Just 10 minutes because I forgot to charge my camera – rookie mistake. I was inspired to get out in the garden because my friend Phil was tweeting about using the macro function on his camera for the first time. My bug radar went off and I leapt out into the afternoon sun to find [...]

Only got as far as the thistle bushes again today. All my buzzing friends were there but my hayfever kicked in and after 10 minutes I was weeping like a baby. the things I go through for my art I think this is the best of the bunch – just a shame the centre of the flower [...]
Just a couple taken on a quick 10 minute excursion to the nearby thistle bushes. As usual, with my Panasonic TZ10 in macro mode.
I managed to get out of the office for about 10 minutes at the end of my lunch to get some fresh air after a frantic morning. There’s not a great deal to photograph in the office car park but I did catch this guy before he flew off to pastures new.
I actually got out for an hour today, which made a nice change after yesterday’s mini break. It was quite blustery so I got fewer decent photos than I’d have liked. First off, let’s go with the insects, as always. For weeks I’ve been calling these next fellows Dragonflies but in fact they are Damselflies. When I got back and [...]
As per the title, these photos were taken in the garden, the back garden to be precise. The heat seemed to make the bee quite docile, because believe when I say that I would never usually get that close to one. The ladybird on the other hand I have no such worries about, though I [...]
I was on my to the canal at lunch time but after only 15 minutes I got a call on my mobile from my director to come back to the office to talk about something important. It turned out to be something that will create more work for me, but at least I got to [...]
I went to Woburn Safari Park today with Phil and was able to take photos of many animals and birds. Frustratingly the best moment couldn’t be photographed, as Brian the monkey jumped on the bonnet of the car and sat on the roof, his tale dangling down on the windscreen being the only clue that [...]
On arriving at work I was climbing the stairs to the 1st floor when I spotted a spider on the wall. Though it was quite big, it was one of those spiders with spindly legs and a smallish body, so I wasn’t quite as alarmed as I would have been had it been one of [...]
Not many words today – let’s just say that I am over the moon with the photographs I took today. I’m pretty stunned that they were taken with my Panasonic TZ10 in macro mode and not with a DSLR. Be warned, there are far more photos than usual.
