Now I am not going to write about politicians so please don’t get too excited. I know its been a bad day for some. The Empress Lottie has bent a contact (she’s not saying which one), Sandra has been radar zapped by the Swissies and Yvonne has been let down by an IT “helpline” – who would have thought it. Only Steve and Murphy seem to be happy as The Wanderer has returned. The Murph is doing canine cartwheels.
No, today I ventured out to the local lotus pond and cast my photographic net around for things to keep me occupied. Luckily the rain held off. The frogs were at it like knives and I may post some croakers later but let’s kick off with a damselfly. Copera ciliata, the vernacular name for which was given by Graham Reels. He dubbed it the Black-kneed featherlegs.
The art of camouflage is pretty highly developed in nature and this spider was first rate:
I was playing with my new extension tube today (as boys do) and here is a lichen courtesy of the Canon 180mm F3.5 macro lens with a 36mm Kenko extension tube, mounted on a 5D3.
And finally two shots converted to B&W, just for the hell of it.
You want frogs? Alright then, close ups from the SX50 super-zoom.
I hope the spider didn’t put too many of you off. Constructive feedback always appreciated.
