I’ve been having second thoughts about digging out this achillea plant completely – I may just divided it up instead. My change of heart has come because the Ladybirds have obviously taken a fancy to it. It’s still yet in bud, but the Ladybirds are out in force today.
The sun is so bright that I couldn’t really see anything on the screen display of my little camera, so it was simply a matter of pointing closely on the macro setting and taking a complete chance on whether I’d captured anything or not…. equally, I do find camera shake a bit of a problem as I can’t keep my hands so steady as I used to. I know my tripod would help, but by the time you set these things up the insects have moved or flown. So – I just hope for the best.
All things considered I feel quite pleased – especially with the depth of field. I tweaked the brightness/contrast a bit with my paintshop software afterwards.
