Bird Shooter’s Flower

Posted in

This is what I got when I used a bird lens on a flower from about 20 feet.  It looked pretty out in the field all by its lonesome.

    1. Thanks for the nice comment, Carolyn! I doubt I’ll be getting into flower photography anytime soon, though. I’m still working on birds!

  1. Who needs a macro lens Dennis when you have a 500mm. See you had your ISO up for early morning, so at 1/1250th you weren’t taking any chances with the flower making any sudden moves !!! (joke). All the best, Tony.

    1. Ha! Tony, it’s interesting you mentioned the settings because I almost talked about them in the image information. When I came across the flower I was set up for birds and just took the flower shot. I could have saved a little noise by adjusting SS and ISO for sure! But the wind was blowing a bit so maybe it’s a good thing I didn’t change the settings. Thanks for the comment!
