I promised you more flower photos, so here's my next one from what turned out to be a very productive visit to the amazing Keukenhof Garden (just outside Amsterdam and the World's second largest flower garden, behind the Dubai Miracle Garden). I was drawn to this particular tulip as one of the petals had broken, revealing the interior of the flower. As I was lens testing, I saw it as a good opportunity to capture the detail within, but looking at it again, I like the colours and shapes here.
If I told you I was testing a short telephoto lens and a macro lens, you'd probably assume I used the latter to take this photo, but it was in fact the former. I shot this handheld with the new Lumix 42.5mm f1.7 lens, mounted on an Olympus OMD EM1; the lens is equivalent to 85mm in terms of full-frame coverage and can focus surprisingly close, making it great for casual macro work.
I posted it, along with a bunch of other samples, on Cameralabs and flickr, and was both surprised (and delighted!) to discover it had been featured on the Explore stream by Fluidr. Within a few hours it had been viewed over 23,000 times which makes it one of my most successful photos ever in terms of views in a short period. So thanks to everyone who saw and liked it there!
All my samples for this lens so far are at the link below:
The robots are remarkably accurate. The robot has an error rate of close to 0 percent. Out of the 6 million doses it has dispensed, it's only filled one bad prescription (and that was due to human error). When humans were doing it, the error rate was around 2.8 percent.

But to get back to your point - closeups of bodies are still sanitised on the BBC - unlike some of the reports on Al Jazeera, for example.
Yesterday I picked up my 'standard' Tesla Model S 85. No flashy wide-boy wheels, just a sensible everyday runabout.
I have this car on a 3 year lease through and Vicky Reed at Fleetdrive electric, and electric car lease company. They are very nice folks and have been very helpful.
Currently cutting together a Fully Charged episode about the hand over and walk through, it'll be up on the YouTubes very soon. There are some mildly amusing moments and even a little bit of actual information.
