Came across this little fella today, would have been nicer if he was bobbing and weaving and doing his stuff, alas he wasn’t. I was working at the “Chealsea flower show Gold Medal” award winning McBeans Orchids, just outside Lewes, East Sussex.
The Stoat (Mustela erminea) was probably seeking prey within the greenhouses, may have consumed something nasty. Sad to see a beautiful animal like this, just lying motionless….
This isn’t the best photo in the world of Cone Head, but I snapped it on the hurry. Should it stay or should it go, the cone that is! This statue and cone is a popular subject at the moment. Being a grumpy old git, well not that old, this always makes me smile when I see it. It is a constant battle between the authorities and Joe public. It gets my VOTE to stay, it needs to stay. Its a Glasgow thing…. and that’s coming from a Southerner
While I was taking a break today, I watched this spider build his web. One of natures finest Engineers and Construction workers. No Helmet, high viz jacket, safety boots or health and safety rules. Oh yes and no tea break…..
