The Heat, The Flies.....




































Unseasonably mild weather tempted this blowfly to buzz around our conservatory. I persuaded it to stay still long enough for a photograph by providing it with a drop of honey......

  3. This wouldn't have happened a year ago! As you say, much milder in 2011.

    We hope that you and Mrs G have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

    Best wishes, Graeme

  4. .. merry Christmas to you too Adrian. There is a sequel to this blog..... the fly got away and, refuelled, it's whizzing round the place like it's turbocharged ..... I'm in the doghouse until I can swat it...

  6. ... and a Merry Christmas to you and yours Graeme. Unbelievably mild - we saw a hedgehog out of hibernation yesterday, which was reckless.....
