Little Jewels

By Ade_Osman    
Sorry I haven't been around too much to comment and vote etc guys, been really busy with one thing and another......But mostly been making the most of the good weather, learning some new processing software and slowly getting to grips with some new kit. Also the new Moth catching season has started and up to now the fruits of my labours with that have been very successful with lots of new species I haven't recorded before showing well, however as I record for my local Parish council and County, there's quite a lot of paperwork involved.
A couple of folk have asked where I've been, so thought I'd upload an image I took this morning out in the garden just to let folk know I'm still alive and kicking........Smile
Off down to my beloved Somerset Levels tomorrow chasing a species I've never recorded, hopefully if I get any images I'll post them over the next week......
Best wishes to everyone and thanks to those folk who have contacted me by email and PM asking if things are OK, it's very much appreciated......Regards for now......Ade

A belter Ade. Whenever I shoot a dew covered web, some of the droplets on the outside of the image come out slightly blurred. I see you used f7.1. maybe that's where I was going wrong. Pin-sharp throughout and a shot to be proud of

good work - over the years when I've clicked from thumbnail to view larger on this type of shot the quality disappears. Good to see it still sharp on the bigger version Smile
