From this week
Lens: Tamron 90mm macro Camera: K-x 
Posted By: miss_alexx, 05-23-2010, 05:06 PM

I took some shots this week that I wanted to share with you. C&C welcome!

Yesterday I got very lucky. 5 or 6 butterflies were flying in my backyard but they never stopped flying... So I opened my hand. I had to be patient but they came in my hand. I had enough time to get some shots. Here is one.



Friday I saw some beautiful tulips.



And today a beautiful flower. Here is the inside.



More recent photos on my flickr photostream.

These are all very nice - for some reason, I really dig the tulip. Well done.

Did you shot the butterfly one-handed? If so, I'm impressed. Mine would've been just way too blurry, lol.

Great pics!

I especially like the third picture, nice colors!

Yes it was one-handed. I normally use manual focus with my macro lens, but since I had only one hand, I had to use AF.

Thanks for the comments

Very nice shots, but the first one is the most impressive, IMHO (even more so since it was shot one-handed!)
