A much nicer picture than the previous one ,not has harsh. More thought gone into it The differential focusing does it , not arty farty but thought. Just nice.
Totally different approaches Ron. I try to cover many here :)
Glad you like it. I just wish I could show you my stuff at a decent size - they look much better as 16x12" prints than just these small screen versions.
That's about as famous as I'll ever get,Dave,but it'll do.Wild flowers doing there own thing are as good as it gets,a bit like thee and me.
The lipped, pinkish-purple flowers of marsh woundwort are arranged in whorls in the leaf axils. The lower lip of the flower has a fascinatingly spotted white pattern. The flowers are pollinated by bees and will remain on the plant until the first frosts of winter. It has long, narrow, toothed leaves. These are longer at the base of the plant and have a covering of fine hairs.
The name hints at its traditional medicinal uses for staunching bleeding and treating inflamed spots. This is a member of the mint family Labiatae, valuable as a nectar source for insects.
Just looking at the adverts on this page Dave,£2500 for a Nikon D3 body.
Dave: That's a good price! I paid £2850 for mine.
Looks like Ernest has found the Natural England website :)
Quite correct Dave ! Thought the viewers would like the info.
Thanks for posting it Ernest :)
I've just picked myself up of the floor after reading those prices:o)
Aye Frank - and that's just the camera body - add another grand for a decent lens! And you'll want a wide angle lens, a mid range zoom, a telephoto, a macro lens - and maybe a fisheye too :)
It adds up.
