Week 25 – Robin

RedDragonfly

My husband and I headed out to Viera Wetlands today, but it was closed and too hot today to walk. Click ponds was open, but no birds… only some dragonflies, but this Scarlet Skimmer is a pretty subject. They seemed to be extra red today. Maybe it was the heat. ūüėÄ

Used a Canon 6D and 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS lens. Settings were 1/320 sec, f/6.3; ISO 100.

Young Assassin Bug

This guy is really tiny. ¬†Had to look hard among the leaves. ¬†This is a very young assassin bug. ¬†Shot with my Olympus TG4 on microscope mode. ¬†Settings were ISO800, 18mm, f4.9 and 1/400secs. ¬†Started my processing in Adobe Lightroom (cropping etc…) then finished processing in Adobe Photoshop. ¬†Trying to learn how to use Lightroom. ¬†All the photography pros keep saying how Lightroom was a game changer for them.

Happy Clicking!

Hanky Panky or Get a Room! or Do you mind?

So many titles to choose from.  Roaming around the yard of the house we are renovating when I stumbled upon these two little love birds. This is a photo of two air potato beetles getting it on.  At one point the bottom one looked like it was trying to knock the top one off.  Processed this photo in Lightroom.  First time using Lightroom to tweak my photos.  Opened it up in Photoshop to sharpen it some more.  Used my Olymput TG-4 on microscope mode.  The settings were iso500, 18mm, f4.9 and 1/400sec.
