Another excellent set. Clearly a good weekend for macros across these islands!

Love the snail. I'm always amazed at how fast they seem to move when they're in a viewfinder. Not as easy to get a good shot as it might appear.

Weed or flower? Your call. A weed is just a plant growing somewhere that you don't want it to. My father once paid good money at a garden centre for a weed that was growing rampant between the bricks of my front garden wall.

all up to your usual high standard Derek still not convinced those flies aren't drugged

Cheers guys

Great shooting again Derek - particularly like the colours, you've mastered a really vibrant yet not overdone look - Superb

Great set Derek, no duffers in here! I take it the 1st & 2nd are without flash and the next two with flash?

Really strong set again Derek... particularly like... er... all of them! But 2 for me by a whisker, partly for the unexpectedness, partly for the softness...

Best

Oooh, 1 & 2 are wonderful - the snail with its strong lines and cuteness complementing the flower with its smooth unexpectedness, as says Bill above. Really like that flower...
