I visited a local nursery today with the camera club, they keeps tropical plants for their customers in several large greenhouses. It is like walking through a jungle and just loads of things to shoot. Good day

Evening Flight
This time of the year the swans return to the Aylmer Wildlife Management area as they move north. There are so many moments to capture with thousands of birds moving around. 
This flight of Canadian geese dipping and tipping as they come in for landing against the sky, gave me inspiration for this work.

Sometimes I wonder what an image you did in the past would look like if I did it again. Maybe my skills have improved or an application has come along that would change how I would do an image. This is an orchid I repossessed with the Topaz Lab Suite

Introduction
"Get Low Move Slow" 
I am Canadian, retired, a hobby photographer, exploring many subjects. 
I love cats big and small, dogs too just not as much.

Olympus  Cameras - OM-D ME-5 camera with the Micro 12-50 lens
Olympus E-1 and E-3 with my main macro lens a Sigma 150 mm HSM f/2.8 macro. My general use lens are the 9-18 Olympus F3.5 and the 50-200 Olympus f:2.8. My tripod is a Manfrotto 055XPPro with a Manfrotto 488RC2 ballhead an acra clamp.

I use Adobe PhotoShop CS/6 and Nik plug-ins, mostly Viveza 2 and Color Efex Pro 4.0 and Zerene Stacker .
