Re: Signs of spring

Always a welcome sight! I used to love photographing snowdrops but I can no longer get down to their level. Well, I can, but I would never be able to get up again!

I particularly like this shot.

Have you ever considered buying a small drone, John? Seriously.

Less seriously, one on a string that goes only down would do ...

That'll be my wife!

With my shaking hands the type of drone you're thinking of would be deadly!
