As my collection grows it becomes less and less likely that I post some subject for the very first time. I posted an adult silvereye from the Lumix back in October

Having been upset from their nest by a cat, they were both on an injectable antibiotic course. As you can probably imagine, giving an injection to something as miniscule as this is a bit of a challenge. Simply ensuring you have the correct dose in the syringe to begin with (we use a 10:1 dilution process in this case) isn't trivial either!
