Spring On The Forest Floor

These flowers, called Spring Beauties, come up toward the end of March and only last for a couple of days.  They are very tiny, only as large as an average thumbnail.
 These photos were taken with a Nikon F4 film camera using Kodachrome 64.  105mm lens, tripod, shot at ISO 80.   Scanned on an Epson 3200.

Sunrise Blooms And One Bug

Took a walk down the block to see a wide array of lilies and other blooms and one temporary houseguest in the form of a praying mantis.

Mother Natures Spring Finery

Kauffman Memorial Gardens never disappoint... Beautiful day.
Just took one lens today. 105mm macro... various apertures, all ASA 200. I generally shoot flowers in the sun with exposure compensation of -2/3 stop to avoid blown highlights... which can almost never be recovered.

Spring In The Gardens

Went to Kauffman Gardens for the first time this year on Saturday... what follows are shots of natures current attractions. Skip to the very end to see the reason I was working there. :)
All images taken with the D3 and 105mm macro lens (except the very last one which was the 70-200mm zoom) varying apertures and ASAs... all hand held.

Miss Amber needed some shots for a pageant she's entered this June.... she was voted "Most Beautiful" out of 15 girls in her last pageant outing. She'll be a brand new graduate in just two weeks.
