    The Buds of Spring

    My goal was to get sharp images but with good bokeh. Our temperatures here are about 20F higher than normal for this time of the year and I suspect that as a result the trees are budding sooner than normal. Here are three that caught my eye as I wandered through the Ribbonwalk Nature Preserve a few days ago.

    Did you ever forget to check your camera settings and go merrily on your way snapping images? Apparently that is what I did here. I left the camera's ISO set to 1600 and as I was shooting in Ap so I didn't notice. Duh!

    and yes, the first two are focus stacking images.

    The next one in the set was shallow enough that at F/8, focus stacking was not required.

    I like the last one best.

    But in the overall scheme of things shooting nature up close can be quite a challenge.

    Thanks Bobo, it's my favorite as well, mainly because it is more unusual than most.
