There is only one world; the world pressing against you at this minute. There is only one minute in which you are alive; this minute here and now. The only way to live is by accepting each minute as an unrepeatable miracle.

  • The Head

    I must apologise for my late return but it doesn't make my thanks for comments,clicks and awards any less genuine. Thanks everyone!

    Indeed I do still have the skeletons Dave - though now both have lost their heads. Well they're not actually lost but no longer attached. I recall one coming adrift when he fell down the stairs but can't remember how the other lost it!

    Apologies for the late return - thanks everyone - and thanks too to Joline and Keith for your awards.

    The more I look at this the more I like it - not that I didn't like it - if that makes any sense Smile

    Quote:You are doing well still having them.

    They have done well given they are in pots but sat on the earth. I've one that is a good 6 foot tall that has finally decided to start producing buds!

  • A Bee

    Thanks everyone and thank you Ron for your award Smile

    Sadly the wee beasties are getting harder and harder to find now - they're still out there but I've really got to hunt them down now!

    Quote:Slightly mismatched dance partners.

    Ha - yeah I can't see them putting on a perfect show!

  • Orange!

    Thanks everyone and thank you to Pamela and Helen for your awards Smile

    When I took the pic I thought I'd probably dump it once I got home but suddenly thought I'd crop it right down and bingo - it came out ok Smile

  • More Ants

    A belated thank you everyone and to David, David, Ron and Alan for your awards Smile

    Apparently Ants share food in this way - trophallaxis - but theory is that they can also affect the development of the young larvae by passing on growth proteins and juvenile hormone as well as other 'stuff' - all too complicated to write and understand this afternoon!

    Thanks folks Smile

    Yep Chris - a Pringles container. I've made two - one for the 60mm and one for the 30mm as the lenses are different lengths of course. I need to sort out a better diffuser I think - it's a little bit harsh at the moment but shall experiment when I get my act together!

  • Cabbage White

    I've not a clue if anyone grows cabbages around here but I've usually got a couple of these in the garden Smile

    Quote:Amazing to see the spider lurking...
    Good moment caught and I hope the bee got away... Isabel GrinGrin

    I'll check in the morning and see if they're still there Smile

    Quote:Excellent macro image and subject details ...
    Isabel GrinGrin

    Thanks - conveniently settled on a silly metal chicken I have in the garden (I swear the older I get the worse my taste gets!)

  • Wren

    oops - soooo sorry for the delay in returning - thanks everyone!

    Actually I didn't hear the wren at all today - I hope it's ok!

  • Grasshopper

    I'm so sorry for my late return - I have no excuse - just tardy.

    Thanks everyone for clicks comments and awards - I do feel guilty and will try to get my act together!

    Thanks everyone and thanks to Willie and Paul for your awards Smile

    Indeed Janet all these wee beasties seem to be rather hairy!

  • Fly

    Thanks folks Smile I do rather like the way the leaf came out too!
    • 8 Jul 2020 9:54PM
  • Bee

    Thanks folks and thanks Ted for your award Smile

    I do like the Bindweed flowers but of course refuse to introduce it into my garden - I'll just have to get along the bridle path again before they go over!

  • Bee

    Thanks everyone and thank you Andrew and David for your awards. I've taken a ridiculous amount of bug pictures these last three months - it's been rather good!

  • Thick Legged Flower Beetle

    Oops - huge apologies to everyone for my late return - thanks to all of you Smile

    They are pretty aren't they Steve? Usually I'd be visiting a local nature reserve every week to find these - almost every visit I find a different insect is dominant so photo trips are always fruitful. This year of course I've had to make do with my garden and a local bridle path but have been pleasantly surprised on how much I've managed to find!

    Quote:Fast on the trigger - lovely glimpse of light.

    Thanks Kate - yep I was in the garden bug chasing and turned round just at the right time Smile

    Thanks everyone and thank you Dave for your award Smile

    The raindrop/tear was an added bonus - needless to say I had no idea it was there until I looked at it on the big screen.

    Thanks peeps - and thanks David for your award Smile

  • Bee

    First huge apologies for the delay returning - I have no good excuse - too much messing about Smile

    Thanks to you all for clicks, comments and awards - they are appreciated!

    I liked the composition the bee kindly provided so no way was I going to dump the pic for the sake of a bit of fuzziness Smile

  • Teeny Bee

    Oops - sorry I'm late folks - where did the last few days go?

    Thanks to you all - I'm staying home today and will doubtless be bee chasing much of the day!

  • Cardinal Beetle

    Thanks everyone!

    Paul - sadly when I went to the bridle path yesterday the area I spotted this individual had been cut back as well - I didn't spot anything madly exciting but hopefully that will improve! For now the garden will do though I shall still keep going for my walks!

    Kate - one solitary individual was all I spotted - I'm sure will have been more hiding!

  • Mason Bees

    Quote:Did they go in and turn round? (which would be a neat trick) or go in from the other end?

    They do indeed turn around within the tube - the other end is up against the back of the hotel and they seal that up before they start filling the tube Smile

    Quote:Clever to have got this. Smile

    A complete fluke of course Smile

  • St Mark's Fly

    Quote:Excellent picture all round, well detailed and focus and a good shallow depth of field.

    Thank you Tom Smile It's a miracle I got the pic as it was a breezy day and that is presumably why the leaves at the back appear to be moving - odd effect!

  • Bumble

    Thanks folks and thank you Michael for your award Smile

    I was lucky to catch this one - no sooner had I grabbed this pic he turned around and then flew off. Still, you only need one!

    Quote:I'm seeing them - not got one - the chase goes on .Smile

    Yeah - the blighters don't stay still for long do they?

    Thanks folks - and thank you Ron for your award. I've not had a chance to peruse the garden yet today and already it's gone 2pm!

    I'm prepping the kitchen for painting - can't afford to gut the lot and start again so I'm making friends with the sugar soap!
