Spring Flowers

Follow up here.

Spring is now approx 4 weeks old and here are some more pictures from the neighborhood.

I hope we continue to see these and more flowers blossoming in the season, specially since Mercury News has declared drought. My son is a big "water saver" following three steps:

  • 2 minute shower instead of regular 10 minutes (less time and water, both precious at this stage)
  • Not opening the tap fully when washing hands and washing them quickly.
  • Planning to get less number of plants from Home Depot and even those that need less water

He even pasted a note in our living room and asked all his friends to save water. Drop by drop, we will all get through it.

I plan to post more tips on water saving in subsequent entries.

Spring Blossoms

Spring is still 2 weeks away (starting Mar 21) but blossoms are showing up for past few days now. Finally this morning I spent some time this morning in backyard and neighborhood taking some pictures. All of these pictures were taken between 9:00-10:00am, when the sun was bright, using Macro mode of Nikon D80.

The macro mode is good but is not able to focus if the subject is closer than 3-4 inches. I hope to spend some more time over the coming weekends exploring this mode and share some more pictures. 

Here are some flower photography tips:

Please leave a comment if you have any other tips on nature photography.

UPDATE: Follow the discussion on these pictures in Nikonians Forum.
