I could not resist! Perfect opportunity, but very challenging. Here’s 2 versions. I was trying to get the web, but when I did a longer exposure and used a flashlight to light the web, it came out good but the spider was out of focus. The breeze was moving the spider too much. I still like these though.
Got another bloom! This time I had fun playing with my tripod (my Manfrotto 055XPROB w/a Giottos MH 5001 head). I had my camera balancing over the balcony edge to get the bloom. Fun! I love my tripod! I will post a photo of me and my tripod in a bit on my Facebook Page if you are interested. That is not a great shot (night shot done with a cell phone camera- non-iphone! 🙂 )
I got it! I was ready for my Night Blooming Cereus this time. It looks like I have 2 more buds ready to bloom. These do seem kind of small, but I am assuming that it’s because the plants are in small containers. Of course I had to use my new 50mm f/1.4 lens! 🙂
Well, I missed getting the shot of the first bloom. Of course I saw it as I was running late out the door on my way to work this morning! I was not expecting it to bloom so quick! I am ready for the next one! Tripod- ready, camera settings- ready. Bloom #2, I am ready!!
