    Default A tonne of shots... because I took a tonne of shots. (Bilbo, 100L ftw dude!)

    Enjoying Potentilla, Sedum and "get off it's mine"

    Enjoying the Potentilla



    Relaxing on the Sedum. One thing I've noticed about these big Flesh flies is that they're very curious and often turn to face you directly.



    Another one on the Potentilla



    Orb Weaver with what's left of its dinner (after I accidentally broke one of its supporting web strands and it swung onto the fence)






    Eupeodes corollae and a Bee on Potentilla plus an Inverted Wasp


    The Potentilla is blooming very nicely at the moment attracting lots of bugs.



    This bee likes it too



    I considered a 180deg rotation but it didn't look right... besides, this was how the wasp was when I photographed it.



    A little closer (non-crop)






    Halyzia 16-guttata (16 spot Orange Ladybug/Bird)

    First I've seen of one these LB's in my garden so I'm sure you'll not grudge me a few shots :wink

    Where it was, was not an easy position to photograph it so I coaxed it onto my hand.












    Withdrawing its head underneath the protection of its Pronotum gives it a rather sad face look.

    Excellent set Ian - I hope mine works out as well as this when it lands buddy.

    Love the hoverfly.


    Supe, all the above Ian used f/10 at 1/250 @ 250ISO.

    Paul.

    Thanks Guys

    Yup, Supe, All shots at f/10 at 1/250 @ 250ISO as Bilbo points out. However the Exif doesn't show I was one single 20mm ext. tube.

    Paul, it should be bang on for you mate. Just remember that due to a number of filters on the camera sensor, you still have to apply a touch of sharpening in PP. Not a massive amount though.

    really great shots mate
    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.
