Welcome. This photo was taken on the Robert Louis Stevenson Trail GR70 in France. The donkey was borrowed from some other walkers for the picture which was taken on a TZ20 compact.

    Missed this stage of growth last year, a day makes all the difference.

    I find the animal tracks interesting. Some look like bicycle tyre tracks but probably snakes pushing against the sand. We used to get a TV programme, here, called the Bush Tucker Man. He was in the Australian army and it was his job to investigate bush tucker and survival methods. He wore a felt hat with a dent low at the front rising to tall at the back like a shark fin in profile.

    You don't appear to be short of light to make your photos. Smile

    Thanks for sharing the local information.

  • Chrysler Building with Parachute.

    The seeds look like skyscrapers a little like the Chrysler Building with its ridged upper floors.

    Good job. I use this lens too. It will take a full set of extension tubes which doubles the magnification. A problem with the extension tubes is that there is no exif information when you come to check the photos later so it is impossible to know when they were used unless there is some scale in the view. A notebook or a voice recorder might be the answer. I need to check if an initial flash will stun a insect long enough to take a second shot, bees never stay still long enough and mostly have their heads down. This is a great face to face shot. I use a flat sheet of expanded polyethylene closed cell foam A4 size fixed to the SB900 flash with a couple of elastic bands. With the flash pointing forward this slightly floppy sheet acts a canopy and deflects the flash down beyond the lens thus avoiding lens shadow on the subject. It is all very portable.

    Usually think of wide angle in terms of landscape panorama in the horizontal sense but there is also a vertical sense which is great for skies with attitude and for lower picture detail such as breaking waves.
