Default A quiet Spot in the Japanese Garden

From yesterday, with the E-M5 and the 12-40mm f2.8 M. Zuiko.



It's almost like you can hear the Heron saying, "Too many humans and those fish are too darn big..."







The 40-150mm f2.8 at 150mm and f2.8, with a slight crop in to better fill the frame. Couldn't get physically closer..



at 150mm and f5.6..



And some backlit shots from early in the morning at the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens with the 12-40mm f2.8, before the place got crowded..

What a great set Greg, the first seven shots are outstanding.

The Gecko and the B&W shots are my favorites.

Thank you for sharing.

Marcelo

A really nice set of shots. Well done, Greg. It's also nice to see that you have some sunshine after all that rain.

P.S. just an FYI for some of you guys; that was not a gecko. Their eyes are different. That is an Anole lizard. They are very plentiful in my back yard.

Hey, Steven! Thanks. I bet there are some members of the Lizard family much larger than these guys crawling around in your area, LOL...

LOL. Yeah, you are right, Greg. Once in a while we get the big boys in the back yard. A few years ago I was out watering my flower garden and looked up o see this little 7 footer sunning himself.

Something about the way you process these gives a really nice depth between foreground and background. 1,3,7,9 especially show the different layers.

Excellent series! The Gecko is my favorite! Razor sharp at f/2.8!
