Garden watch week 3

Garden watch week 3

That’s week 3 of my garden wildlife project over with, trying to document all the things i can find in our garden 1 species at a time. No repetitions and pictures must be taken before midday, my rules, to help break up the monotony of Covid-19 lockdown in the UK .

21 days, 21 pictures.

Getting slightly more difficult now, not helped by the fact that my macro lens has died and i’ve had to send it off to Fixation to get fixed. Week 2 pictures are here
