He's moved!

By Ade_Osman    
He's moved......Which just goes to prove it was indeed a live specimen Smile

Another large (50+) image stack of Mr Creeps looking very foreboding and waiting for a meal, I played around with this image after I finished cleaning it all up and tried to decide which was the best way to present it and in the end I gave it a panoramic crop. I don't know if the purists will like it this way but it just seemed the best way of showing it off, even if it is a little tight in the frame.

Many thank to Rontear, Nigel Kiteley, Whiterose & Tibetan for bestowing their UA's on yesterday's image, means a lot guys, especially after all the hard work that went into achieving these spider images. Many thanks too for everyone else's kind comments. This will probably be the last in the small series of these Garden Spider images, although I am working on one more, but I'm just not sure of it as yet and as you know I set my own standard fairly high, we'll see though.....

Thanks again, here's hoping everyone has a good day........


Hedgehog Cam Update
Well if you weren't watching last night, you missed a real treat at about 21:30, with both the hedgehog and the fox showing superbly well for about 30 minutes.....Hoping for some more of the same tonight.

I have only been back five minutes and already I am frightened Ade. A superb example of your macro genius. Pin sharp focusing, extraordinary detail, and natural colours in abundance.

Regards Nathan

P.S. Thank you Ade.

As regards the VS Mode on EPZ, as I stated in the very busy forum thread I started, I'm happy to go along with the system despite all it's foilbles at least for the time being, whether or not I stick with it remains to be seen, ask me in a few months Tongue I also urge other members to do the same. But now at least now we have a choice so there's no need for members to be throwing their proverbial toys out the pram over it, not something I even threatened to do but I know others have, which is a shame. I'm slowly warming to it if I'm honest, but then I'm man enough to admit my failings Wink and say when I was wrong.....Nobody likes change, but 'if' it makes the site better, I've no real objections......The proof will be in the pudding and we'll all have to just wait and see how the new system transpires, but in the meantime I urge members to give it a chance, the same as I'm doing.

Zerene Gerry, I find it's much more intuitive and generally gives far better results....

It moved? Get away, mate. You changed your povTongue
No matter, I still don't want to meet this in a dark alleyway. I refuse to believe it is as little as you claim. Mutant, Gene manipulated...

Impressive work, Ade.

A fine shot Ade.
And what's the problem with it moving ?
Just a little nail hammered through it should keep that from happening !!

Ask it to tell its friends to stop making their webs across my front door please. Thankyou.
Ade, it's another gem.
Saw the woodmouse and your cat tonight.
By the way, does it rain everynight in your garden?
