Slow Worm.

Slow Worm


by Mark Johnson, on Flickr

Another instance where just carrying the big 300mm Pro + 1.4 TC was a mistake... It was quite difficult to get far enough away to get the worm and focus properly...

Re: Slow Worm.

slo worms can move very fast when they are disturbed and then disappear into the compost heap.

Re: Slow Worm.

Mark, I won't ask why in the first place you'd want to shoot a worm, but given the lens you had, that's where a phone cam comes in handy.

Re: Slow Worm.

Viewing it on the desktop shows what an interesting worm it is - my cellphone didn't do your image the justice it deserves, Mark. Cool.

Re: Slow Worm.

Thanks all for comments. This female Slow Worm must have been a foot long. How she got there is a mystery, might have been dropped by a bird, and I guess there was greenery 10 foot away. A colleague of mine had walked over this spot maybe two minutes before and had not seen it. Thus a bird drop is favourite. I did have my 12-40mm in my bag, I really should have changed lens.

hey ho...………….
