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 ...

Most would have went for a full head shot , am glad you didn;t makes for an interesting image .... thanks for sharing it and all the very best to you and yours for the Xmas and New year Colin
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
