MACRO MONDAYS -- Park Flower Close Up 2


Blogger micki said...

Camera - Konica Minolta 70
Film - Kodak Max ISO 100
Shutter Speed - 1/60
Aperture Setting - f-11 Aperture Mode
Lens - Sigma 105mm macro/portrait lens
13mm, 21mm, and 31mm extension tubes
Scanning Method - My scan from my cheap little hp officejet 5510v all-in-one copy/scanner/faxer/printer

Thanks for the help with yesterday’s bird identification. After looking up cormorant on the internet, that is definitely the bird I saw. ag mentioned the birds spreading their wings out to dry due to their lack of oil glands. I took a couple shots of the cormorant I saw early yesterday morning doing just that. Mystery solved, and now I can move on!

A couple of months ago, I posted a horizontal versionof these stamen from a flower at the park. Now that I’ve been going through all of my photos, I found this vertical shot of the same flower, which I like better than the earlier post. So, before I file this shot away, I thought I’d scan it and post it for today.

I remember the landscape version which was good but this is better in showing the eager curves of the stamens.
