    Buds

    Quite liked the wheel-like appearance of these buds and grabbed a couple of shots.

    In hindsight should have waited to see if some insect would land on one.

    Comments etc always welcomed and appreciated.

    Lovely shots Bobo, very structural plant...bracken?

    I might crop the second in from the right but that's just me.

    Thanks Sharon.

    Absolute ID idiot here, no idea what it is.

    Considered quite a few cropping options for #2 but wanted to keep the X and the reverse curved plant in background. Also the "\" part of the X is a branch off the tree to the right so it needed something to anchor with.

    I really need to correct my target oriented approach and look more at the surroundings and how they fit with the target. But sometimes I forget.

    Better take your lunch with you. And from my experience, wait, wait then wait some more; then when some action arrives, get flustered and mess up the one and only potential shot.

    The first one works fine. I would also try a crop of the second one; but I think I would crop quite a bit tighter, on the top and both sides.

    I know what you mean...I have a wee mantra of 'choose your background' that I chant as I click.

    I have lost a few good shots to that strange orange/ blue 'thing' in the background that I swear was not there when I took the shot but is alarmingly clear when I load up the picture.

    They are really cool shots Bobo!

    Thanks Geoff, I was about to say something like that but you jumped me on that.

    Yes Sharon, that is how it is. Need to train the brain - foreground/background/target, target/background/foreground, background/target/foreground, etc etc etc. until it becomes a habit. And when all is done - the target disappears.
