In an English country(ish) garden

Standing in my garden I can sometimes even imagine that I am in a country garden, the birds are singing, in the distance the cows are mooing in the water meadows and occasionally you hear a passing steam train sound its whistle – all very idyllic.  Then you realise that there is the constant drone of the traffic using the nearby motorway and the illusion is broken.   Are well.

I have continued to experiment with how far I can push my current camera gear when trying to capture insects in the garden.   The more I use the camera the more I realise that the resolution available is incredible.

There are technical reasons why the photograph above can’t really be used but nonetheless you can see just how well the chip has captured the fine details of the stem and the fur on the back of the bee.  It is just so impressive.
