Orange Hibiscus Glowing

Orange Hibiscus Glowing, originally uploaded by Thomas Tolkien.

The pot plant in full bloom. Now fully settled on a different window ledge, there are four more buds waiting to burst into a feast of floral fecundity. Can the record of four stamens on one flower be beaten?

About to fly away

About to fly away, originally uploaded by Thomas Tolkien.

Via Flickr:
A lady bug about to fly away. I spotted it crawling over a set of sample art papers which arrived in the post that day. She didn’t think much of the 300 gsm canvas rag, but really seemed to like the eco friendly bamboo stock – a classy lustre affair coming in at 200 gsm. I had chance to get two shots off as she scurried to the edge before alighting to a plant border, never to be seen again.

Nearly but not quite

Nearly but not quite, originally uploaded by Thomas Tolkien.

The first of many pot plants. A single ornamental thistle in an oversized plant pot. Part of me had to wonder whether I’d been conned. ‘Bee Magnet’ and ‘Butterfly Bonanza’ screamed the signage. ‘Five pounds for a weed,’ screamed my wallet. The promise of an orgy of bees for my 60mm f2.8 macro lens won out.
The D70s is quiet. The D7000 has an almost sound effect shutter which acts as a sonic cattle prod to anything with wings. Many bees – none in shot.
