Three random things

1) I met a tiny adder last week on the hill.  He curled and hissed and darted defensively at me in a way that clearly expressed 'I am a great big snake!  Fear me!'  but at the same time suggested that it was trying to conceal a monumental lack of self-confidence.  It was a very small adder.

2) Walking down by the river, I saw what looked like a tiny, dark-brown grizzly bear poised in the road in front of me, one paw raised in a heraldic fashion.  It looked around at  me, and then sprang agily up into the long grass of the bank.   I think it may have been a mole.

3) My garden is hot and full of flowers, butterflies and bumblebees, and even some of that great rarity, the honeybee.  I saw a fritillary this morning, although it was in too much of a hurry for me to work out which fritillary it was.
