Well, I've had enough! I'm not going to get one camera. I'm going to get two. Can't go running with a chunky bridge camera, going to get a compact as well! I'm fed up of showing you substandard images.
This is probably the greatest photograph I ever took. It was up on Beacon Hill Reserve in the early summer of, I think, 2014, and was just a piece of amazing luck brought about by the corner of my eye being able to detect a tiny flutter of motion on the ground below, on what I think is a bit of the delightfully named "skunk cabbage".
These little common blue butterflies were so engrossed in their Darwinian activity, I was able to get to about 10 centimetres away from them to take a series of shots that are archived in one of my blog posts from last year, should you care to look.
I really wish I'd entered it in some kind of competition, I really do. And it was taken on an own brand budget smartphone.
