Headed out to the castle this morning after two days of pretty heavy rains …. and promptly slipped and fell on my backside.
So I decided to confine my efforts to taking a few more dewdrop pictures over the wall of the castle grounds, when I saw this “money spider” trying to rebuild a web. They are basically tiny spiders and, according to superstition, if you let it crawl around your arm twice you will have some kind of financial windfall.
It was still pretty early in the morning, and this medicine I’m on practically wipes me out – so whenever the little angel zipwired down his web strands, my reflexes were so slow all I got was a blurry blob. So I gave up trying to do “action shots” and reserved my clicking to moments when he was a bit more static.
Oh, and as I walked round the other side of the castle to return home …. I prompted fell on my arse again! So much for luck – I returned home caked in mud. I’ve been picking the bits out of the camera lens since then too.
