It was over in an instant. Well, 1/250th second to be precise. But you wouldn’t believe how many grains I had to audition for this shot.

5 image focus stack. Not perfect but I was very short of time.

I don’t do religion but I celebrate Easter for cultural reasons, so this sinister phalanx of diabetes bunnies is here to wish you Happy Easter!

Apologies for the over abundance of macro shots recently, but a combination of work and illness means that I just haven’t had time to get out and about for a while. However, I’m quite proud of today’s mystery object. In fact, it’s the best I’ve ever grown. But we now have rather an overabundance of PSB, so if you have a favorite recipe to spare, it would be welcome!


The recipe after the day before

Christmas Pudding
No-one here likes turkey, so Boxing Day is all about left over Christmas pudding. As a change from fried, fritters or other variations on a theme, today it’s going to be Christmas Bread And Butter Pudding.

Crumbled Christmas pudding, cubes of bread and butter, a little spice, grated rind of a clementine. Dash of rum? Don’t mind if I do – though with yesterday’s flaming brandy hair removal incident in mind, I think I’ll put it in the custard rather than risking flames again.
