This is the second piece, still to be completed hopefully tonight.
It is another crying creature this time a badger. Currently in this country one of the national wildlife treasures is being 'culled' to try to fight bovine TB.
It has already been proven that inoculating the cattle against TB would be far more effective and these shy creatures populations were already compromised by heinous badger baiters, as well as all of the usual problems the wildlife faces of lack of habitat, roads ect.

Today I share the work of Wildlife and natural history artist Cath Hodsman.
“The work I produce using my microscopes gives me the unique opportunity to show this detail. I can bring the invisible world into the visible world. Understanding and appreciating insects is
like entering a secret club - exciting and special,” "“They feed the rest of the food chain; they pollinate our food and flowers; they fertilise our soil; they even take part in cleansing our water.
A world without insects would simply mean no world,” Cath Hodsman

To travel in hope of magical glimpses
to a natural world
a moment in time
the flash of an emerald green underbelly
a low flying flock at sundown
the cry of a thousand nesting seabirds
a sense of a before and after
of coming from and
restful or spirited
