Ruby Tiger

By Ade_Osman    
Just an up close and personal shot of a Ruby Tiger Moth today from my archives today I'm afraid.......

Hedgehog Update
For those interested were still seeing plenty of activity in the garden both from the Hedgehogs & the Foxes at night. I did manage to capture the young juvenile the other night, poor little mite was only 330g, anyhow, he's now gone off to a specialist carer, I've neither the knowledge or the expertise to look after one so small. Once he's up to weight, 600g, he'll be coming back to spend his winter in our shed and will be soft released once the hibernation period is over in the spring. At the moment the cameras are on the birds, but 'Hodgepodge' is currently in one of the hibernation boxes that has a camera fitted in it, so occasionally throughout the day, I'll be flicking over to check on him.....And then as usual the cameras will switch over to the garden tonight once darkness falls.

Cheers one and all, just got home after being completely stuck on the M5 for 3 hours because some ****-head of a HGV driver had managed to overturn his load on the M4/5 split.....Call himself a professional driver! He's a disgrace to the profession of which I use to teach! GRRRRR! Sometime's you just wanna smash some folks head in because of their stupidity.........I wouldn't let him loose with the remote for the TV, let alone 44 tonnes of steel!
I'm off for some diazepam and some several jars of scrumpy!.......I'm bouncing off the friggin' walls here Sad Catch up with everyone tomorrow!

Looks like it's overdone the henna, Ade. I did that once, and someone thought I was in fancy dressSad. Would get away with it nowadays, though.
Saw the fox twice last night, really enjoyed watching.
