Saturday Morning Bike Ride

Bike ride pics from yesterday. Another lovely Autumnal morning.

I think this is my fifth bike ride since the beginning of August when I managed to start riding again fairly regularly. I noticed this time that the hills seemed much easier than before - I'm taking it as a sign that I'm getting fitter, which would be nice!

I spotted a little bird whilst out on my bike that I'm having a little trouble identifying. I think it may be a juvenile yellow hammer, what do you think?

I also found some interesting sheep. When I take a sheep photo I always think of Meredith as I know she likes them. Bend in the road photos are for Sue!

For much of this ride I am under the flight path for planes taking off from Glasgow airport which is why a large plane suddenly appears about halfway through. It is also a ride wich takes me past several reservoirs and lochs. It was a very still morning, the reflections in the water are lovely.

My robin friend was there to greet me when I came back. I've never known such a fearless robin. He lands on the ground or a branch just a couple of feet away and isn't scared off when I move. I may try and see if I can get him to feed from my hand like I've seen others do, that would be fun!

What beautiful skies!!! I love the pictures of the things like the gate and barbed wire, they are so textural. A real description of the landscape and your surroundings. Glad that you are enjoying your cycling and that it is getting easier! xx

Amazing pictures and I thank you so much for thinking of me with those wonderful sheep, this is as close as I am getting to a sheep today.
Hugs,
Meredith

Looks like a great ride, the cow pictures are my favorite, my husband would love the airplanes appearing in the sky.

A wonderful feeling of getting fitter! Your photographs are fab, I particularly like the one of the two 'coos' standing together, they look like they are having a good gossip! X

What a lovely ride, the reflections are wonderful. I really like that highland cow as well. My neighbour trained a robin to take dried meal worms from his hand, and in time the robin came back with all his babies as well. They really are quite tame, whenever I dig at the allotment one appears, and there was one in the garden this morning after I pulled up the tomato plants. They keep an eye out for overturned earth I think. CJ xx

Your lovely photos remind me that I was there, in Scotland, just two years ago this October. I'll be returning in 2016....what a perfect place to live.

Birds are really tricky to photograph well – you've got two great shots here. I'm pretty sure that's a yellowhammer. Love the photos of reflections in the water. It looks a beautiful place for a bike ride.

Definitley a juvenile Yellowhammer, well spotted.

I love the shaggy bull. The skies are amazing. Thank you for taking us along.

I love all of your photos, but especially the cows! I showed my son the shaggy cow on Instagram and he loved it.
