Ah! With respect dear lady Jan, there is but one strange animal on planet earth, yep us humans. (A tiny bit tongue in cheek, for were not all tarred with the same brush). Sorry, but I am sure you are aware of my feelings re wildlife and nature. Many thanks for your comment, it has, in fact, inspired another haiku, which I will dedicate to you and the amazing ptarmigan. Stay warm and dry, a big HUG... Mick
