Any photographers in the house?

Very nice! I love good cloud shots.

Lightroom can do panos? Interesting, I somehow didn't know that! How do you take the shots, do you have one of those special thingamajigs for your tripod to get the camera lens centered correctly? Or can Lightroom's pano procedure account for just a regular tripod setup?

Thanks!

For something quick like this where I don't really need a longer exposure, hand-held works fine. Otherwise yeah just a normal tripod, nothing special. There are 3 different Pano options in the dialog box, and I've generally had a pretty good result with one or another of them.

You can also bracket exposures and take a LOT of shots, and Lightroom will stitch together an HDR Pano.

Very cool, I think I'll give it a try and see how it goes. It's pretty nice that it can make such good panos even with handheld.

More backyard macro time. There's a hell of an ecosystem living in my partner's garden:

F*cking yellow jackets. Mantises are cool at least.

Here's a hawk.

Pretty!

Huh. This is interesting.

These aren't good photos but they are kinda fun. I would need a better telephoto lens to get decent wildlife photos. On these ones, I had to do a little digital zoom on some of them, and all the hummingbird ones are through a window.

We have a fox squirrel or two that live in the backyard. Super cute and fun. They seem to be pretty territorial and are very noisy and rambunctious in late morning and early afternoon. I put up a squirrel feeder for them and one of them tries to chase everything away.

We cleaned and filled a hummingbird feeder that was left at the house, and a pair of Anna's Hummingbirds instantly claimed the territory. I think there was another one that tried to come in and fight over it. We have another feeder to put up eventually. This is the male. When he's turned away from you, you can't hardly see any of the iridescent feathers.

When he's facing you, though, his pink feathers are GORGEOUS. Definitely has the quality of color like those birds of paradise in Planet Earth.

We put up a (hopefully) squirrel-proof bird feeder, and there are black-capped chickadees, juncos, stellar's jays, varied thrushes, nuthatches, flickers, and hopefully many more to be spotted.

Playing around with resolution. Having an LG OLED 4K HDR monitor is pretty crazy for messing around with photos.

Now that I'm vaxxed, I'm back at my office and hitting my old lunchtime walk:

Cawww!

I recently was able to pick up a used copy of the Fuji 80mm macro. After seeing the snow on the tree's outside this morning I just had to go out and grab some shots before it all melted.

Just doodling with some flowers. Blåsippa are growing like crazy in the garden.

Old camera's with a 1Ds mk III and a Sigma DP3 Merrill, but they still do the trick

I took a few pictures for work and this one is my favorite:

And the flower shots are nice too.
