The hoopoes seem to be very active about the garden this year, and my other half managed to get this great action shot of one about to swallow its latest find.
We spent several hours yesterday cleaning the "new" car, which had stood under a tree during my two-month trip to Hong Kong. It was consequently very messy - there were even two wasp nests which had to be removed from it! Unfortunately, it's still not on the road, as we are awaiting the paperwork to come through before it can be insured. My work in Hong Kong prevented my being able to deal with that in a timely fashion.
