Purple frills
Lens: DFA 150-450 Camera: K3 Photo Location: Canberra ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/500s Aperture: F8 
Posted By: RobG, 10-27-2019, 06:54 PM

I've no notion of what this flower is, other than to say that it's an Australian native and resembles an Hibiscus. It is at the Australian National Botanic Gardens in Canberra.

Thanks! It seems odd to be using the DFA 150-450 as a "macro" lens, but it's very sharp with great colour!

A well balanced shot which has more detail than one would expect in low light conditions.

I'm so jealous, have being trying to get shots like that for ages. Isn't it amazing what what sees when we get this close to nature. it's awesome!

Thank you! In this case I'm lucky enough to live close to the national Botanic Gardens that have plants from all over Australia and it's spring! I hope you can find some spring blooms in your part of the world!

Partly because I'm often too lazy to change lenses, partly because I can't always get close enough in the botanical gardens to use the DFA 100 macro, and partly because the DFA 150-450 is a great lens! Actually it's because I'm mainly after photos of birds and animals!

Thanks! The K3 combined with the DFA 150-450 gets a lot of shadow detail.
