Why Me...?

By ketch
Taken this year in the mini heatwave - not in the med but right here in Somerset. This guy looked so unhappy but I guess it keeps the flies and mozzies off (where do they go when the weather is like this I wonder?).

1/350 at f8 on Iso 100 HH and cropped - with very little post processing work (sharpening and a touch of whote balance)

Thank you for looking and if this is my last upload before Christmas a very peacful and happy time to you all ...

Lol, no crop in tight is great, I always get the same comment on my pics, for me the closer in the better.

It takes a very original mind to upload a heatwave shot for the winter solstice. Smile

A super capture, and very effective headgear for warding off the flies. Carol
