Garden watch week 14

Garden watch week 14

Nearly there! Another week of my project done, 1 animal/1 picture/1 morning at a time with no repetitions. The day I cant find anything new before noon is the day this projects dies, there have been a couple of dicey moments recently where I thought that was it but i’m still going. And I actually got to use my 5d mkiv today! 1st time in ages as i’ve had the 100mm macro glued to the front of my old 7D. Surprise woodpecker before I even stepped out the back door this morning, grab camera,swap lenses,change battery when it died!, hand hold big heavy lump of a 500mm, focus through a dirty window and you get todays pic!
