Colour co-ordinated - Augmented Irises
Lens: K-3 Camera: Sigma 70 macro Photo Location: Whitney, Ontario, Canada ISO: 800 Aperture: F6.7 
Posted By: normhead, 06-13-2014, 11:40 AM

K-3 SIgma 70 macro 7.1 ISO 640 , APerture prioirty, all images taken at over 1/000 second.

I was out with the dogs, that darn puppy has to pee every hour, when I spotted this swallow tail in the garden. I've been pretty much house bound, but it looked like it might be a photo opportunity, not to mention the sun hasn't been out for the last two days.











And a few other insects got captured, just because they were there.

A great series, very colourful and well focussed. The third one almost appears 3D when looking at it on my laptop.

Thanks for commenting, i'd love to take credit for the focus, but it's all K-3 AF with centre point focusing.

Nice shots Norm, the combination of the K-3 and the Sigma 70 really make the colours pop.

Thanks guys.... I only bought the Sigma because Tess stole my 90 macro and wouldn't give it back, but I'm getting quite used to it. It's heavier, and shorter, but I still like it as a walk around the garden type lens, and have even start leaving it on for walks in the woods.

My wording wasn't the greatest in my post but what I hoped I was saying was that there was an effective use of depth of field. Regardless, a great series, well captured.

Thanks, I got lucky, I ran in and got the camera and really didn't check the setup when I got out and took pictures, until it flew away. At which point I realized I hadn't checked the settings... it was set to 7.1, I don't low why, I never shoot at 7.1, and ISO 640, which is my goto moving wildlife ISO. Things could have been much worse.
