Oxford: Market Street Motorcyclist
Sandstone and sparkle in large ("L").
I was going to blip a garden macro or the covered market (Sunday bustle), until I heard this bike start up, and managed to leave the market in time to get a single fly-by shot as it passed Jesus College on Market Street. My journal has felt a bit samey recently, so this wins today...
I'd forgotten about my sightclist series, but will use this to resurrect it, even if it is a motorised version. It was longer than a bicycle and moving rather faster so could have used a faster shutter speed, but the helmet and body are crisp at least.
I was pleased with my bee macros:
Bumble bee on Allium
Honey bee on Cystus
Bumble bee on red-hot poker (Kniphofia):
Mouthparts out with droplet 1
Mouthparts out with droplet 2
