    the last photo has a bug ? censored because too hot 😆 better and better your photos !!! :yes: the Reed Warblers : I maybe seen it but never so close ! It must be confused with other passerine birds …you had to wait for a long time to be invisible for the foxes ? great expression ..they have seen you at the end how much meters from them you are ? the azurs are very neat too ! always with pentax ? and macro zoom ?

    we have foxes but not in my garden , and I have never seen them in streets ,(some people has seen one ! early morning or in night in small wood , maybe because frenchies are so clean 20 meters is far ! with 300 it's very neat ,in daylight !!!you have no made some retouching with photoshop ? you're sure Common Blues are so small …and Pentax no an articulating screen for the futur ? alas it would be useful :wine: :whistle:

    Only usual brightness, contrast, sharpening adjustments that are essential when shooting raw. Cropped of course. Yes, maybe articulating screen would be good.

    I'm awestruck….for insects a articulating screen will avoid to lie in the grass and be eaten by insects or bitten by ants, or have a stiff neck when you aim high perched birds
