I was lucky enough to be shown a picture of what I can only describe as an inside out view of a vortex. It’s the most beautiful view of a whirlpool I’ve ever seen, a truly spectacular result for someone who has obviously given some serious dedication to the art and craft of his chosen profession. Luckily, Paul was generous enough to let me post my new favourite thing on my own website.

If you feel in need of a bigger fix, Paul has them to see as part of his case studies on his own content packed website. This is where you find a professional photographer who will overwhelm you with face value evidence of why he can get you the results you need. http://paulgroomphotography.co.uk

Is it the start of a wasp nest? Is a queen wasp in there somewhere? I took the picture last year just before this particular field was cut for hay.
