It’s a small world.

It’s a small world.

Spent some of today wandering around the local park, trying to improve my macro skills. The afternoon was more successful, as I took my tripod with me.

There were a few shots came out slightly clearer or closer-up than this, however I really liked the colours of this shot. I’ll post a few more over the next few days, and you’ll see what I mean.

For you equipment geeks, this was taken using my Nikkor 70-210 f4-5.6, with a Cokin P103 +3 closeup filter. Settings were f/14 and 1/200 sec I think. The macro capability is quite impressive once the lens is stepped down past f/14 or so.

Great stuff.. those little bees are hard targets because they’re so busy they rarely stop in one place for long! When you see it like this you realise why they’re yellow – it’s pretty good camouflage!

The trick is to set up in one place, and wait, and wait, and wait.

Am hoping to get better over the next few weeks.

Admit it – you put superglue on the flower

Crikey, now there is an idea. Superglue. then come back in an hour.

No, sadly I just had a fair bit of patience…

Oh my. I don’t like ‘em! And that one is just too big, great picture though, it gave me a shiver down my spine!
