Hello, people Smile

Just a quickie to say I won’t be hopping into EPZ for a week while Claire’s here, so I’ll see you all next Saturday Smile

In the meantime, meet Matt the Moth. So named ‘cos I nearly stepped on him whilst he was sat on the mat outside the bathroom. I’d gone to the loo in the wee hours (is that why they call it the wee hours?) and thank goodness there’s a nightlight outside. I managed to make out the shape on the mat in time.

Afterwards, I loaded Matt onto my hand and brought him to my room to photograph.

Vs 1 and 2 were taken on my bed with the Olympus with flash.

Vs 3 and 4 were taken with the Ixus without flash. They were taken to show scale BUT I forgot to change the white balance to Fluorescent H. So the colours are all wrong there. Bah.

Alrighty…off I go. When I return, I will have pics of Claire and places we’ve visited. Lynne (LynneJoyce) reminded me to bring my cam to the airport tomorrow ‘cos you can get good candids there. Thanks for reminding me, Lynne, and I’ll take the Olympus with me this time instead of just the car cam (Ixus).

Have a good weekend and week ahead, people Smile

Andrew

He looks quite exhausted which possibly explains why he didn't fly off anywhere more suitable not to mention, safer. Love those eyes and some lovely texture too. Enjoy your week with Claire.

OK, I don't like moths and I could not have done this! The images are great though, and I'm glad you didn't stand on him in the "wee hours" Andrew!
