  1. You're mastering that macro lens very well, Garry! I'm impressed by your focusing/depth skills, one of the main challenges in this discipline. Posted 5 years ago
    1. Thanks Ferdy...it is tricky that's for sure!! i am trying to close my aperture down to get the better depth of field, but the view find goes dark...so i focus on a wide aperture then knock it back down...easier said than done when not using a trip-pod and there is a breeze!!

      1. Which makes it only more impressive! I don't have the issue of a dark viewfinder yet without the issue I find it already difficult enough to properly focus and get the correct depth. Posted 5 years ago

The winter moth is a moth of the family Geometridae. It is an abundant species of Europe and the Near East and one of very few Lepidoptera of temperate regions in which the adults are active in the depth of winter. The female of this species is virtually wingless and cannot fly, but the male is fully winged and flies strongly.
