Recently The Ranger was walking in the delightful Newport Cemetery. Graveyards are almost always good places for wildlife as well as reflection and commemoration, and Newport is no exception. Home to wasp spiders, ants, wasps and nesting birds, it’s an enjoyable stroll at any time of the year. Here’s the central path, gently mossed with its splendid yew avenue, taken last spring just as the big beech was coming into leaf:
But this time, I noticed that something odd on my journey – and I exclaimed to my companion, The Cat, “It’s like a real life find-the-fault!”. So I decided that the eagle eyed Ranger readers had honed their skills enough on cartoons, and as a short intermission I present the first (and probably the last) real Find the Fault. Read on to see what I saw – and see if you can find the fault! Just like the drawings you’ll need to look pretty carefully. Rules just like the real one – leave your suggestions in the comments.
This is a bit further up the same path. Can you see anything odd yet? This first picture is pretty tough but I’m starting mean as I’m not underestimating the acuity of you eager fault-finders. There’s a second picture available as a better clue if nobody gets it.
