Flagstaff Fall Color Part Four
More Fall images from the past few days. All images in this and past Flagstaff posts were edited on my Laptop so please forgive odd colors if you see any! Click on the Following to see previous posts: Part One, Part Two, Part Three.
A sure sign of Fall….Flying Milkweed seeds and dried Sunflowers. (Canon N)
Milkweed Seeds about to go forth and multiply! The high winds made seeds very challenging to capture. (Canon N)
I was pleasantly surprised to encounter a couple of butterflies!
Saytyr Comma and unidentified day-flying Moth. (Fuji X-E1)
Western Pygmy Blue. He was very cooperative no doubt because he was VERY cold! (Canon N)
Western Pygmy Blue captured with my Galaxy Smartphone. Not a great photo but I wanted to show perspective using my hand and the Aspen leaf. I had positioned the leaf to make focusing easier for the phone but I ended up loving it. Wish I had done it with the higher resolution camera!
Must include an Aspen Face, of course! Taken at Lockett Meadow. (Canon N)
An unusual pattern on this Aspen Leaf at Lockett Meadow. I need to stop collecting leaves! (Fuji X-E1
Lockett Meadow Aspen with a sun star. All you do is use a very tiny aperture to make the star. (Fuji X-E1
I’ve been having fun taking photos through a Glass Ball (I call it an Orb). I like holding the ball and thus having my fingers show in the images so it turned out to much more challenging than I thought. I held the ball in my left hand and either my Smartphone or Canon N in my right. Achieving auto focus did not always work but I ended up with quite a few winners and now I’m hooked!
I titled this one “I See Fall Color in our Future!” This was my first idea and the most difficult so far but mostly because of the wind. (Canon N)
