Duddon Dawdle

The Osteospurnum making the most of yesterday's afternoon sunshine as was the little wasp.
The roads and fields are showing the effect of so much rain over this last fortnight.  We passed this field on the way to walk through the Duddon Mosses. And boy were the mosses wet. I am doing flat walks at the moment to build my leg up after its break and was using my new walking stick while boasting about its usefulness in gauging the depth of water and so keeping my feet dry.  No sooner were the words out of my mouth than my leg started to sink.  I will have to add this move to my physiotherapy exercises, pulling leg out of gloopy peat.

The day was warm and a lone male black darter dragonfly flitted along the path while down below 
a fox moth caterpillar was taking its ease in the grass, waiting for its photo opportunity. Next year this little fellow will metamorphose into this:

 But in the meantime the fox moth caterpillar's favourite food,
heather, was flowering along the path under the birch trees where something had taken a liking to
a Fly Agaric and chomped half.  I wonder what fancied a poisonous fungi with a powerful hallucinogen?

Somehow I don't think that exercise is going to become real popular with the therapists! I didn't know you had broken a leg -- apparently I have missed way to much. I'm glad you are healing well. Your walk (except for the leg in the mud part) sounded and looked wonderful!
