I was very lucky to get this photo after many days of wind and heavy rain....this wild Barn Owl was clearly desperate for some food because it came out in the middle of the day. This beautiful species

Steve Mackay Cheers Horia and Steve, much appreciated my friends!, thanks for the educated info Horia.....i'm on the hunt for that "Moor Frog" :-)

Horia Bogdan I'm really keeping my fingers crossed on that for you. Take care though, as the color change lasts extremely little in the case of the Moor frog (and i mean that peak of really vivid blue). Some say it might even be as short as 1-2 days. However, don't get discouraged. Just find a populations close by and follow it rigorously. I have all the faith in you! :)

Steve Mackay Here's a shot of what I believe to be a very unusual/rare Bearded Tit, the Iris colour is not what it should be :-)

Steve Mackay I added a close up of a Fly to my portfolio.
It amazes me how many people (including some nature lovers) detest insects or think they are ugly....I think they are fascinating, especially up close like this.

Steve Mackay Thanks Juanli, Alister and Sandra.
The lens combo is a bit of a mix and match (but will do until I get an MP-E 65mm). It's 68mm extension tubes, 180mm Tamron and a reversed Nikkor 50mm F1.4, plus focus rail and cable release.....it's quite a 'contraption' lol :)

Here's a shot of an Azure Damselfly at Sunset, to create this image I had to shot wide open (F3.5 on my macro lens), the reason being that if you stop down, the out of focus Sun will get smaller, but
