Taken in Blake’s Wood near Danbury in Essex, the visit was initially to take shots of the bluebells ( for which Blake’s Wood is renowned ) – but I came across these Fiddleheads : developing ferns – before they have unfurled into the adult plant we are more used to.
Frosted leaves ….
… all captured on the Olympus EM-1 with my new 12-100mm Pro lens and tweaked in LightRoom
Is it just me, or is it rather late in the year to see so many spiders’ webs in our gardens and hedgerows?
These were all taken on the EM-1 with a 60mm macro lens and an off-camera flash unit.
At least, I think that’s what it is – and female, at that! Maybe you can put me right if I am mistaken!
This beautiful creature sunbathed on my garden fence for about fifteen minutes this morning – yes, on the 28th October!!! – long enough for me to dash to the house, grab my camera and a lens, to take some shots and then decided that I needed a different lens – so back to the house – and back to the Hawker for more shots.
Both images taken on the Olympus EM-1, the first with the Pro 40-150mm lens at 110mm ( F/9 ) and the second with a 60mm macro lens, F/20 – and really close before she decided she had had enough, and left.
Yesterday we visited Holy Island and after a long walk around we visited a local cafe. A guy was hand-feeding bread to the tubbiest sparrows I had ever seen! I wasn’t sure about the rights or wrongs of this – but it was a great photo opportunity – which, of course, I could not ignore. 🙂
These are some of my ( 60+ ) images. Lots of blur – but I hope that’s acceptable, given the fast moving subjects.
