Manual 365/272 Bloody Hell, That’ll Hurt!

dsc_5914Once upon a time there was a poor old soul, cast from heaven into a bramble bush (That’s just nasty) but so it’s told, he still holds a grudge and on Michaelmas Day every year he expresses his displeasure by pissing or spitting on the fruit of the bramble so the blackberries become bitter and nasty. Back in the day (You know, when he was piffing) when this was being told it was the 29th September but apparently now it’s the 10th October. I don’t know why Lucifer’s so busy tomorrow… But, hey, that means we get another 11 days of bounty so fill your boots! ;o) And just tell Beelzebub to bugger off!…DSC_5921.jpg Just a couple of minutes with my extension tubes and a Bramble bush, just outside Salisbury, and now I’m going to hell… ( I’m not)

Peace Peeps! x

Manual 365/140 The Death Of The Mayfly And Counting Pines…

DSC_0099.jpgI’m sad to announce that Brian the Mayfly (Pictured) passed away earlier today… Probably. And judging by the amount of wooden plaques displaying house numbers in Trowbridge the Counting Pines in the area have already met their Reaper Man!

Flies on the other hand were copious in number, especially for some reason on a particular fence near Semmington,

DSC_0053.jpgThere were loads of them, all just sitting there like some Blowfly / Bluebottle convention.

And finally today, I can see a pattern developing here;

The Ermine Moth Caterpillar DSC_0030-2.jpgOnce again, a fair few of them too! These guy’s aren’t so cuddly though (not that the flies are…) and the hairs that cover their bodies can cause quite nasty rashes.

I know tonight’s blog could well make a few shiver but, personally, I think they’re great!*scratches*

But, just in case it’s not your thing, here’s a blue eyed horse… DSC_0015.jpgSpotted somewhere near Bradford On Avon.

Peace Peeps! x
