Did you see it

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #146 – Focusing on the Details

Like all photographers I like to find a subject and get set to take the photograph doing all the usual things which becomes innate after a while. Position of the subject, rule of thirds perhaps, lighting, background noise and all those things that make your photo the fabulous one you want.

One thing I like is after the photo has been taken and you plug the camera in to download and get a surprise to find something else in the image while you were busy focusing on the detail. Lets see what we can find among these photos.

Did you see the insect before or after seeing the Dandelion?

I wonder if you saw the flower buds or the spider or the insects who may not have known the spider was there too first

Was your focus drawn to the flowers detail, the Native Stingless Bees or the tiny jumping spider?

Getting in close to focus on the detail

The yellow Alamanda flower or the Ghost Crab Spider first?

In among the Torch Ginger flower lurks another tiny spider

I was after a photo of the small Billy Bonkers Grevillea flower as the light was so good, I didn’t see the ants

Another ant on a flower that was missed until down loading

Did you see the leaf, verandah boards, butterfly wing or the ant moving the wing?

An ants work is hard going

I didn’t see the Dwarf Eastern Tree Frog as the water lily flower looked so good in the late afternoon light

Who was inside the flower?

I hope you enjoyed trying to find what can be found while you focus on the detail.

As we are travelling a bit, let’s take some music with us. This is an Aussie band called Fraternity. You may recognised the singer playing the recorder. It’s Bon Scott, the lead singer of ACDC when they first started out, before his time in ACDC.

A few special moments to share.

Having help when I really needed it while working under my car

Having chickens hatch

Having a critically endangered Regent Honeyeater visit my garden

Taking a super bad photo of a very shy and almost rare (in my area) Regent Bowerbird. One quick photo and it was gone.

Having a Eastern Yellow Robin come and sit on the back of a chair while you are having a bite to eat in the garden. He came around often at my besties old place. We called him Bobbin

Finding a Nobbi Lizard at one of my favourite places, the Raspberry Lookout, after the fires of the Summer of 2019

Discovering a Hakea flurolenta on my place for the first time. I haven’t seen it since those fires but hope it may return in time.

Discovering the delights of Paris and Venice for the first time
