camouflage expert!

By CarolG  

First of all the good news……… thanks to all the wonderful donations from many members of ePZ, I was able to pay another 1,000 euros to the lawyer yesterday, thus enabling the re-possession of my home to be halted. I now have 1,000 euros left of the debt remaining, which will hopefully be paid off over a period of time. I have one last trip to the lawyer on Monday to sign a paper giving me details of the re-payment plan. I feel very humbled by the generosity and support I have had from you all. I thank you for what you have done, some I have written to personally, others wished to remain anonymous, but to each and every one of you, I couldn’t have saved my home without your support.

The wonderful camouflage of this beautiful hopper made him very difficult to spot in the long grass, but he made a slight movement, and I was ready with the camera!
