Pair of Colmer's Buzzards
I stalked a pair of buzzards playing in the iconic trees atop Colmer's Hill one Sunday afternoon in February. This is as close as I got to them before they soared high above.
Frosted Ground at Powerstock Common
Taken on an early morning walk through Powerstock Common, near Bridport, Dorset. Nikon D7000, Tokina 11-16mm.
An opportunity presented itself when a rather tame bumblebee refused to fly away when I pointed my camera at it. The macro effect was achieved by reversing my 50mm prime lens and holding it in front of the camera.
A Burst of Yellow
Macro of a tulip in bloom in my mother's garden.
Clouded Yellow on a Dandelion
Reverse lens macro trick with a Nikkor 50/1.4, at f/5.6 and ISO400. Got very close to this Clouded Yellow butterfly (Colias croceus) - seemed very timid, if butterflies can be timid. Taken above Lulworth Cove, Dorset, England.
