Default Lunch at the Park Part 1 - critters

I'm lucky enough to work very close to a botanical garden. The weather has been almost summer-like the last few days, so I went and spent my lunch hour there. All taken with FZ35, straight out of the camera, just cropped.


#1 Butterfly and friend. It was quite windy so I'm surprised this came out as focused as it did. Thank you sun!





#2 Robin. I don't know what tree this is, but they were eating those berries like there's no tomorrow!





#3 another Robin





#4 Young grasshopper - wings are still very short




#5 Ladybug

Hi Saly, did you use spot focus on the robin in the tree ?

Pat - yes, I have my camera set to spot focus pretty much 100% of the time. I do change the spot meter from time to time depending on the subject.

Just saw this thread... these are fantastic photos saly! No way I could pick just 1 for a favorite. Did you use a tripod/monopod for these?
