A fallen Oak at Tyntesfield, overwhelmed by the weight of its own new life. The first picture is late in the evening, I love the dandelions in the field providing a starscape. I went back the next morning for a different set of shadows. On a much smaller scale, my pond is home to a number of Great Diving Beetle larvae. They have decimated the tadpole population and continue to consume voraciously anything unfortunate enough to come within range of their lethal jaws.
