A Colourful end to the week.

Odd week, odd week ending. Mojo departed around Wednesday and never re-appeared the dirty stop-out, so finding myself with an hour or so to spare this afternoon was a bit of a problem. Undaunted by the total lack of inspiration I ended up attaching the Kenko tubes to the Nifty Fifty and having a wander around the house.
Macro photography is rather more difficult than you would expect ( especially if you look at some of the excellent collections on www.lightstalking.com) and I had a lot of dull, slightly out of focus shots in the trash to show for my lacklustre clicking.

This little fella that we brought back from Mallorca with us last year was quite pleasing to look at though, partly due to the vibrant colours, and partly those sad eyes. Still need a bit more practise with these but I did know before I started that the tripos would be the best approach (was just too lazy to get it out.
Very little post processing applied to this except for a bit of sharpening.
