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

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.

More Water Lilies   1 comment

I had the opportunity to stop at the Mount Cootha Botanical Gardens, on the way to visit a friend on Sunday.

I was intending to do some more macro work, but as time was against me, only really managed to look around the pond.

I am starting to like photographing Water Lilies as much as Water Dragons, and had both to shoot here.

A couple of the Water Lilies photos

Taken with 7D and 70-200mm Lens.
