The camera never lies… Or does it !?!?…

Up Close and Personal

I’ve chased these round so many times before and never managed to get a shot that I’ve truly been happy with… and I’d not say I’m happy with this one either, but I guess they’re getting closer…

At least this one decided to stay put long enough for me to get a reasonable shot of it..

IMG_8288 crop

IMG_8288I have to confess to slightly cheating with this “macro” shot though, as it’s actually a crop of this full  sized shot.. All I need now is a proper macro lens and then I’ll be well away.. or at least I will be with things that maybe move slightly slower, as I’m not sure I’d have got anywhere near close enough with a macro lens, especially as it was perched in a bush about 3 foot above me… lol…
