  2. It is with deepest regret that we announce the passing of one of our long-standing members, Gary Coyle.
    Many visitors will recognise both his work as a sports photographer, and his name as a prominent community member. He registered with Talk Photography back in 2006, not long after the start of the site and has been a regular contributor since.

    It goes without saying that Gary will be sorely missed by many members, and his passing is a huge loss to the photography community.

    Our thoughts are with his family at this time.

    Funeral details :
    Dewsbury Crematorium
    Tuesday 13th September 2016 at 2pm.
    Afterwards at Batley IDLC (Batley Nash).
    All welcome.


    There is also a discussion thread here if anyone wishes to add their own thoughts.

    I had a play with my macro lens today, I went to Lancaster butterfly house which again is a first so all in all a double first and for my first attempt I'm pretty pleased,

    Let me know what you think. (Sorry I don't know the names of the butterflies)

    Do you mind me asking what lens and lighting you used?

    Cheers.

    A great start - no three for me, I think two is a strong one two, had that have had the same angle as three it would have been my pick.

    The second is a Malachite Butterfly
    The third and fifth are both Zebra Butterflies
    The fourth is a Monarch Butterfly

    I feel like a geek, but I only know as I did some research after visiting a butterfly zoo myself :LOL:

    Great captures, with 2 & 3 being my favs!
