Well it's finally happened!......I've finally caved in and come over all soft and wussie and posted a flower image, just what has the world come too?......Lord knows what it going to do to my reputation?....Well at least it's a wild-flower that was taken out in the field, that's something I suppose Smile

More news, in case you haven't read about it in the forums, I've finally got around to designing a website, it's nothing fancy and is in fact very basic, but it does contain some images you may not have seen before and at least I now have a presence on the Internet. It also contains a page which displays the live webcam of the hedgehogs, speaking of which I don't know what happened last night as I haven't viewed the footage, but I do know we have at least one resident in the boxes, so the camera will be live all day keeping an eye on him/her.

Special thanks to Ann (pluckyfilly) for her very kind UA on yesterday's image of a Cockchafer......And to everyone else for their kind comments, here's hoping you enjoy this as much even if there isn't an insect in sight Smile Have a good weekend everyone, I'm off now to empty the moths traps from last night, catch you all later.

Ade

Here some of the linky things to both the new website and the direct link to the webcam if any of you fancy a wee nosy Smile

"Taking pictures of flowers and designing a website Ade, is there no stopping you man?" A beautiful image, soft and delicate, and one which evokes a rather dreamy and comforting feel.

Regards Nathan

P.S. Have a great weekend

Clips are so pretty, but hard to photograph - I bought some (I could only afford 3!) to plant around Albyn's Pond, I never did find an angle I was happy with. I'm hoping for another go next Spring when/if they flower again! Smile

You've caught your's beautifully, I like the way you've focused on the top two blooms and left the stem to gently fade off into the edge.

Quote: several of us yesterday were photographing a hedgehog for you!

Only tried photographing mine the once so far, preferring instead to leave them alone as much as possible being as mine are wild and come and go as they please. They're also very close to the hibernation period too, another reason why I'm leaving them alone as much as possible Smile We do have concerns about one individual though who might be under the optimum weight of 600grams, so if the opportunity arises we'll try and catch that one to check and if necessary keep him in the shed until such time as he's strong and fat enough to survive the winter........Just think, I didn't have a clue about the creatures until May of this year Smile

A beautiful reminder of spring Ade, I expected to see a duke of burgundy on it when I saw the thumbnail. Hopefully you will upload some more wildflower images in the future, Durb will not believe his eyes when I tell him that you've ventured into the world of flower photographySmile

An outstanding image Ade - love these little flowers and their peppery scent. I like the tapering off focus - it works well.

Where is the bug? Is it a micro moth behind the leftmost flower?
How could I miss all this?
