            Can't wait to see that! Will you use Gorilla tape to keep them in place whilst taking the photos? Be careful as it's difficult getting Gorilla tape off your ears. :hate-shocked: :roflol:

              Picked the other side (had no room in my rucksack today as it was full of courgettes).
