Up Close Along The Trail

Below, Red Cup Fungus.  Likes to grow on the woodland floor.  Very tiny; smaller than your pinky nail. 
                         Spider was hiding in the thistle bloom awaiting the unsuspecting bee.

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.

Short trek for photos... back yard blooms 
Rose and visitor. 
      All taken with the Nikon 70-300mm lens which has remarkable close-focusing capabilities.

                                    Backyard phlox ... the stalk variety... in full summer finery.

My Favorite Place ( yet again)

 Trying out the new camera.   Last new one was five years ago.  I like to take the new one and do shoots I've done before to see if operationally things have change much.   They haven't... except I have to be much steadier with a higher pixel count.    Kauffman Gardens beckoned today.   It was suppose to be sunny all day but clouds were the norm when I arrived this morning.  

 All shots taken with the Nikon D800.  Closeups were with the Nikon 105mm Macro, wide angles with the Nikon 14-24mm, and medium shots were with the Nikon 70-200mm.  Most all were at ASA 800 to allow for very high shutter speeds as I was hand-holding everything.
Very first picture is multiple images (5) stitched together in Photoshop.

 Love the detail in the new camera.   It has a 36 megapixel, full-sized sensor which means medium format quality in a 35mm body.   It also means it doesn't like camera shake.

 Above, a duck dropped in.... literally.
