    Thanks for the info Gardenfantic. I am currently researching prices etc. The Nikon you speak of is the only one I have found with such good zoom - 36 and without changing lens etc.

    Hence your nickname and avatar photo.

    Yours looks like Meadow Cranesbill, Geranium pratense (but I could be wrong).

    Snap... yesterday I took this snap of a bee on my Bloody Cranesbill, Geranium sanguineum....

    Bloody Cranesbill is more of a thug than Meadow Cranesbill, but it's a great plant and will be flowering, and providing nectar, from now until late Autumn.

    And here's one entering a foxglove...

    This is a goldfinch nest, in a climbing rose...

    This woodpecker was feeding the baby (nearly as big as here too).
