For several nights recently, when there have been less rain clouds about, the Moon has been a beautiful yellowy orange colour. It seems to be in just the right position to catch refracted Sunlight after Sunset. I have tried a few times to capture it and last night gave a reasonable opportunity. Whooped up the ISO to 3200 and jammed the lens barrel tight against some fencing.
I had to adjust it a little in IrfanView as the resultant photo came out paler than reality.
No photo this time as the outside light was off. I was pleased not to see Hope (the young Hedgehog) at all during the day. About 9.30 p.m. she turned up just before I put the food out. As usual she waited patiently while I scattered the mixture of Hedgehog Food (from CJ Wildlife) , crushed unsalted peanuts and her favourite mealworms. She spent a good half hour tucking in and drinking from the bowl of fresh clean water. Almost as soon as she had trundled off one of the adults arrived. I am pretty sure by her behaviour it was Honey. The really touching bit was when Hope came back and they tucked in together side by side. Every so often Honey would sniff Hope and then they would carry on eating. I think if it had been Henry he would have bulldozed the youngster out of the way.
