    Maybe not I'm not looking my best today. The good lady wife suggested that if I didn't post anything technically I could qualify with nothing. But here goes.............Nuts

    This little pooch caught my eye when we went to Brockhampton Manor a month ago ... He was extremely well behaved whilst we and his owners were having afternoon tea in the courtyard ... I have fiddled and then cropped the original a lot . ...

    I got down to a very small world yesterday by exploring the skull-like seed pods of Snapdragon flowers. Then I had a great surprise...there was Life in miniature that could hardly be seen by the naked eye. A baby Woodlouse not more than 4 mm long and the tiniest snail I've ever seen. Seeing these, it makes me wonder why I spent well over £300 on a dedicated macro lens for my long-gone SONY ALPHA 77. These were taken through that tiny DIY rig costing circa £35. 1: and 2: 4 mm long baby Woodlouse 3: 3 mm BABY SNAIL 4: THE LOVERS 5 LIFE FORM Those seed heads remind me of pigs too. FUJI

    It's been another tough week to choose a POTW, it was very close between Korky's Breaking Free image and the eventual winner.. There's been some great macro work posted particularly from JohnP and FUJI, who seems invigorated with his DIY Macro cine lens.... This weeks winner goes to FUJI for his Macro Fantasy set... The original can be seen here »

    Great set, I love the owl picture and the first one I think I have a bit in a socket set I use at work that would fit the hole above the beak, I always wondered what it fitted.

    A superb cognitive disconnect. Only one quibble and that is the title — I think that there are few who would have been less likely to ask "are we there yet?" than the Buddha.

    Just thought I'd drop in to say hello and let you know that I'm still pootling around. And I thought I'd post a photograph while I'm here - it was taken on a walk around Lake Zell yesterday. Hope you're all well - I'll be back in Blighty on Wednesday and back on TIPF very shortly after that. Korky Enjoying the Vista

    This is a clever take on dancing to a modern hit record with old movie dancing clips Fred and Ginger don't look a bit out of place...! https://www.google.com/search?q=old+movie+stars+dance+uptown+funk&oq=old+movie+stars+uptown+funk&aqs=chrome.3.69i57j0l5.16026j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

    Great set of photos. And well done for handling a lens that size! I borrowed a friend's Sigma 150-600mm and could hardly pick up my camera with it attached, never mind take a well-focussed picture!

    Each room in the 600 year old Manor house is dedicated to different era. This room was styled to represent what a kitchen looked like at the turn of the 20th century in the early 1900 s There is a potted history of the house on the following link :- https://www.britainexpress.com/attractions.htm?attraction=338

    It didn't occur to me that they might be getting slightly squiffy on the rotting fruit. Interesting images. Korky

    The first image does it for me... very clear, sharp and crisp... Nice one Korky! Just look at the workmanship in all that pipework.

    Beautifully seen and taken John....... my experience with many insects is that they tend to return to the same place if disturbed, a very slow approach with a camera doesn’t seem to faze them. Hover flies sometimes seem to enjoy posing. FUJI

    Polly.. I'm absolutely delighted and so is my friend, she loves seeing them come to her back door for food every evening. The Hedgehogs have it worked out, one comes about 9.30pm and the other one gives her time to refill the dish before he/she arrives. It's amazing!!! The second house (the bought one) hasn't been slept in yet but the food left inside disappears.

    I just love the last image - the two guardians of the hall seemingly puzzled at what modernity has brought them. Excellent! Korky

    Congratulations Denis, an 'upgrade' to your status. Bet your daughter got a good reaction when she posted the news, and what a lovely way to do it.

    First its a great shot with lovely treatment the water lapping right to the frame edge is wonderful. Second how the hell do those things stay up? rotting wooden pillars in sea water constantly being bashed by waves.
