Your ability to get superb bokeh from your Ollie is just amazing. Only you and the fairies at the bottom of your garden know how......Wink Stunning shots.

Barry is correct, I suspect some form of magic is at work here........

Mind you, whatever it is you are doing, keep on doing it, brilliant as always Carol. Hope the weather picks up soon.

Big bug seems to be giving you 'the eye' in v1. Nicely done and v1 shaves it just for me as there is no overlap between the two combatants.

Two brilliant close-ups, Carol - I'm intrigued though, that they seem to be the same species, yet one has got red legs and the other hasn't! Think V2's my fave Wink

Difficult to get enough depth of field on these two Carol.If only they would behave!.
Thanks for your comments and interest.If you have time I have included A few new variations on my ammonites.
I bought the original fossils in Aberistwith market specifically for my ceramic project.The originals I understand hail from Madagascar.
Best wishes Robert.
