This solitary wildflower portrays a sense of loneliness as it sways with the wind. Capturing it was difficult due partly to the nature of my macro lens (which required me to zoom in to 300mm, thus every slight movement from the subject as well as the photographer was amplified several times). I didn't do too well with this shot, but it was a great learning experience.

For all you budding macro photographers out there, remember to use a high aperture setting (in the 11s or so) or you're gonna end up with a shallow DOF like I have here.

If there's one thing I really love about this photo, it's the bokeh. The complete lack of distractions in the background helps the flower to stand out from the photo.

I promise to do better as I practice more. :)

While trying to shoot flowers with my new macro-capable lens, I stumbled upon this moth feeding on one of the wildflowers growing nearby.

Edit: It's a Skipper Butterfly as pointed out by Andy P

Colour Me Yellow

I got home early today and decided to take a stroll around my neighbourhood. I brought out my camera with a Sigma 70-300mm APO DG Macro lens to try catch some macro shots. One of the photos I brought home with me was this catch of a yellow flower growing wild.

Elvis Lives

Well now that hairdo really looks plasticky ... oh, maybe because it IS plastic. LOL!

My uncle's house is a favourite photography spot for me, due to the fact that he has the most lovely orchids I have ever seen. A not-so-ideal weather and slight wind made shooting quite difficult. Not to mention the fact that the macro feature in my lens is only available between the 200mm and 300mm range. That means any slight shake of the hands would result in a blurred photo.

This is not one of my better efforts, which means I'll be practising more flower shots soon. In the meantime, this will just have to do. :)

Gone Golfing

A close-up of a golf ball lying on a patch of grass. This was one of many other experiments with a new Sigma 70-300mm APO lens, which features a 1:2 macro mode between the 200mm and 300mm zoom range.
