Most people would be highly bemused on joining a table just at the point where a hulking bear of a man is graphically explaining his successful mating over the winter. Of course these were mothmen, and the mating reference was to rearing moths for assembling in the coming season. I joined up with Adrian Russell, a shadow of his former self after a unilateral re-hab style approach to health, and Keith Tailby, larger than life and showing no signs of giving two monkeys about it (not unlike myself), at Swatlands curry house in Oadby. Very nice it was too; a couple of pints of Kingfisher, various chicken based starters and curries and a bit of catching up chat. Plans for mothing this year, new sites to work and reminiscing about the good old days when we had dry hot weather in the summer (ie pre 2007). It also gave me chance to acquire Keith's DSLR (350D) since he's upgraded to the all singing and dancing 40D. Don't expect to see stunning results too soon, may take me a while to get to grips with a real camera!
