Busy in the Asparagus

29th May 2018
Last year I discovered that its not just the customers at Algy's farmshop that love the asparagus as most of the wildlife frequenting the fields used the crop for cover, shade and an easy highway to commute from one field to the next.

I had been a little inpatient waiting for the crop to getting going this year but at last it is now starting to come into its own, looking lush and green as the stalks turn into their fern like foliage.

It is a gamble each morning where to lay in the hope that something will choose the very row I am laid down in to run towards me..the odds are usually stacked against me and so often I have turned round to find the very animal I have wanted to photograph is actually behind me..sometimes even sat with me!

But on the occasion where the plan does work I have been lucky to have the most magical of experiences this year with Roe Deer, Leverets, baby bunnies and more. The more, being the most wily of Fox's, who continues to outwit me every time but it won't stop me trying!
