ABOUT ME

I live in a camper van with a couple of West Highland Terriers for company.
My passion is photography but it is a work in progress.
I am always willing to share what knowledge I have and can be contacted through the comments on this post or e-mail ADRIAN

WHO WILL IT BE? (11/09/15)

Tomorrow we will find out who will be leading the opposition in the UK. Dithery Dave has waded in but as he has five years to convince the electorate he knows what he is doing I don’t know why he bothered; perhaps he hopes it will save him answering awkward questions on matters that are his concern and responsibility.
I’m not getting many pictures but here are few for the weekend.

WET BRACKEN.

FIRST LIGHT IN CLINK FOREST.
Yesterday I went out macroing, it’s been a bit dry for fungus but there are still a few around.

I think this is Artists Fungus. Ganoderma adspersum.

Slime Mold. I am going to stop trying to time lapse this stuff. I have carried it back to the van and given it a porridge oat to eat and it always dies. I’ll have to look it up and see if there are instructions on how to cultivate and care for it.
The Sheep Ticks are a real pest at the moment, the dogs are covered after every walk as are my jacket and trousers. I was brushing them off and realised I have never taken a picture of one that isn’t engorged with blood. This is what they look like before they have dined.

They are not as revolting in this state. Enjoy your weekend, I am set up for both video and time lapse in case the weather is good enough for Barley harvesting.

  2. Really like the image of the light piercing through the forest canopy. I don't seem to see much bracken these days people are rather keen of hacking every last bit down before it becomes a pain, shame really.
    I can only see Corbyn possibly being a good temporary leader in opposition whilst Labour sorts it's policy/accountability and direction before the next election, maybe I'm being as harsh to Corbyn as some are you bracken afterall they both have a prehistoric feel about them lol....have a good weekend.

    1. Douglas, time will tell with Corbyn but I am sick of our MPs being vertual clones of one another.
      Lots of bracken here.

  4. Do you know, I honestly couldn't care less about the Labour leadership. I'm all politicked out.

  7. The first two images, and the second fungus are my favourites, Adrian.

    As far as UK creatures are concerned, there was only one that I had a phobia about, and that was rats. However, ticks are now creeping in there too, so I didn't much like being reminded of them with your images! ;-}

    Best wishes - - - - Richard

    1. Richard, I don't usually kill insects but tick are the exception. I brush them onto a sheet then spray the little buggers.

  8. The forest shot is wonderful! And... It's not like the UK has a monopoly on tiresome politicians!

    1. Ta Bill. Politics seems to attract morally bankrupt liars.

  10. Nice photos (well...the ticks kinda gave me the creeps). At least you don't have the line up of goofballs running for president that we have here in the US.

      I am not too sure that there is much to choose.

    1. Red, I have been on it but the vibration is a problem for video. Heavy rain is forecast for today. I'll see what I can do.
