I haven't posted any images for awhile, mainly because the weather has been so blah, I just haven't been out. Last weekend I took the camera out and looked around and found some life coming out of the snow. These are Smooth Prairie Star wildflowers and they are coming out of the ground by the 1000's. In 2-3 more weeks I should be able to post some actual flowers. I thought the change from Winter to Spring is a good thing to look at, for me anyway- Bruce

And I saw the very first cranes yesterday on my way home from work. This year I'm gonna nail one... with the camera, of course.

I finally was able to get out and take some shots today. Its been warmer all week and the snow is gone and the wildflowers are starting to bloom. I was able to try out my M50mm-F4 macro I bought on Ebay last Falland my new LoweproSlingshot pack. The Slingshot 100 works wonderful and you don't even know it's there when you get down to take flower pictures. It doesn't bounce around at all as you amble along. As you can see the M50 macro is a keeper. The next couple of months will be a busy shooting time for me- Bruce

The first image is of a Smooth Prairie Star in bloom. Only a week has passed since I took the picture of the snow above and things are coming to life. It was overcast and cloudy, so my depth of field is not quite as good as on a sunny day. Theseare the first variety of Prairie Stars to bloom in early Spring. I had to shoot at iso 400.



This picture is the first Lomation to bloom in the Spring. This is aCanby's Desert Parsley and looks nice and healthy as the ground is wet and the Spring winds have not started blowing yet.

Lovely pictures - the prairie star is nice the way it is, with the small DOF. They look like pretty flowers.
