A couple of wildlife shots pulled out of the archive… the first, a lacewing, was shot on my old, old 3.2 Megapixel Nikon Coolpix 990 back in August 2003 – amazing for Macro work, and still going strong to this day.

The macro is something I miss on my Nikon D90 – and a decent macro lens is on the wish list.

The next was taken the weekend I got the D90, on a shopping trip to Cheshire Oaks outlet village. I was outside playing with my camera while my wife hit the shops. There were some starlings picking at bits of food discarded by passing shoppers.

While they aren’t everyone’s favourite bird, starlings have some amazingly iridescent plumage, and the detail is amazing.
