That's my right elbow. I had quite a fiddle holding a camera with my left hand for the shot, luckily I had the E-P1 out as I'm not sure I could do it with a DSLR (esp not when 400mm is on it!).

I felt something on my arm, and looking there I saw this bug. I blew hard on it, which is what I normally do to shift bugs that land on me. It didn't work. I blew harder, and this time I felt it "tugging" on me. So of course, I shot it. While setting up for another shot it decided it had enough and disappeared. The anti-coagulation stuff worked as a big spot of blood came out then.

Just hope it wasn't carrying anything nasty.

Weather was too nice so went out to Jubilee lake and Bassett canal.

Lake was full of ducks as ever as well as 4 geese. Canal had yet more ducks and a swan family. While down the canal, I turned out to be lunch for something.
