It's amazing isn't it? They drone on & on about animal rights, how meat is murder and other such drivel but in the end cock up the world just like the rest of us, (I think it's all to do with too much roughage, the more veggie you are the larger the amount of crap you dump on the rest of us).

Re: Today in pictures

Whilst I can understand their reasoning, as they were being farmed purely for their fur, releasing 6000 top level predators into the wild with no other natural predator was just irresponsible and criminal. Apparently, from what I've read, a police undercover agent was present when they (the activists) released them from Crow Hill Farm in 1998, though I've yet to read about any prosecutions....

Reading this who is more to blame, the police for allowing this to happen or the ALF....???

Re: Today in pictures

Took Daisy & Duke for a walk down the river and along the canal..

1. Playing in the grass
2. Daft dog thinks she can smell underwater
3 & 4. A bit of horse play.
5. Keeping cool in the river.
6. A Sand Martin, plenty of these around.
7. Not easy to photograph these, darting about all over the place.
8. First time in a while but I saw 3 of these (or same one 3 times) today.
9. A bit of a fish in barrel shot.
10. A Swallow on the canal, like the Sand Martin, fast as .....

Re: Today in pictures

The Ghost Garden

I spotted a news article in the local paper about a ghost garden appearing during very dry weather... So went out to have a look... Gawthorpe Hall, Padiham, Lancashire.

The outlines you can see are from the original Victorian Garden designed by Sir Charles Barry in the 1850's and was lost during WWII, it's due to the soil drying out at different rates. This is probably a once in a lifetime event - bit like England winning the world cup - (I was 4 when they did win in 1966) - only this was closer and could be seen and photographed....

I got close as well recently mate. My second shot was the last few inches of his legs as he flew away.

Re: Today in pictures

I was lucky with my shot of the heron.
It landed on the bungalow roof opposite while I was charging a little point and shoot Camera. I just took the photo through the kitchen window seconds before it flew away.
Over the course of a week it had cleared all the fish out of my neighbours pond.

This caught the cat's attention but she thought better of it and wander off into the shade.
I'm informed it was a lime hawk moth caterpillar. Don't recall ever seeing one before.
