Thanks very much Robyn!!
This is perfect timing. Well seen. Did you use a macro lens. DOF is spot-on. Liz
Thanks very much Liz, , I’d not seen this stage of it’s life yet, was very pleased at the opportunity, yes I used a 105mm f2.8 lens.
Absolutely wonderful. It’s amazing, exiting and fascinating to watch eclosion (hatching) in “captivity” but to witness it wild is beyond imagination.Lovely image, Macky, a delight to beholdjx
