Three couples live in the area around the tenthide, but only one couple regularly visits the spot in front of the hide. Sunday was no exception, although I had preferred them to visit an hour earlier when the light was a bit softer and warmer and there was still a thin layer of fog in the air. Reason to go back and try for some different shots.
I think I’ll put a thin layer of plastic sheet in the tenthide, as it appeared the exact spot where I wanted to lie down was inhabited by not-so-friendly red ants. Both my hands and wrists were swollen for two days because of the large number of bites I received from the little buggers.
