Re: the beauty of standing deadwood

Not the most beautiful or aesthetically pleasing for sure but still an asset none the less.

Re: the beauty of standing deadwood

nice one david, did you find much in my old wood today?, been over there this evening myself, and I have to say, been quite an eye opener with it being so dry of late.

15 years studying the critters and they still pull the wool over my eyes from time to time, they are supposed to wait for rain!
