Been into stereo-photography for a while. This is my favourite picture I've taken so far.

No fancy camera. Just took a photo, shifted a bit, and took another.

You'll need a stereo viewer to see it properly. Unless you can do that thing with your eyes. Parallel-view.

Made the cats a drinking fountain.

It's just a plant pot with a tiny pond pump and some pebbles.

All hooked up to a PIR sensor so it only runs when a cat passes by.


Morris dancer.

Turned out a bit Charles Darwin.

Don't you just hate it when that happens?

Saw this poster in Bavaria.

Inevitably, as part of my day job I have to clear litter. I can never fathom the minds of people that dump rubbish. In parks or otherwise.

If only this piece of art could reach them.

The nearest stack is my contribution to the beach.

Spent today on a course for identifying land snails.
Felt an incredible urge to get some cinnamon rolls on the way home.

I got a day job yesterday. Doing something I really enjoy.

How could you not enjoy working somewhere like this? 🌲 🌳

It's something I've been doing as a volunteer for a long time. Getting paid shouldn't really matter, but of course it's necessary to pay the bills.

Creepy crawlies.

Today I did some bug hunting with primary school kids. These drawings were meant to help them ID what they caught.

In the end, they were way too giddy to bother with ID sheets.

This ash tree had a butterfly pattern hidden inside.

Got to make some flash cards for a bug hunt on Tuesday.

Here are some insect doodles.

A little harvestman, hanging out on my cider press.

Hidden because someone might find it creepy.

Quick and inky shield bug. Copied from a photo I took earlier in the week.


A little shield bug, going about it's business.

Even though it's mostly brown, I think it's a common green shield bug.

A couple of days ago I went on an 'environmental education' course.

We did a bit of pond dipping and sweep netting for creepy crawlies.

We also did some crafts.

I made a story stick. It has feathers, lady's bedstraw, ribwort, some ash keys, an apple leaf, and sycamore seeds.

I also made a frame from willow and weaved a little spider's web with wool. In the web there are more sycamore seeds, an oak leaf, birch cones, and some moss.
