Trying to insert an image from my Picasa Web photo album. Hope this works.

This is just a tiny little flower from some sort of weed in my back yard. Haven't had much else to photograph around here lately.

Well... that didn't seem to work. Funny that it looked fine in the preview.
Here it is anyway.

A very nice little flower. I know what you mean about finding something to shoot. I guess I am just not imaginative enough.

Thanks Jerry & Donna.

I saw your little "ditch weed" flower, Donna.
It's surprising when you get down to the macro level that even though things are smaller, there is no less detail... sometimes more.

I recently took a few pics of a tiny little fly, no bigger than a match head. Only after downloading the pictures to the computer did I realize that the fly was feeding on an even smaller little bug. It's amazing how much of the world we don't see that's right under our feet.

Thanks for the nice comments!

Looks like it worked very well. Nice smooth background in the shot.

tcook,

Thanks. You may be able to tell if you look close enough that there is quite a bit of PP done on that background. Sometimes I go a little overboard with it. :?

Hey Mick, hows it going. Nice shot on the flower. Is that just the camera or did you use a macro lens?

Don,

I'm pretty sure I used the DCR-250 for this shot, but wasn't at full zoom. The EXIF info shows it was taken at 351mm.
I should pay more attention to these things, but I'm usually switching between the 150 and 250 quite often when shooting macro.

Nice shot, and with a dcr250 realy good in focus. and I don't mind the pp you did on the background, don't see it even after you mentioned it. - Ronny
