New Friend, Nacogdoches TX
I made a new friend at the SFA Arboretum yesterday. I stopped in for a quick shoot before dinner and found this little guy on these red azaleas. I guess we have the same taste in color! I also saw a little gray snake slither away at one point, marking the first snake I’ve seen since moving to East Texas in August. I hope it doesn’t become a regular occurrence, but I’m going to start wearing hiking boots instead of sandals just in case!
For most of my flower photos I’ve been using the Canon EF 135 f/2 L series lens. It was one of my first lenses and I still love shooting with it. I like to use it for portraits whenever I have the space and it was also really useful at the wedding I assisted Sarah Williams with last week. So I’m a little torn about buying the Canon EF 100 L series macro lens since it’s so close in focal length. I’ve gone this long without a macro maybe I can go a little longer!
Critiques are always welcome.
