Citrus Man
Lens: Helios 40 Camera: K-5 IIs Photo Location: Desert ISO: 80 Shutter Speed: 1/6000s Aperture: F2 
Posted By: scratchpaddy, 12-08-2013, 03:26 PM

Since our climate is not conducive to snow, I decided to embrace the season with some local flora instead.



Unlike his northern cousins, Citrus Man is more than happy to bask in the sun. He's also an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. I should know; I ate him for breakfast this morning.

I love this picture. It's just sad that you had to eat your subject. Haha.

Thanks guy! Lean times in the desert call for desperate measures.

From the bokeh it appears Citrus man is conjuring up lots of Helios magic. Fun image.

Ouch, that's a harsh analogy. Try... like eating a gingerbread man, but more nutritious!

Whoosh! He looked pretty pleased with himself until the dog came over and gave him a sniff. Toppled right over. Maybe he was afraid of getting "marked"...
