p.1 #1 · Fall Garden Variety #1


Spent about 1 hour at the gardens at the Massabesic Audubon Center today. I can't believe the stuff that is still going strong. I will probably post another 2 sets when I get done editing the rest. I got quite a kick out of the bumblebee's going from flower to flower....they are so slow right now. All shots manual focus with my SMC-A 50/1.7.

Thanks Birdie. I was really trying to pay attention to my composition more on these. It's something I am always trying to improve upon.

Great detail in #1
Nice isolation in #2, sweet bokeh on BG. Not sure about the amount of space above the flower on this one, and might consider a squeeze in from the left too? Actaully I could see a tight shot of bee and flower here, they are excellent looking
#3 Wow! Pop and color and I like it!
#4 a litte to busy for me
#5 sure do like the comp, maybe a bit higher angle for a bit more flower but a very pleasing image to see

Nice work, nice focusing, great colors!

Thanks for the nits and crits Karl. I agree with you on #2..I re-edited it and cropped it a bit tighter to show more flower/bee. I hope you like it better now. I am glad you like the color and pop in #3. I did not find #4 too busy but I can certainly understand how it could be seen that way. I also agree with you on #5...I need to see if I have any other shots that may provide a better angle. Thanks...and more to come.

Some good looking bee shots Scott. #4 is my fave, even though it is bee-less.

Super work Scott! The first one is sooo sharp and pretty Your approach to these all vary and I think they all work wonderfully. Not only is the garden still going strong but the photographer is too

Thanks Tim. I think I was able to get so many bee images because they were so darn slow! I appreciate the comments.
