Post your "blog" contributions here  ;D

No theme (other than what the passage of time creates), no contest implied, a maximum of one picture per day in the actual month and no more than 4 images per month for NG members, up to 30(31 )for Supporters. You can distribute the contributions as once per week if you so prefer.

The posted picture(s) must be taken within the designated time period. However, don't take any chances, keep your distance, and remember being a photographer does not make you immune to Covid-19 :(

I hardly ever post, but I've been enjoying the constant motion in and out of this nest in my back yard, so thought I 'd share.

I really appreciate all the wonderful images others share, always hesitate to share my own, but am feeling like breaking social distances...

Phantastic shot, just the right amount of motion blur!

Thanks.  No extension ring.  This lens works surprisingly the best with the Nikon Close-up attachment lens 4T.

Thank you, John, for details.

You are welcome, Akira.

Same setup as yesterday (Z7-FTZ-4T-5.8cm).  Still sunny, cold freezing nights, however, minus 4.

C-19 quarantine, hail storms, strong winds, and life could do with an improvement. Today, I got the much awaited printed version of my treatise on Norwegian duckweeds. That is a milestone at least. Now, were summer to arrive and I be outdoors hunting for duckweeds and other fascinating stuff. One can only dream on.

Seeing people outside is so nice. Spain has everyone inside and it is raining. Feels like a different country.

  Birna, congratulations! I love the images you share here, I´m guessing some of those end up in the book? I like you choice of image number too  ;D

  Still at home. News today are talking about an stabilization on the number of new people infected. That is better news.
  Photography wise I haven´t been active lately but today we get to play with a godox ad-200 and a beauty dish.
