"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

New Garden Record

Had a new species in the garden today; a Meadow Brown Butterfly. A bit of a surprise to see any sort of Butterfly today, let alone a new species, as its been overcast and dull with a very strong wind. It settled very briefly, hence the very sloppy sketch and then disappeared over the fence never to be seen again.
