A quick update, 750 plus.

The ticks continue and my knowledge broadens ever so slowly I hope. Pretty much everything has been gone through from Saturdays adventures, some extra ticks whilst looking through the photos from the past week also cropped up. Even more annoying looking at these beetles from the 13th and not having my macro lens with me, bah!
