What a vile morning and yesterday evening wasn’t much better. The hens usually go into their shed on their own as daylight fades but as it was raining last night one decided it wanted to stay up. I managed to catch it without too much difficulty but trying to open a hen house door with a wriggling, wet hen under ones arm is not easy. I accomplished the mission with a few choice words and several unsympathetic clucks from the hen. I’m glad he doesn’t keep emus.
I found a weevil in the barn this morning whilst looking for spiders. As usual it was far from cooperative. They don’t move as fast as spiders but they are always on the move. I have never noticed their feet before. they are fantastic. The stuff on his foot is Vicks as I spread some in a circle with a cotton bud to restrict it’s movement. It just plodded straight through it. That was a waste of time.
Head on and one of my best yet as I have it’s eyes in focus. These were shot at 3X or 1:3. Tomorrow is looking good with temperatures threatening to hit double figures. It looks as if there will be a bit of wind but if I find a sheltered spot it could be an insect day. I noticed lots of this flowering yesterday.
