    1. Thanks Sue. Camera should be returned this week so I should be able to get the macro lens in operation again! Apparently they (Olympus) have stripped it down and replaced the shutter system!

      1. Wow…bit worrying, though! Mine has just returned 10 minutes ago, with repaired rear screen after an argument with a very heavy, fiercely sprung door….. Looks like new!

      2. The only annoying thing is that everything is reset to factory settings, and I’m just having to re-customise mine ready for my next photographic sessions…..

  1. This is a lovely photo. And I’d only recently spotted some, or their close cousins, in Wales where they grow in the wild. I fell in love with them as a child, but it was only the recent trip that reminded me of same. And now your wonderful photos. Serendipity πŸ™‚


  2. Beautiful pictures. Love the little ant πŸ™‚
    On my own blog I replied to your comment, but as I am not sure you will read that I will repeat it here:
    I would be happy to join in with your garden challenges. I love your blog and was already planning to come back to it regularly.
    I discovered all of Ed’s blogs have been totally deleted. Hope nothing bad happend to him.
