the top (almost) and the bottom (almost) of the food chain

crocuses about to bloom as some warmth returns to the soil. For the technically minded Spot is experimenting with a 2 dioptre lens on the end of a FX Nikon 24 - 70mm lens, a tripod, and F22 which makes the camera intensely short sighted (like him) but gives a lot of depth of field over quite a wide area. Roll on FRPS.

today we heard the first skylark of the year, high and invisible to the naked eye, but a little flock of four flew past. They like rough pasture like this field and nest on the ground although the nests are very hard to find. It feels as if Spring is almost here, the tipping point, but so often this turns out to be an illusion and Winter bites back. February always feels like the longest month of all.
