Little Fox is restin’

Little Fox is restin'

Yes, yes, this is a butterfly of the Aglais urticae species, whose correct English name is “small tortoiseshell”. It’s German name, in turn, is “kleiner Fuchs”, the word-by-word translation of which is little fox. And, yes, I am totally anthropomorphisizingly ascribing to this butterfly that it is, indeed, ‘resting’. Cause “little fox is restin'” sounded like a better, if less scientifically descriptive, title, than “Aglais urticae photographed stationary on gravel, wings folded”. Or something :-). Poetic license, I am taking it. (But taking it where? And why?)

Don’t stir up the Wind’s Bride

Die Windsbraut

This photo comes from my archives, and is of a sculpture in Flensburg called Die Windsbraut. Literally, that’s “the wind’s bride”, but it’s also sometimes translated as “the tempest”, as Windsbraut is also the name of a type of whirlwind, and/or the elemental spirit of said whirlwind. If you use the term poetically, can also mean a female of a wild, stormy temperament.

The End of the Hiatus

So, the arm is totally less broken – not entirely as agile and muscled and whole as it was before I broke it, six weeks and two days ago, but definitely getting there (my physiotherapist says that I can expect to be back to my old strength by Christmas, so there’s quite a ways to go, mostly in regaining muscle mass and strength, as well as some flexibility – apparently you lose 50% of your muscle mass in the first week of not using a particular muscle, and elbow joints are very quick to become rigid…). I’m not really able to heft my camera, for one, so expect a mixture of unposted photos from my archives and mobile phone snapshots for the time being – but there definitely will be posts again, as there is no lack of unposted photos, and I am also allowed (and able) to type with both hands again.

Thanks for all your good wishes, and your patience during my absence!
