    … winter, if that it be.

    Sun shines so much I don’t know you see.

    But the absence of little ones is telling to me.

    Time spent in the garden used mostly to pee.

    So no pix to post on this dark wintry night.

    Crows only about that do take to flight.

    Maybe a pic from the past is aright.

    One from a world that can afright.

    Thanks TNP ... Everything is in 2nd link in sig. Basically; I use FZ50 and G1 Pany (+ Oly 50/f2) with achromats. Light is almost always flash, snooted and diffused, SS or/and A varied (off f11 - f16, SS 1/140 - 1/160) to include ambient for BG. Working distance is between 2 and 8 (or so) inches and allows me to grip the creatures platform (stealthily) and rest lens tip on same hand for stability (I sometimes use a stick, as my third leg for a pod).
