Still toying around and re-working some of my recent wasp images I have, here's the latest reincarnation of the image stacks I've been tinkering with........I've got to get out more Wink

Been busy watching the wild Hedgehogs in the garden most of the night, they're such characters! Many thanks for the comments on yesterdays image and video of them, as you might guess, I've many plans for them in the future, but I have to be careful as I wish to keep them very wild and not tame them in anyway. As I said yesterday, WATCH THIS SPACE! Wink

Regards to all......Ade

EDIT:
Right everything's sorted, the HedgePiggie camera, providing I don't get any hiccups will be on a Live Internet Feed tonight from about dusk 8pm!....You'll need to point your browser to Ade's Garden Wildlife Cam Fingers crossed it all works as I hope!

Welcome back Ade. The quality of your images, in this the Macro Super League, has been somewhat missed lately. I most sincerely hope we shall continue to see much more of this rather outstanding work, and that you continue to grow stronger and stronger as each day passes.

Regards Nathan

Very brave getting up close and personal with these critters, Ade: I've had some nasty stings from them and I wasn't even havering near them with a lens.
But what superb capture of the detail in this stacked image.
Ronnie.

Nice one Gary your comment made me chuckle, as anyone who has ever met the Big O will testify he is definitely the wildman of the West Country!Grin I'd be careful not to wind the big guy up too much though, as you do know that tomorrow is his release date and he'll be like a caged beast being freed once those shackles are removed and he's let loose to reek havoc in the community!TongueTongueTongue

An incredibly detailed macro that reveals things we would never have known. I never tire of this sort of photography.
Had a peep at the Live Internet Feed and will come back later.
Is it time you cleaned up that yard?
