Still in Bow Valley Provicial Park. Could not help but take my macro lens along and try some more DOF stuff. Only bad thing was that I found out in a hurry that WIND is not your friend when you shoot macros. So I will have to come up with some device to block the moving air ....

then I waited for the visitor to fly away ... did not take long, musta been my lack of deodorant :headslap:

There's a clamp on device you can buy for tripods that holds plants from moving around.

Matt K. the first and the third are the best for me because of the very good perspective..

Ummm ... isn't that like 'cheating'? :angel::evil2: I was more thinking aloing the lines of some flexible tent poles and clear plastic sheets to put around the scene, so I still get the light, but keep the wind out. Or maybe even just an umbrella?

Nice set - I really dog the perspective in shot 3 as well!

Very nice! Beautiful colours and definition on 3! But I love 2 as well.

It's a wonderful set with lovely colours. I really like how #3 contrasts with #2 in that one angle gives you a beautiful blue background and the other gives you lots of greens.
