Twelve Months of Covid- April

April dawned bright and clear, with no end to lockdown in sight. Still, the weather was good, but the virus was rampaging round the country.

Still off my feet with the ankle injury – my other half doing all the shopping – excited when he came home from the butchers or the bakers, with actual food… we carried on.

The next thing to start to rear its head at this time was something called Zoom… what on earth was it? Some way we could talk to one another without the use of phones – never heard of it we said – won’t catch on we said….

Then suddenly an explosion of Zoom.

One of our camera club members signed up for an account – and we were off – just 4 of us initially – meeting weekly to keep up with the gossip, and share some photographs – almost like being there…

Then the great idea of using it for ‘actual’ camera club meetings….. novel……..

In between times, I broke out the moth trap – sat in the garage for a couple of years I think, without being used much – but a dust down, and left outside, I was surprised with what I caught over the weeks…..

This one below is called an ‘Early Thorn’, really tiny, about the size of a little finger nail, and one of the few that sit with their wings in this position.

Taken in the greenhouse so there was no breeze, it became a ritual to see what was in the trap each day….. There was more to come…..

On the first month of covid – we went to Woodhall Spa
On the second month of covid – we went to Humber Bridge
On the Third month of covid – we went as far as the garden pond
On the fourth month of covid – we were still in the garden
