PUSS, PUSS. (20/07/15)

Nothing much to report, the weather is mixed but erring towards wet. It brightened up enough to try for some more close up video. The one below is mainly puss moth larva but I think I may have enough material for some hoverflies as well.

I see the Queen of England and lots of other places is spitting feathers because a naughty Australian has published a bit of film of her, her mum and uncle all practising their Heil Hitlers in case the worst came to the worst. Had it been up to her uncle Eddy then I suspect he would have invited him in. According to sources close to Dithery, Spoon Face, Dave she is not purring and would be quite happy to do nasty things to Muckraker Murdoch. How dare he cast aspersions on ones family and one…..Off with his head.



Back to reality. Here is Monday’s Movie. Puss, Puss. I hope you enjoy it but if you don't then I'm sorry and will try harder next time.

  1. Most edifying... Watching the puss munch was made even more interesting by the youtube ad across the bottom of the screen which displayed "the three worst foods for your prostate" Nice work, though!

    1. Gracias Laura. Nuestra reina está enojado si ella no consigue thungs justo cuando ella le gustan.

  3. Great footage, Adrian. I love the way it suddenly realises the music's playing and stops eating and starts to dance at around the 1.50 mark!

    You're really having bad luck with the weather. I hope it clears up soon as I've got another visit to Speyside in the offing!

    Best wishes - - - Richard

    1. Richard, I noticed this early on in the proceedings. I did try synchronising the sound to it's dancing but hadn't got enough dancing to play with.
      The weather is what it is. It could be worse.

    1. Peter, Photoshop CS6 from choice as I'm most familiar with it. I could do with AfterEffects but refuse to pay extra for it. I use the VSE in Blender for complicated things and Audacity to run all the audio tracks together and save as MP3.
      I find that if I have a clip that needs any adjustments, exposure, saturation then it is easiest to render the clip and then pop it back into the video sequence editor. I could really do with another monitor but haven't got room for a third screen.

  8. The royal family, Nazi sympathisers? What ever next, the ruling classes at the time also arrested and interned for not only being sympathisers but passing info on to the Germans. But Murdoch wouldn't wish to publish that old news in case a 'Lord' looked into his businesses tax affairs in the UK. Still I like it when the toffs start slinging mud at each other.
    The rain sounded dreadful on the video.

    1. Douglas, they have to print something.
      I put a bit of echo on the rain.

  9. That little thing sure knows how to munch through the leaf. Not so good at dancing, though. Have to admit, my favourite is Little Bird.

    1. Pauline I will have to r=try and identify the little bird. I have taken a few minutes of audio of it.

  11. Peaceful study of a tiny part of nature. I am glad you tarried there a while.
    Regarding the cyclists, was that Father Christmas I saw? He needs to head further north than The Orkneys!

  12. I thought your video work was fine. I missed some (only some) of your quiet narration, but I do have poor ears, so it's likely my fault.

    1. John, it's me. I get muddled up between tracks and edit the wrong one.

  13. That's quite some movie Adrian. The larva is quite a chomper.
