I was trying to get close up on these flowers from a bush at the edge of our property when this little guy decided he wanted his picture taken. I didn't notice the other little fellows until I came in to process.

Wickedly good Leigh. You are really showing what that CP is capable of. Sharp, saturated, well exposed. The fly is just icing on the cake (so to speak....;-)).

Leigh,

Nice pictures indeed. In #1, if I may have a suggestion, with PS, replace all those white flowers and leaves protruding from the edges and the red stem with a black background, make the crop a bit wider to the left and you get a beautiful S-shaped flower picture enlighted by a touch of life (the insects).

#2 is well composed with the 2 diagonal lines of flowers framing the insect. I think if the insect is lighter on a darker background and if its eyes color is more vivid, it will pop out.

Congratulations :!: :!:

No tripod...Just me wobbly arms! lol :lol: I'm hopefully getting a tripod soon. Patrick was telling me about one that is supposed to be lightweight that he's going to order for me. I'm looking forward to it since I know it will help.
Patrick actually took some shots, although I'm not sure what he got. He's just been so busy that I doubt he's had time to process anything. Hopefully he'll get some stuff up this week...I'll see if I can give him some time tonight or tomorrow night to work on it.

Cheers!

Wonderful shots, Leigh. It's great to see a CP produce such vivid shots :D...too bad I didn't spring for the 8800.

Isn't it nice we can get shots that are great w/something as simple as a CP?!!! I was fortunate in that Patrick suprised me w/the 8800! He hadn't even told me he had ordered it. It just showed up on our doorstep 2 days before we left for our vacation back in March. I have thouroughly enjoyed it....In fact, my avatar is a shot I took w/it at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm and Rookery on our vacation. Not too shabby if I do say so myself! :lol:

Thanks for looking!
