Unexpected visit

When activating summits - you may possibly get an unexpected visit …
Usually there are dogs, cows, sheep, birds, lots of insects,… (of course tons of flies),
Today I was visited by a young forest lizard. (Zootoca vivipara)

The jungle drums are working overtiime Armin suggesting some big tropo openings are expected over the next few days.

Hi Armin,
Thanks for S2S today on 30m!
I had an unexpected visitor as well and it wasn’t as nice as yours. It was a tick :scream:
It was looking for some exposed piece of skin to hook itself but I found it and got rid of it before it found any suitable place to hook to.
Cheers,

Guru

Hey Guru - good that you noticed it. It s a kind of horror. I got a tick vaccination, but it s not against borelliosis.
A good friend of mine got borelliosis - he is only a shadow of what he was used to be.

This bee is determined to help me in the log.

He wants to take my pencil …

…that reminds me of a course in my education. The teacher asked who wants to have honey. He could sell it cheaply… and took the orders.
Then he said: it would take a while. He only has one bee.
