Non-macro shots on a macro outing...

Well, without a macro lens, I walked around, distracting LordMint from taking his macro shots and we both saw...

Is that a hornbill?

A hornbill! Well, he had his 100-400mm so he was busy snapping away. I had an 85mm so this is the best I could do :(

Singular beauty

So, I had to search for a bigger subject, and the lily was too far away. But then the light was so interesting that I gave it a go as well.

Mini dragon

Then, of course, the macro shooters started shooting macro. I didn't wanna be left out so I also tried. But can't get close enough :( But I love the bokeh though :D

Standout..

And before I went home, I spotted this flower which well, got to shoot la. Nothing fantastic but thought the flower managed to make itself stand out.

And thats all for this week!

Nah.. it's all good. i hardly shoot seriously during those big outings.. 1 or 2 compulsory shots, then im done. chatting and joking with buddies more fun :) chasing hornbill and mistakenly identifying crow as an eagle is also fun!

So did you manage to get yourself poisoned good? Getting a 70-200 f2.8 soon? :D
