Bit of macro

Here are a few practice shots from yesterday.

I'm using a reverse lense adapter setup as shown in the 1st image.


The red string at the end of the lense is just to hold the shutter open.

This is the plant where I took the pics of the bee, its a Budlia in my garden.






Hopefully more photos to come as I get more practice.

Mike.

Garden visitors

Just a few shots from the weekend.

We recently had two Goldcrest visit the garden, they have been coming and going during the week, so this weekend I spent most of Saturday waiting for them to come back, typically no show.

During the wait we had a number of different common garden visitors, here are a couple of pics.

Great tit first, enjoying my sunflower hearts:



























Secondly a Song Thrush:





























Bit noisy, but hope for better light next weekend.

Hope you liked the pics.

Mere Sands Wood

Its been a while since my last post.

We had planned for over a week to get out today and go to Mere Sands because the weather albeit cold has been nice and bright.

Not today though, heavy fog and mist was obscuring anything at distance.  That said I managed to get a couple of shots of a Reed bunting and shoveler duck.

Here are the shots of the Reed bunting.



And the Shoveler duck, the last two photos where just before the duck landed on the frozen lake and went for a slide.



Hope you liked the pics.

Mike.
