Well, it does look like one, doesn’t it?
A studio shot – two flash heads, reflectors and some Photoshop magic for the textures.
This young Goldfinch visited the bird feeder in our garden.
Yesterday (s)he was here with the parents – but I missed that one 😦
Some photography friends and I went to the Hitchin Lavender fields in Hertfordshire.
Here are some of my images from the trip.
All taken on my Olympus EM-1 MkII.

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.
Blossom, blown from my neighbour’s tree!
Pansies – pressed and dried, with a touch of texture …..
Beautiful – but cold!
Taken at a local pond earlier today.
On the Olympus-Em-1, Pro 40-100 lens, tripod and remote release.
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.
