  1. You have been my introduction to this plant, and I’m fascinated. Certain aspects of their morphology make them seem almost predatory. They are really lovely–but I can’t look at the first one without thinking of a lizard spearing out its tongue to capture some small, unsuspecting prey. Beautiful portraits, Mike.


      • Ehrrrr. sooner or later.
        Am going into hospital for chest surgery next Thurs 25th and probably won’t be able to carry any weight or camera for a few weeks..
        Perhaps I will set my heavy duty tripod up inside beforehand and find something around my flat and/or little garden to shoot a macro in the following 2-3 weeks.
        Have been going to the zoo as much as possible to store up plenty of images for editing & uploading, but it would be nice to have a change from birds and animals.
        Bought a new bird feeder for my balcony ledge, but have had no ‘peckers’ yet – might hang it on the tree next to my window to try & lure some bird life close to home.
        I recently read somewhere or other about turning the image stabilization off when using a tripod ?
        Any thoughts on this?


      • Yes, Vicki, you must switch your image stabilisation OFF when using you camera on a tripod. I hope you get back on your feet quickly after your operation. Practising with your lens in your flat and garden is a very good idea. 🙂
