Hover Flys in the Garden ( Roma Street Gardens)   Leave a comment

A series of Hover Fly shots from my recent visit to Roma Street Parklands.

It took a bit of time and stalking to capture these with the shorter 60mm focal length, then the 100mm I am used to.

All taken with 7D and 60mm canon Macro lens.

Cheers Dave

A Bunch of Flowers – Candids   2 comments

Okay, it would have been easey to shoot the whole bunch of flowers, and they looked very pretty, but there was no fun in that.

So here are some “Candids” from a bunch of flowers.

A random Butterfly   Leave a comment

We were out the other week, scouting locations for a Portrait shoot, and this Butterfly flew across the path, stopped only for a minute, enabling me to quickly snap a photo, and it was gone.

Not the best Butterfly photo, I have taken, and he looks a little battered, but I still like it a lot, and felt the need to share.

Cheers Dave

Beautiful Dead Roses   Leave a comment

Most people  like to see fresh flowers, and they can be very colourful and bright.

These started out like that, but then began to fade, and I saw a new beauty in them.

I love the browning of the edges of the petals,the pastels colours and the new shapes as the petalsstart to  droop.

Taken with 7D and Canon 60mm and 100mm macro ( non IS, not the L series 100mm lens I usualy use) lenses

A common bird on an exotic flower   1 comment

A couple of weeks ago, I went out to Mount Cootha Botanical Gardens, and captured this Noisy Miner (Manorina melanocephala) , quite a common bird, but I think it contrast well with this tropical flower.

What do you think?

Hover Fly – Family Syrphidae   4 comments

Another series of Photos from my walk through Roma Street Parklands in Brisbane during the week.

This time a Hover Fly.

Love these little guys, and they are well behaved in “hovering”, giving you a chance to find focus while they are in flight.
