Dear Readers, it has been a very long day, what with technology problems and deadlines and other such nonsense, and so, as I have absolutely no brain cells left, here are some of my favourite photographs from the past few years. As you might expect, quite a few of them feature foxes – the one at the top was taken in my garden, but the little one below was in St Pancras and Islington Cemetery, and very pretty she was too.
Then there are those cheeky parakeets…
And the birds of Coldfall Wood, such as this treecreeper….
Or this stock dove
or this song thrush…
or even these fledgling long-tailed tits
But of course, my heart belongs to invertebrates in the end, and so I leave you with a bumblebee….
and a jumping spider….
and a rather splendid rose chafer beetle. And now I’m off to get a cold drink and put my feet up for half an hour. I hope you’re all taking care of yourselves, and drinking lots of fluids (not just beer :-))
