I am probably way off on the ID of this small ground plant that I photographed today… ID corrections appreciated!
Anyways, this was the final shot I took today out of ~30 frames. I do often find that the last frame I shot, or next to last ends up being my favorite from the day. I guess I decide to call it a day after I think I’ve made 1 or 2 quality capures on a local day in the field. When doing nature photography, of course, I may hope to get 8-12 distinct keepers per day.
Initially I took photos of this plant from my tripod as I often do. At first, I experimented with slow shutter speeds to have the leaves blow through the frame. Not being satisfied with the results, I then lowered my shutter speed from 15s to 2s and simply handheld my camera and let the small effects of “hand shake” do what they might.
