Towards the end of the session I decided to use the 1.4x and get some close ups. True to form the rain started and this was the only visit during that time.

Realised that I had already processed this one to prove to people at work that when I took a day off to "photograph a kingfisher" that was not a euphemism for something completely different! Grin
