Hi,

during my lunchbreak jogging, I came across the first crocusses in the gardens.
So, I went back taking my G1 and a Micro-Nikkor 105/2.8 for some spring shots :biggrin:

Here's some !

I love crocuses! They are truly the a sign of spring. Here in NY, we're not there yet. They're predicting snow tonight. But there are signs. I heard Red Winged Black Birds singing this afternoon and saw a pair of swans making plans for the future.

It was either the washing out drying, the first time for.... a long long time, or this crocus. You all got the crocus, I got to do the ironing.

G1+14-45mm

Crocusses seem to attract a lot of insects.
Here's some close-ups with the Micro-Nikkor 200/f4.5 on the G1.

This lens has the advantage that you can keep a sufficient distance from the subject, and not disturb the insects ...

Narcisses today, from a walk in the park, yesterday.
The small white dog is our 15 year old Jack Russell Terrier, Snoopy. He massively enjoyed this first walk after winter !

Hey Raf, i really like 'i have a visitor no.3' awesome! I'm not a honey fan, but i reckon the honey from those flowers would be pretty nice.

How far away from the bee were you? Sure must have been like a sniper sneaking around otherwise they'd take off.

Hi,

Thanks for your comment !

I must have been around the minimum focusing distance of the lens, which is 71 cm. This 200mm Micro-Nikkor is absolutely ideal for shooting insects, since you can stay away far enough not to disturb the insects.

I wondered how long it would take you to spot it BB :biggrin:

I've had one for a few days in preparation for Olympus Photo Safari Group events... if you have any questions I'll do my best to answer, and I will do another series of vids for setting up the E-PL1 (there are some key differences to the settings, to get optimum useability).

Cheers

Brian
