    Here are some shots from a macro safari last September that I never processed or posted any of all were taken in my garden

    This is one of those I only know exist because I photographed it and it appears to be a many plumed moth

    A couple of bumble bees the second one may have a mite on its tongue I have seen that before and bee couldn't retract its tongue these mites are usually just hitching a lift

    Nice set Alf.

    I think this holds for a lot of subjects, infinitely so for moths. It wasn’t until I started photographing birds that I realised how much was hiding in plain sight, though I have a long way to go to match a serious birder.
