I’m willing to bet that most of you are more brave every day than I was today, but first of all let me set the scene.
I wear glasses – spectacles to correct my short sight. Without them everything is very blurred.
Really, really blurred.
So, when I went outside to sort out my dyeing area prior to sorting the next batch I shouldn’t really have gone out without wearing them.
But I did.
Everthing was as I had left it, all was in order, except……
…… there was something moving.
It wasn’t moving very much, but it was definitely moving. It was also most definitely where something should NOT be moving!
So what did I do?
Well, without thought of risk or safety I carefully took hold and moved it to the nearby earth patch.
Thankfully I had my camera with me. My camera doesn’t need specatcles so I photographed to record the spot! After donning said specs I knew I could return and tackle the wriggling, squiggling thing.
But then I learned a hard lesson.
The camera DOES lie!
You see, when I inspected the photograph all I could see was a worm! Can’t see it? Well it’s there – amongst the greenery just above left of centre. If you still can’t see it send me an email and I’ll give you a grid reference. The trouble is, the squirmy thing I saw was about 10 times the size and all shades of red orange blue and green, breathing smoke and flames and certainly had scales and probably wings. After all – how else could it have arrived on my outside dyeing table?
So all I can say is – never dye without your specs, and I’ll never trust my camera again.
