One of my tasks today was to take a photo of Ian, one of our rangers at Hatfield Forest, and his sheepdog Selena. It’ll accompany an article a colleague and I have written to mark an anniversary of Ian’s work for the National Trust. There are always warnings about never working with animals, but Selena couldn’t have been better behaved. Every time I called her name she obligingly looked at my camera – if only all animals were so obedient!
