Kayaking around killer whales is becoming a popular sport in Shetland. After Euan Crawford's well publicised close encounter with an orca pod off Levenwick at the weekend, the Shetland Kayak Club got in on the act north of Bressay on Monday evening. Photo Ian Leask

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

Signs of life

Very interesting (and clever!)

Looks like he is using some kind of insulating fleece or material as the stage to prevent the crystals melting too quickly - but I guess it is probably way sub zero in Russian winters, temperatures where the best crystals form and survivability is highest. Stage probably open to snow initially then brought under the camera and searched for best examples. Hmmm.

Got macro lens gear/tubes, just need some very cold snow to try the techniques out now!

This is quite a common thing with youtube - the original author has decided it can only be viewed on youtube, so you have to click on the link to watch it there.
