Dragonfly in the garden today

I was at work until this afternoon and decided to do a little gardening while the sun was shining. Imagine my surprise when I spotted  a Dragonfly sat atop my now headless tulips. After a few minutes he was still there so the camera was grabbed, at this point it had my most used Sigma 18-70mm Art Lens installed, a few shots later, he’s still there, so then I ran in and grabbed my Canon 300mm Lens with IS, I cracked off some more shots and then decided to get the Manfrotto tripod and the 100mm Sigma Macro lens, these shots are of course the best. I managed to get very close to him, he flew off a few times but came back, I even got that on video but the lens was on auto-focus so messed up a bit. I have been back out to get some better video but he’s nowhere to be seen, I just hope he returns tomorrow 🙂

Haworth 1940’s Weekend

Does anyone remember this photo?
I thought it was about 5 years ago, but it was 7 years ago, how time flies 😮
Taken on 2011/05/15
It was taken in Haworth at a 1940’s weekend, I was walking back to the car and saw this lady leaning in the doorway, the camera was off, so i quickly fired it up and snapped this lovely candid shot. The photo got thousands of likes on Social Media but I never found out who she was to give her a copy.
Last weekend (20th May 2018) at Howarth’s 40’s weekend, I was looking for this girl, I had almost given up on the hope of finding her when whilst sat having a brew, I noticed a girl behind my parents, I was not 100% sure it was her, so asked my Dad and he said he thought it may be her too, so I asked her, and YES, it was her 🙂 WOW, what are the chances? I now would like her to see this but forgot to ask her name – bloody crazy I know :p

The eye from the sky

We had a nice drive out on Saturday with friends while the weather was great.
We went to a place we found the weekend before on the way to Wales with lovely fields of Gold (I think it’s Rapeseed?)
This is my favourite photo of the day 🙂
