Thanks, Joyce......even if the wings are a tad blurred.  I could have probably captured them in focus by increasing the shutter speed even further, but you'll probably agree that the blurredness gives a feeling of rapid movement.

Blackbird leaving her nest after feeding her little uns........they don't hang around, so you need to be quick to snap this!

For anyone who may be interested, Fuji camera set to shutter priority, shutter speed 2500 with a f4.5 aperture.

Does anyone know if the sending of pics via a PM has been disabled ie using the little green tree facility? 

I get "Runtime Error Description: An exception occurred while processing your request. Additionally, another exception occurred while executing the custom error page for the first exception. The request has been terminated." when I try,             

Ta very much.

Hi, Daniel

I'm still finding the uploading of pics not very satisfactory i.e. file size, can't import or enlarge them....not a patch on the old format.

Rather spoilt the camera thread I introduced and have always enjoyed.

Depending where you live,  there's still time. I have about a dozen HT's without buds at present, they look very healthy and I'm sure they won't be long be before they bud.

Now you would never associate Onslow with such a dainty and girly flower! LOL!

See original post

Geoffrey Hughes (now deceased) was a true gentleman, sadly the roles these actors play often colours people's perception of them.

Geoffrey was a close family friend of the Heathcote (Eagle) family and the sweet pea was named after him as a token of remembrance.

......whilst on the subject, this gorgeous sweet pea 'Geoffrey Hughes' (aka Onslow) was bred by Eagle Sweet Peas.
