I was out taking pictures of flowers in the Botanical Gardens today. It was over-cast so I was trying several different things with wireless flash when a volunteer assistant turned up to check things out.

He examined my home-made diffuser (two pieces of matte finish mylar) but didn't think much of it and left right away. I think he was disappointed that the flash wasn't edible.

Harriet, those are two really neat shots. Cute subject and sharp as a tack.

He just stole your patent rights to that diffuser.

Great shots.

right place, right time, great detail in the little feela.

He didn't hang around to help you much (here it comes ...) he's not much help, just as well he works for peanuts! (sorry :roll

ROTFL!

Simon - love your punch-line! This fellow (as you can tell) is very well fed. The only thing I had tothink aboutwas his speed and the minimum focus of the lens (I was using the DA*50-135, not a macro lens).

Jim - he can have the rights to the diffuser - including the writing on the mylar that says "put file c://project/RFI152.tif here". I'm not completely happy with the mylar - it passes too much light. Maybe I should try some with more writing on it? Or just get myself a proper diffuser.

Thanks for the compliment, Glenn. This seems to be the extent of my "wildlife" pictures at the moment.
