    Welcome from me too.

    This is well timed to get it nectaring.

    The foliage does rather dominate though. Once you have your initial shots in he bag hen it's time to think about composition and refine it by moving your position, if possible.
    That includes moving in closer as you go. Ideally you'd use a macro lens - I guess here your lens wouldn't allow you to physically focus any closer, or at least not much more, so if you get a liking for this sort of work you could look into that. Alternatively you cn get a close-up lens. They look like filters but are in essence a magnifying lens that screws onto the front of your existing lens. A lower cost option for occasional use.

    Very well captured Richard, good use of a wide aperture to leave the background diffuse.

  • Just had a scan through your portfolio, some really nice images there. I see there are some big gaps between posting, but hey, quality rather than quantity eh!
  • You've a really stunning landscape portfolio here. I thought I'd comment here rather than individual images. I really enjoyed looking.
  • Yo've got a great portfolio here, some lovely bird images. I can even forgive the fact that the squirrels are grey ones as the images are good lol!
