Elizabeth said to tell Mr. Tom she will be careful but she really likes to get close to animals. She loves close ups. :|(As for me the Dad, I'm with you Tom!):G
Elizabeth also said,
Mr. Nick, Thank you! I do have a question for you. Will setting the camera to -2/3 help keep the picture from being to bright like 1, 2, and 3 are on some of the leaves?

setting the exposure factor to -2/3 will indeed reduce blown-out highlights, but the pictures you've taken, frankly, don't need it. you need to be cautious, too, since setting the EV down will also darken shadows, and you might lose some detail in areas that aren't so bright. you can usually reduce hightlights a bit in post processing, which would be my first choice for the images you posted.

very nice pictures, by the way! Fox, you might explain that it's "birds and bees", not "bees and bees"... :blah:

Oh I knew that one was going to come up:lol: Elizabeth has gone to bed but I will pass this information to her. The camera info that is:? That is a good point about getting things to dark. I knew we could do something about the blown highlights in post, She (and Dad) were both wonder if pushing down the EV would have helped, but as you pointed out that might have lost some detail in the dark areas. Many thanks to you squirl033
