It isn’t raining today but it is cool and damp. I went out bugging first thing, I actually went for a walk and took the macro lens which amounts to much the same thing. I did find a Snipe Fly I haven’t got a picture of before as they have the ability to fly backwards which makes then nearly as difficult to photograph as Leafhoppers.
I found lots of tiny flowers at the edge of the Barley so decided to make a tiny bucket for you. The white one is Eyebright I think but I don’t know what the other two are.
I have posted a few in the Disparity series but have lost track hence the title.
Now just a taster of a machine to come in future posts. This beautiful combine is fifty one years old, the second oldest working combine in The Kingdom of Fife.
It is running like a watch but unfortunately has an oil leak on the injector pump drive. The engine will have to come out but it isn’t more than a days job; it’s a Deutz four cylinder air cooled diesel and I suspect shoddy German workmanship is to blame.
I will have to go now as I’m a DisGrace and in keeping with my status have a couple of slappers calling round with a pound or two of nose candy.
