Lot’s of entertainment and excitement yesterday afternoon as the meadow sprayer man came. It was a bit of a let down, a bit like watching crown green bowling or that winter sport where they run about sweeping ice.
I think I may have made it look even more tedious than it was but I had a bit of a play. I wandered about from side to side as I was hoping to get a herbicidebow but it was not to be.
It’s another glorious day and I am going out again. There are lots of insects now. I saw some frog hoppers this morning…..briefly and lots of other little creatures. They are all well up to temperature and a little bit fast for me to snap.
This lava was fine it just creeps along munching away at one end and crapping at the other. I have no idea what it is other than slightly more interesting than the crop sprayer.
This is the second one of these I’ve found and I still can’t identify it, I suspect it is a Rove Beetle as they can fly but have wings that fold up very small. It could do with a little more top light but I like things lit from underneath, I just overdid it a bit. I tried to persuade it to face up hill but it hopped off and I couldn’t find it again. It’s a pity it was on this sort of grass as I could have just rotated the whole image. I suspect the grass seeds would look a bit silly pointing down.
There I think this looks a bit better with a stroke of the adjustment brush.
I’m going out as rain is forecast for tomorrow and I would like to find some more creepy crawlies. Finding them isn’t the problem but getting a picture is hard in hot weather.
Have a great weekend.
