It’s raining but the land does need the water. I am not finding any spectacular insects, I don’t know where they have all gone to. Yesterday I found a new colony of Wolf Spiders but they are like lightning and there was no chance of a shot or of capturing one to pop on a little island in a plate of water. It may not work anyway as they can run, jump and I wouldn’t be surprised if they can walk on water.
This morning a fox was sitting in the yard by the hen run as bold as brass. I know hunting foxes with dogs is illegal and very naughty and when the pups returned I told them so. They were tired but I took them for a wander through the wood. I couldn’t find very much but was pleased to press the shutter four times and get four shots in focus.
It must be clean living. These are just thumbnails in Bridge, I’ll see if they are worth an edit later. I am playing with new headers. These are just draft copies and a bit juddery as I haven’t used any Dither.
You will have to press F5 to refresh your browser to see this work. I hope it’s the same on a MAC. I only found out the other day that MACs don’t have a home key. I use it a lot when editing in multi- window editors as it maximises view. I guess Command 0 works on MACs. I want an animated header but have not decided exactly what I want so there are likely to be a few changes over the next few days. Also I use progressive and not interlaced as I assumed that since the demise of CRT monitors interlaced is redundant. I’ll have to look this up.
I have noticed dozens if not hundreds of these tiny flies around.
I think they are one of the grass flies but I can’t find a picture of one like it. Keith pointed me towards Dung Flies and this could well be Norellisoma spinimanum. Thanks KEITH.
That’s all for today. I’ve got to move a mini-digger but can’t find the keys and as it has a proximity immobiliser on that could prove a problem. I remember when machines didn’t have keys and if they did a small screwdriver would work just as well as the key. I can start the big fork lift so with a bit of luck that will lift it. I only have to get it off the trailer.
