  6. I'm constantly reminded of the fortitude of these little ladies and how much we rely on them for our living. Such an enormous task, considering their size.

  7. I was sat in the garden some summers ago, with my camera on my lap, idly watching the midges flitting up and down. I noticed there were two larger midges that repeatedly move from the far end of the garden to where I was sat. As I watched an idea formed.......... I set the camera's focus to just about where the midges flitted to, reset the auto focus and set the camera to beep when locked on. The shutter speed was set to 1/4000th sec, the aperture to f/5.6, (the largest for my 300 mm Nikon lens); the ISO was set to 800. When the midges flew to me I quickly focused and when I

  10. These large honey-eaters are pretty aggressive and take control of a large territory of flowering eucalypts (in this case a Red Ironbark in flower). Named after the red wattle hanging on the side of its head.

  11. Situated in the Welsh Marches in Herefordshire the house stands in 70 acres of fabulous gardens and have been looked after by four generations of the BANKS family over the past 120 years since the house was built in 1896. When I as there the tea rooms were open but due to Covid 19 they are closed now but you can still take picnics in as there is seating all around the gardens ...

  13. Yes, I know, hardly startlingly original. But wherever you point your camera, at this time of year, you seem to get a spectacular blaze of colour that just cries out to be photographed. Warning: These are probably not so very different to whatever I may have posted this time last year!

  19. These parrots are called Red-Rumped Parrots, or Grass parrots, by locals. Their red rumps are not visible here, of course. They were feeding in the Cape-weed between the headstones at the rural cemetery near here. I was waiting for the Rainbow Bee-Eaters to arrive from far North to nest in their burrows in the sandy soil of the Cemetery. No sign of them yet.....

  22. With Spring in full bloom, the weather is warming up and the reptiles are getting active. This young Copperhead snake is an unusual sight as we mostly see Tiger, Brown and Red Bellied Black snakes. It was difficult to get his head in focus with auto focus as it wanted to get away and wouldn't lie still.

  23. I don't think its going to come as a suprise which picture I have chosen for this weeks POTW......in fact it would have been more of a shock if I had not picked this image. My biggest descision this week was Colour or Mono........so at least it gave me a little to think about. In the end I went colour......but only just because I loved both versions. Congratulations go to Black Pearl for this shot of Roker Lighthouse (The Power of the Sea) <<< Origional post here.

  28. It's not easy picking POTW...and my turn seems to come around with alarming speed...It's not that I don't enjoy doing it ,.... its the speed at which I am obviously getting older that seems to be accelerating ....👀 So without further ado having changed my mind twice, with new member Fogey's midge getting my vote at first just because of the sheer ingenuity of the capture, then his fabulous stacked image of a garden spider on a bin lid caught my attention and finally I had to award the Magnum of fizzy Dandelion and Burdock to him for Bees and their importance .

  32. Just thought I would pop in with a hot chocolate before I go and watch England playing Denmark in this new competition ... With no crowds and piped cheering it does feel odd but then everything feels odd at the moment with this pandemic .. ANYWAY ... I've been wondering how you and Heather are doing Richard after your gruelling operation at the end of August . You were embarking on what seemed like a great deal of physiotherapy when you last posted ...so I hope that is being productive for you . x👍

  43. Thanks Denis...... Wells-Next-The-Sea.... has bedn a magical place for me since I first cycled there the first week in August 1953.....circa 162 miles in 11 1/2 hours, fully loaded with old time camping gear and supplies. The famous Pinewoods Camp Site and Abraham’s Bosom boating lake had been covered with about 6ft of beach sand during the East Coast Flood Disaster a few months before.... the pine trees were dying and we had to buy locally made tent pegs because the standard skewer type were useless in silver-sand. The town was only just beginning to recover..... I reca
