Weight and Stuff Report – 8 August 2013

Hmm. If the apparently erratic scale is to be believed, I’m a bit heavier today. Or maybe not. It’s hard to be sure.

Something arrived today[1], which encouraged me to take the Fujifilm X-E1 for a walk. I went down to the Quayside, and on the way, this pigeon posed for me:

Further along, I saw a slightly smaller flying creature:

Both images have been cropped to concentrate on the main subjects – the butterfly is presented here at pretty much full-size.

I spent so much time trying to get some nice photos that I had to get the yellow bus back up to the city centre, so the walk wasn’t quite as long as it might have been. But here it is, anyway:
