It's taking a bit a of getting used to, the depth of field is tiny, even at higher F stops. You only have to move a tiny bit and the subject is out of focus... I do like it though and I'm impressed by the results so far... The only problem now is identifying some of these critters!
Here are today's efforts - click to enlarge.
|Not from Druridge but in my garden - Common green bottle fly Lucilia sericata|
|Marbled Bell moth Eucosma campoliliana - I think it should be called bird shit moth as that what it looks like at first glance - great camouflage|
|Bloody cranesbill Geranium sanguineum|
|Common blue butterfly Polyommatus icarus|
|Seed head of one of the hawkbit/hawkweed type things - I though it looked nice!|
|Blue-tailed damselfly Iscnura elegans|
|Common blue damselfly Enallagma cyathigerum - male|
|Narrow-bordered five spot burnet moths Zygaena lonicerae emerging from their chrysalis|

|Common Restharrow Ononis repens|
|Cinnabar moth caterpillars|
|Marmalade Hoverfly Episyrphus balteatus|
|Black and red froghopper Cercopis vulnerata - this species seems to be colonising the north-east of England|
|Small Heath Coenonympha pamphilus|
|Dark green fritillary Argynnis aglaja - there were at least two on the wing today at Druridge|
Nice images. The hoverfly is Episyrphus balteatus; known as the Marmalade Fly.
