Spider Lilies

By ChiliMan
I took my mum for a dental appointment yesterday and brought along my A430.

Since I got the A630 at the beginning of 2007 the A430’s been not used too much. Which ain’t fair ‘cos – pixel count aside and lack of manual control – it handles light better than the A630 and has Super Macro which the latter lacks.

Anywho, here’s something from the A430.

After I dropped off my mum, my dad and I went to a nearby hospital for walksies in their butterfly garden. Didn’t get any butterflies but I got this.

Hope y'all like these spider lilies.

This one’s for Robin.

This is a great composition Andrew. Love the shapes - looks like spiders legs in the front of the flower.
