This little hedgehog was a fast mover. I heard her / him outside the office window chasing crickets. There were 2 big black crickets and she cornered them and ate them both. This one tried to burrow down to escape but she dug faster than it did.
I went for a walk this afternoon and met Percy Peacock who I hadn't seen in a while. This is how he looks today all moulted and dishevelled. I said, "Hi Percy ! Are you hungry? If you wait here for 3 minutes I'll pop back to the house and get you a piece of 12 grain Vogel Bread."
He didn't reply ( funny that ,) but did follow me and wait.
Our young ones were down for the weekend, which is never long enough but J spotted this NZ preying mantis inside the house on the windowsill on this red glass.
Maybe it was colour blind and thought it was camouflaged. It is now happily in my herb garden.
Walnut shelling has started for this year's crop. J did some to take back to the big smoke and this afternoon R and I both shelled this lot.
Have you all had a pleasant weekend?
