Backyard findings. These guys freak me out how they watch my every move while I am trying to get close. Shot with Olympus TG4. Settings f4.9, 1/100sec, iso1000, 18mm. Applied Topaz Adjust Spicify.
Using the light behind this dragonfly to showcase it’s beautiful lace-like wings.
Olympus TG-4, Microscope mode.
I believe this little guy is called a Click beetle. He doesn’t look happy having a camera shoved in his face. Oh well, I needed my weekly photo 🙂
Shot with Olympus TG4 on microscope mode. Settings were f4.4, 1/320sec, iso125 and 14mm.
My backyard never fails me for subjects. Just have to be patient. I loved how the bright sun made this little guy glow. Yes, I know you shouldn’t take photos in the bright sunlight. But, when you put shade over him he just didn’t seem to glow. So, I went with the bright sun shot. Cropped it down some. I loved the bokeh achieved by the foliage behind. Shot with the Olympus TG-4 on microscope mode. Used Clarity filter in Topaz Adjust followed by some slight dodge and burn around the head. Settings were f3.2, 1/320sec, 6mm and iso100.
Happy Clicking! 🙂
