fallacious

So that's another picture finished. This one is for a nature feature by Geraldine Taylor in the next edition of the Bristol Review of Books. She talks about nature's jesters, among which is the stinkhorn. I added the Cerne Abbas giant because I like the Cerne Abbas giant, and because it seemed to fit the picture. Apparently it is likely that he was the creation of an 18th century squire, intended to annoy the church. So it may qualify as a jest. But he's mainly here because the stinkhorn looks like a penis, and the Cerne Abbas giant has got one too.

Glad we got that out of the way. Penises. They're not big, and they're not clever.

I quite like what I did with the ferns in this picture, though.

Now here's a link to Riftgirl's blog. She's triffic, and has made some really good films too. She's on a roll. Go with it.
