Award Shortlist   


By PhilG_DPAGB  
Another of the few CHB's I managed to find this year that were in pristine condition. Far from easy to approach as the host plant was amidst some very prickly brambles and about 9" from the ground. On my belly - careful approach - Get everything in correct plane - Select f11 - check the depth of field preview -lock the mirror up-click.- Gothcha.Hope you like it. Phil

Hi kath - Lost a bit of interest I'm afraid - should get around to upping something soon , but do feel there's a lot of tick fishing rather than constructive comments which the site should be about. Cheers Phil
