I went to Woodley Museum of Aviation, it was pretty poor, so I left after 30 minutes with 2 shots.
In the car park, however, I noticed this pair, and followed them from perch to perch for 90 minutes.
Odd how some days work out
Great macro, nice colours and dof!

What a lovely pair of dating, mating, doting damsels.
It's aviation of a different sort :)

@Curly: Kind words indeed! Thankyou!
Woaw, what a macro shot ... excellent details and superb DOF. (Are they really scratching their backs ???)
15 Aug 2010 7:47pm
@Krims@nline.com: The title is half of "You scratch my back, and I'll scratch yours" i.e. I'll do something for you, if you do something for me!
Stunning macro! Bravo!

@DowsherVision: What "comes" naturally....
It IS odd how some days work out. I love that about this photography stuff. : )
This is amazing! I have never seen anything like this - and would likely never have seen anything like this - if you hadn't done those 90 minutes!! WONDERFUL!
15 Aug 2010 10:23pm
@Becky: Well, for what it's worth, they do it all over the world!...and you don't always have to wait so long!

This is an amazing macro!! Unbelievable crispness (I'm not taste testing) and color.....and look at the details on them? National Geographic probably doesn't even have a shot of this ;)
