Bees in the park ( Roma Street Parklands)   1 comment

We had a Macro meetup on Saturday morning at Roma Street Parklands, having done a quick Macro explore the day before with my Macro Lens, thought I would try something different and chase Bees in flight with the 70-200.

Had various levels of success, but have ideas for when I attempt it again in the future ( probably wait until spring, as it was quite cool and there was few  Bees out and about).

Possibly my favourite – Take Off – Lifting off from the flower.

But back to basics, and to demonstrate the learning curve.

The best of my worst ones ( I would have deleted 20 worse then this).

You can tell my the noisy background, how much post processing was required to try and sharpen this Image to get it to this level.

Ok this one getting a little better.

Getting more keepers as I refined my technique.

A little more work required, to get the images, I would be totally happy with.

Cheers Dave

 

 

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

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.

Blue Rutilia Fly – Rutilia (Neorutilia) simplex   3 comments

I had the opportunity earlier in the week to get to the Parklands before work.

I saw this Blue Fly, who stayed still long enough for me to get a couple of decent photos.

I have a few other “bug photo” I got on the day, which hopefully will post soon.

Cheers Dave
