up behind the buildings. Believe it or not, there is a motorway exit just beyond there! It was a major engineering feat getting the canal and the railway and the interchange - a friend studied it when he was doing engineering in college.
So - today wasn't exactly going to be the same light, not at ten in the morning, but when I went out to do the shopping I brought my camera, and was lucky enough to see the heron. I'll have to go back another day with tripod, probably, and longer lens, definitely. And I didn't have my macro either, so was pleased with how the bee one turned out.
I was going to share a recipe today, but as we have someone coming for dinner and C has left to pick her up, I think it will be tomorrow.
