Dick van Dyke dancing with cocked elbows and knees might appear to be an insensitive cockney stereotype, but it's really the only effective way to clear some space to walk.
I went to London today.
I feel an affinity with the pigeons.
Weaving in and out of the constantly moving mass of unsmiling, unyeilding bodies.
Ducking into nooks and niches for a moment of respite. Eyes on the horizon for a spot to drink, or a crumb to eat.
Only, when they tire of the sprawling game of chicken, they can stretch their wings and soar above it all, look down on the discourteous mob, and poo.
The world could do with less pedantic people in it.
THIS IS A TEST.
It's insect week: https://www.insectweek.co.uk/
Every week is insect week in my books, but I guess this one is official.
Marked sensitive because snake.
My apple saplings are attracting so many aphids.
You can see which leaves they're feasting on, because they're all curled up.
As well as bazillions of aphids, one leaf curl had a bumblebee inside. Evidently it had popped by to drink the gallons of honeydew that was pooling up.
I need to attract some ladybirds.
They might be in distress.
I'm a park ranger who mostly toots wildlife pics and drawings. Sometimes musical instruments, and other stuff.
