mehaul, our electric meters are like yours, but are currently being replaced by "Smart" meters which can be read remotely. My 4 year-old grandson is becoming aware of conservation, and likes to watch the speed of the rotating disc and relate it to how many electric appliances are in use in my house. Then we have to check the gas meter, the water meter, and so on!
Jakeroo, thanks for the moth identification! I followed up and found that it features on a Malaysian postage stamp.
RMG, those owls are superb! I used to do stagwatching for Leadbeater's Possum. It was not unusual to realise a curious owl had come to observe me as I lay under a tree in the dark. I could never tell how long it had been there, as their flight is so silent.
Love those Spring photos from the Northern Hemisphere!
Thanks eveyone for the glimpses into your world.
