A hot summers day in an English country garden presented a strong framework for a focus on butterflies, bees and the macro photography of them on flowers. The Nikon 200mm f/4 ED-IF AF Micro-NIKKOR lens is may favourite lens for consistently producing new perspectives and unexpected images.
A festival of this nature is not solely aimed at spectators but perhaps more importantly to facilitate participation. We've got this huge interest and all of a sudden people, last year’s spectators are queueing to get involved. This weekend complete strangers have come together and are now successfully participating in the parades. The process of participating in the festival has connected people and is a great example of social cohesion.
