Moth with plums, 6/9/21

Emboldened by the appearance of its fellow moth five weeks ago, this one flew over and demanded I did its close-ups. The plums in the background prove that the tree has eventually borne fruit, despite half of it giving up the ghost.

Unless I’ve miscounted — but you can’t prove this, so might as well take my word for it — this is the 1,499th picture on this blog to be taken in Hebden Bridge. Number 1,500 will be along before the week is out.

Self-portrait with moth, 1/6/18

It landed on me. We communed for a minute. I took a photo, it flew off but it had done its job.

God, I’m getting grey. Slowly but surely.
