14th November 2013 – excitement
Nose pressed to the ground, tail wagging. Criss-crossing his master’s path, short legs pumping. The lead restricts his movement, but never his enthusiasm.

A woman bustles past him in a hurry. His tail wags halfheartedly as she passes, hoping for a friendly pat. He looks crestfallen for a second, then resumes his watch on the shop door.

25th October 2013 – magpie
His tail spreads out in a black and white fan as he tries to balance against the wind. He struggles on the wire for one purpose: to attract his mate. His high-pitched cackles are whipped by the breeze and carried … Continue reading

6th June 2013 – slow worms
Two males fight. One has the other by the tail. Living up to their name, they slowly wriggle and writhe. Through all this, the female lies, patiently waiting. A silvery-grey triangle, barely visible on the tarmac path.

1st April 2013 – robin
Sitting boldly on the garden fence, his winter redbreast sways from side to side as he scans his territory. Looking for nearby predators, he doesn’t see her. She sits on the conservatory windowsill, hunched as if to pounce. The tip … Continue reading
