Shot on Monday at Rodmarton Manor in the Cotswolds using my Panasonic 35-100 f2.8 then cropped like mad (guess who forgot to take his macro lens Grin )

It was lovely to see this Bumble so busy gathering pollen, as sign that Spring is definitely just around the corner.

The Droneflies were showing as well, so I've attached one of the as a version

I was surprised just how well the EM-1 + 35-100 captured the detail (not as well as my macro but worth doing all the same)
