Mole , your shots are always so nice. Could you share with me what lenses you carry with you as you are traveling about the park? And are your shots usually tripod mounted? thanks bock

Bock - Thanks for your kind words. Lenses and such brought depend on length of trail and what other equipment I must carry. If there is enough room, usually take along DA 16-45, Sigma 105 macro and Sigma 70-300. If space is limited, will just take the Tamron 18-250. Usually try to fit in a small tripod, although don't always use it...

the first toad. although, i think that is because of the background color more than the pose of the toad. i think if the toad were sitting the second way on the moss, that would be the best. you need to get a pet toad, a train it to pose for photos for you...
the mountain photos make me want to go home!! there are mountains in chattanooga, but not like that.

and, i missed the second page of photos! i want you to train a dragon hunter dragonfly as well, so you can get a better photo of that! i like the photo simply because of what it is, although, like you said, technically it could have been a little better.
do you know why it is that it is always darker above a rainbow than below it?

Hey!! I really like all the dragonfly pictures (yes, I know there's only one on this thread) they are all so different and beautiful, and almost graceful I know that sounds silly.

I like the contrast in the beetle and the wild sunflower. And I never saw a passionflower that up close before- it looks so cool!!

Those are great butterfly shots. I like the first one and the last one best- something about the angles in the first one, and the last one the contrast and how gorgeous/maybe glorious? that last butterfly is.

I like the second toad shot best because of the focus on his face more. Toads always look so serious, haha. (I heard he almost became a snack I guess I would look pretty serious then, too!)

I really like your last shot of the firetower, too. I can't really say why but it sticks with me.

I guess that is all for now... See ya later!

Bock - thanks! have been working on steadying - breath control, stance, etc... Sometimes it works.

Vole - Perhaps you can come help me train some toads! (And some dragon hunters too!) I saw another dragonfly yesterday (called a Black Shouldered Spiny Leg) catch a butterfly, but he wouldn't pose well either. We need your "critter training" skills here! And no, I do not know enough about the physics of light to answer your rainbow question. Sorry...

BlueSky - Thanks for all your kind, helpful & specific comments. I really appreciate the feedback!
