Phew. Seem to be getting a grand total of three minutes a day to read threads and post lately :roll:

Anyway, I did pop in and see those wonderful dragonflies Mycroft. Beautiful yet again! That jewel blue is just lovely :)

As for the little beasties in my garden, I haven't the heart to try to get rid of them (well, except for the Harlequin bugs :twisted: Down with the Harlequin bugs! ) and much as I complain about them, I am pretty happy for them to roll up for a photo shoot. Although, I'm not so sure that they've heard that auditions are on so much as news has got around that there are some unguarded organic tomatoes ripe for the picking!

Finally managed to get out in the garden trying to get some texture shots of tree bark for next seasons competitions. The textures didn't go too well but I did get a few woodlice. :D

Edit: Managed to upload a copy of the same photos to Photobucket to make viewing easier. :D

The definition looks quite clear Penners, but I have come to the conclusion I'm not really a B&W photo person.

Thanks Penners; cool as always!

I think we have been sorely lacking in the pics category of late it seems. C'mon y'all, lets see some pics! :)

Thanks! :D The caterpillar's colors look a little washed out though.
