Day 4 of Nature Photography Challenge

I nominate Sherry Hughes Remaly to post her nature images for the next seven days and nominate someone to do the same.

Some of you may have seen this posted last year as “My Weekly View”. I thought it was a good candidate for my Nature Photography Challenge that I’m posting it again.

week 30

I went to the Frelinghuysen Arboretum last week thinking I would shoot some macro shots of flowers. I found once I got there and started walking around nothing inspired me. I finally found a honey bee digging for pollen in a flower (that will be week 31), so I took some shots of that. When I looked up to the right I saw all these white petals with yellow centers so I decided to take a few shots. My main problem with shooting right now is my hands are very shaky so it is hard for me to hold my camera steady. Lugging a tripod around is not something I feel like doing unless I feel it will be worth the effort. In order to get a sharper image, I am using a wide aperture and a high ISO setting which contributes to more noise (grain) in the image, especially with the camera I used to shoot this. Cropping the image doesn’t help either but I think for this one I can get away with the noise.
