    Sorry, Derek I have not been around for a while! It isn't a "very big" crop but it was probably a horizontal original cut down left and right to make a vertical.

    Many thanks for the comments. The streak that you mention Ju is a raindrop. You do have a very good point and maybe I should have taken it out. It did though remind me of the situation that I took the picture in. There is another raindrop in the lower right hand side of the picture.

  • Goldeneye,

    Hi Sparrowhawk, you are quite correct about the crop. I think at the time I had produced several images from this trip to Martin Mere WWT and I think I just did a tight crop on this one just to be different. Looking back, more space on the right would have helped!
    Best wishes,

    Hi Adrian,
    Many thanks for your comment. I am working on the practicality of providing an "advance" hide situation for "fee paying" photographers. I agree with what you say and I could elaborate (but not here!)

    I hope things are well with you, I don't seem to have anywhere near enough time to do all the things I want to do since I left "full time work" and that includes posting etc here. Please forgive me then if I am not as visible as I was in the past!

    Very best wishes,

    A good point, Adrian. I have used the set up quite a bit and have examples of a plain background and "non plain". This one is done with my Cammo jacket as the background placed over the back of a chair. I have also used a plain jacket. It is not so easy "in the field" to do this sort of thing but always worth a try if there is a chance of a good shot. When they are just out of the chrysalis case (or pupal case if it is a moth) they can be compliant. here is a link to a "video note" that I made of a close up shot of a newly emerged White earlier this year.

    Many thanks to everyone for their votes and comments, they are very much appreciated. Ade, I am well thank you, I hope all is well with you. Since leaving work and going "freelance" (its a great word that, "freelance" and I do say it tongue in cheek!) I have so little "spare" time! My YouTube channel may be worth a look if you get the chance, link via my website.

  • Tony, what a great set of pictures to upload, you have a great eye for a good image. Keep putting the pictures up.

  • Your pictures are not just a record of what you have seen. You work shows you have a great affinity with your subjects and that's the mark of a talented person.

  • Iguana or rainbow, your pictures of the natural world are superb and show an obvious love of your subject matter. A excellent set of images.

  • It's impossible to imagine logging on to e-photozine and not being taken aback by the superb quality of your latest image. Your pictures are inspirational and your comments are so uplifting. Keep taking the pictures!!

    Best wishes,

  • Anthony, what a small world! Your pictures are excellent. I have taken that lighthouse for granted for so long. Thanks to your pictures I have seen it in a new... (I can't say "light") perspective!! We will bump into each other again son.

  • Your pictures are great, I particularly like your showcase. It may be huge distance between Birkenhead and Hobart, but I feel you have brought a wonderful part of the world right to my doorstep!

  • Ade, I do so look forward to seeing your latest images, it's quality photography. Your explanations are of such value and are a great help for beginners also. Not only do you "take" photographs, you put something back in too-- the hallmark of a decent chap! Keep pushing the button.
