Friday at the Flicks - Hedgehog, Hoverflies

There hasn't been a deal of activity here recently. Also I have been experimenting with some of the effects in Corel Video Studio.

I only switch on the night recording equipment every so often to check that Hedgehogs are still about. This one had obviously got the scent of something but couldn't work out what.

It was only an hour ago I spotted that the hoverflies were attracted to the pond lilies, especially the white ones:

Have a great weekend observing the wildlife around you.


  1. Those pond lilies are a big attraction John.

    Have a good weekend.

  2. It's like Hoverfly Friday in blogland. I really like the video. What is that filter....High Pass?

  3. They are flowering well this year Keith.

  4. Adrian: The filter on the Hedgehog video was Auto Sketch and for the Hoverfly video I used Emboss.

  5. John, thanks I really am impressed with the emboss.

  6. Adrian. I was surprised how well it worked in real time on a chunk of video.

  7. Getting very arty with the videos John.

    I guess the flies are attracted to the yellow although I believe they might see it in another spectrum colour. Have a great weekend.

  8. Thank you Frank ;)

    I seem to remember insects see the UV end of the spectrum so it would look quite different to them.

  9. The hedgehog reminds me of myself when I have misplaced my glasses ...

    I have never seen an emboss filter on a video; you sure got a lovely result from that!


  10. Thank you Wilma. Bobby also looks like that as he tries to focus on things these day.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
