Not quite half a lunar month later, not quite the same line, but I like the detail on the craters.

 

This is cropped from a 4096 x 3072 image because a lot of it was black. The sky's not quite clear, so there's actually a spray of light around it, but that didn't show in the photograph.

If you mean a "Photograph category" as an assignment, you'll have to give us more than a day. It's not like I can just nip up Ben Nevis on my lunch-break.

Alright, how about all Aspergillus within 2m of my solar plexus? I'm doing Darth Vader impressions here. Never getting a bathroom or kitchen redone again!

Anyone done any gardening today?

Feeding the birds counts. I've been gardening every day for nearly 9 weeks now. My "repeating order" didn't repeat, so I had to order more mealworms myself. They arrived early this week. Yesterday, I put out mealworms for the first time in 2 weeks. This morning, there were three blackbirds and a robin waiting for me at the shed.

Lunaria:

I discovered a plant which I think could be lads love. (Hint don't do a google image search to double check this)

Re: chewed bark: I think 5 inches up is too high for voles. That's more likely to be rabbits or maybe a squirrel.

Middle of the picture. See the middle-distance hill with the scattering of sheep on it? Left of centre, there's a stone wall angling down at a "half-past-five" angle, pointing towards a dark shadow in the foreground. Follow the line of the bottom edge of that shadow up and right at about "half-past-two" to the break between foreground and middle distance. Between there and the wall, there are a pale stripe and then a lot of dark blobs along that break. Those are the roof of the ice-cream van and the customers.

I did something similar with my camera, up by Malham Tarn.

 Two pictures taken from the same grassy knoll, in the same direction, a few seconds apart.

Careful there, Cherry. Trying to deter cats from digging up your bulbs, shitting all over your garden and torturing endangered native songbirds to death may yet be illegal.

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/a-manifesto-for-cats-cat-charity-to-launch-its-10point-proposal-at-the-house-of-commons-9981412.html

Cat Manifesto: The key points

- Compulsory microchipping of owned cats

- A national database of cats entering the UK legally so those entering illegally without a rabies vaccination can be identified without delay

- Updating the DangerousDogs Act to allow prosecution of owners whose dogs attack cats

- Inclusion of animal welfare in the National Curriculum

- Clear labelling of flowers, plants and household products that are toxic to cats

- Outright ban on snares

- Stricter regulation on the ownership of air guns and crossbows

So ... "animal welfare" campaigners want to ban me from killing rats with a clean headshot each? Coming next, a ban on bird feeder poles more than 4' high ...

Apple tree with white leaves

It seems to be healthy enough, if slow-growing

Leaving tulips in the ground

Can they be left in if the drainage is good?
