    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.

    Cheers,

    Ron.

    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.
    Best wishes,

  • 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,

    Ron.

    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.
    Cheers,

    Ron.

  • 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,

    Ron.
  • 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!

    Best wishes,

  • 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.

    Ron.
