[jules' pics] leafcatcher

James' leaf catching addiction, in full technicolour.

Well James - I have taken issue with a lot that you write, but as a fellow leaf-catcher I call a truce long enough to express appreciation for this post

I'm impressed if James really caught it by the stem.

Or is this still more faked data by climatologists?

I think it is being taken out of context and misunderstood by those not sufficiently qualified to voice an opinion. :-)

I see your point. James, as a "leaf-catching expert" caught 2 leaves in a short space of time. The second shot in the series shows James holding the first leaf while catching the second. As a beginner at action photography, I did not manage to get this second leaf in the frame, but since this was the best action shot of the series I included it.

At no time have I stated that the second picture show James catching a leaf by its stem.

James claims that he "cannot remember" by which part he caught each leaf, but that it is not impossible that they were indeed caught by the stem since this "sometimes happens".

Is this what a FOI response feels like?

You're saying that James' fingers hid the decline of another leaf? That's a nice trick.

Don't think you'll all get away with this. I'm writing to Climate Depot....
