Weekly Photo Challenge: “Ephemeral”

  1. Wonderful photos – I like the pink blossom best and then the insect one. Do you use a tripod when taking this sort of photo? I have problems taking macro as the focusing is so precise and if anything moves it loses it. Maybe it is just a matter of taking an awful lot of photos?

  2. Beautiful photo of one of my favorite subjects. I hope to see and experience that show in another month or so!

  3. Annette, you and I share the same favorites <3
    The pink Crab Apple blossoms were shot with a Tameron 150mm – 600mm lens on a tripod.
    The white Pair blossom with the little insect was shot with a Nikon 60mm macro lens – hand held.
    The problems you experience with macro are also true for me when shots are hand held; and yes! A lot of photos is definitely a big plus.
    Whenever possible, I enjoy using my tripod.
    Your garden photos are lovely… I will pop back with some "likes."

  4. Yes, good eye, Ken. Those are blooms on a native Crab Apple growing in the riparian zone of our little wetland nature preserve 🙂

    Thanks for the welcome back! I may remain a bit “hit-and-miss” for another week or so. Been wonderfully distracted… our daughter needs some unexpected “nanny” support. Should be back on normal schedule in another week or so.Loving this special time with 7 month old granddaughter <3 🙂

  5. It is good to enjoy the little ones while we can, Jane. Much more important than blogging. Happy Easter! 😉 <3

  6. Thanks Jane, there is no doubt that a tripod is best for keeping things in focus. I wish someone would invent a really flexible tripod suitable for getting up close to plants on the ground. (Maybe they have and I haven’t found it yet.) I often think I will buy a monopod which might be better than hand held shots.

  7. On second thoughts I am not sure I would be able to hold it steady enough for really precise focussing. Our local garden club was going to hold a talk on photographing plants but unfortunately it was cancelled. Hopefully it will be rescheduled as using tripods was top of my list of questions.

  8. I suspect you are closer to that point in the year than I… hope these will brighten your winter days.

    (As for me, the spring blossoms could also ease a hot summer’s day in a few months…)
