The other day Ilona on Life After Money gave a tutorial to turn a drinks can into a tea light holder.
I made two and joined them together back to back to make this
The drinks cans are so easy to work with so I cut another two, and joined them together one on top of the other to make this flower
Here they are together in the tree (the curly one is top left and you can just see the leaping deer under the bottom branch)
You may not know that St Mark's flies only live for about a week around the 25th April which is St Mark's day (hence their name!). They are very distinctive as they are very black and their legs dangle down as the fly. I've found out it's very difficult to photograph flies in flight but I managed to capture a couple here after taking loads of shots
Can you spot them both? Well three if you count the blurred one that's in the middle.
