We are all Homo patchiensis. To explorer our surroundings - our patch - taking a close interest in the plants and animals is in our nature....

Lights, Camera, Spider - Roby Milling

I can imagine Father Ted would have a hard time trying to explain these spider close ups to Dougal

Father Ted: "This is small (points to spider)... but this one (points to the photo) is highly magnified. Small... magnified... (Dougal shakes head in confusion) ah forget it!”

The colours are all in your head man! - Roby Milling

Autumn is a time when, probably more than any other, we’re aware of colour in nature. At the risk sounding like Philomena Cunk….but what is colour?

The greenness of a leaf isn’t something inherent in a leaf - it’s a sense perception in the brain. Sunlight hits the leaf, chrolophyll absorbs certain wavelengths of light to produce sugars by photosynthesis. The wavelengths which aren’t absorbed are reflected. This light hits our eyes when we look at a leaf, - the brain interprets this with a sensation of “green”.*
