Well spotted given the camouflage - blends in nicely.
Camouflage
That's pretty impressive for a 300mm lens. Grasshopper= camouflage.
I like that and it's great for the theme. You did well to even spot it. I hear them a lot but can't often find them.
Thank you all - only spotted as it jumped out from under my feet. It is amazingly close as the 300mm is on a cropped sensor - so 600mm 35mm equivalent. I do struggle sometimes to find little things through this lens - might invest in a dot sight for birds.

Hi Bebop I prefer the no cat too, what a great game Subbuteo was, and so difficult to explain to the kids of today.
Thank you both. Yes the cat was only there as I thought it was funny - pets always try and get in your pics don't they?

A modern goalie wouldn't be wearing green either would he?

What a good fun shot. I like the inclusion of the oof goal in the background.

Long time since I commented looking back I like all your fenced shots but the bunny steels the win for me I like the Easter Bunnies too the light in that is great . I like your flora shot great dof. and the colours in your household items shot are lovely. Your mother nature shot really captures the action and I love both your shots for patterns. Your tiny shot is fun especially with the cat.

I've had to do a catch up this week..

Week 35: Snapper's Choice

The 'Koan' a sculpture at our local hospital - supposed to rotate and I think light up. As far as I know since 1997 when it was installed, it has never rotated. Looks like it needs a bit of TLC now.

Week 36: Texture

Also in the hospital grounds - I tried a few different subjects and decided I liked this one best. I think it just about shows textures on the chimney, and the slats.

Thank you. No small kids in the house now - just big ones :)

Thank you for taking the time to look back and your kind comments - It's almost a week since I've been here - time seems to fly by and everything moves on!
Tiny - brilliant! Not sure I'd want to be that goalie though...
Thank you - I was a bit worried he might get damaged - especially if the cat decided to play with him - I'd have been in trouble!

Loving the POV on the coloured image, great shot indeed. Plus you forgot Linky.

Nice point of view for snappers, Bee.

That sounds like something my useless council would do too :rolleyes:

Textures, lots going on there, plenty of textures (y)


edit BTW link sorted ;)

Thank you - oopsie! Seem to be forgetting a few things lately!

Snappers Choice, I think you have chosen a fairly unusual point of view that works well.
Textures has a nice mix of weathered wood and metal slats. Interesting lines too.
Thanks - similar viewpoint for both... I did think someone might have to come out of the hospital to help me up after photographing the Koan :ROFLMAO:

Thank you and thanks for sorting link and sorry about that. I must have been too excited about catching up.

There was a lot of grumbling at the time about how much it had cost, but I think it was Arts Council money or something - not NHS funded. We have a floating Bridge across the river Medina that has never worked either!

:LOL: and no problem :)

We have a huge fountain, well, just a water jet really. I think its about 20 odd feet high "when that is working"

But apparently its supposed to be a whale :D

It's an interesting looking piece of art, it's very colourful. I do like the pov.

Texture
That chimney has texture, but so do the slats, it all works rather well.

Good perspective, helps draw your eye all the way up the textures!

Hi Bee

Snappers Choice is very colourful, shame it does not work.

Textures, the angles work well and there is plenty of texture.

Thanks Dominic. It is a welcome splash of colour in what is generally not a great place to visit.

Week 37: Activity - keeping fit

Taken today with this theme in mind. Not the ideal background, No comments on technique please - I was trying to get him to keep his head relatively still :ROFLMAO:

20200916-BC162380.jpg

This was my other option, which was taken at the Hawk Conservancy this week - the activity being Bird Watching.... close up. I was focused on the bird of course, but I liked the look on their faces.
