A short post today that covers a total of 2 seconds of time. I was taking some pictures of Gallardia flowers in our wildflower garden. I took the standard head on, dead-center shots and decided to try a three quarter profile. This first shot (pretty nice, I thought) was with the ISO set at 800, f9, and 1/25 sec exposure time. Since this was hand-held, I planned to take a couple of shots to insure that neither I nor the flower wobbled in at a least 1 shot.
:-) I didn't even notice that JD was in the background.
According to the time stamp, this next shot was 2 seconds after the first shot. During that 2 seconds, JD walked into the center of the frame to see why I wasn't paying attention to him. He sniffed the flower, pushing it toward the right as I snapped the picture. And -- it was IN FOCUS!
This has to be the sweetest picture I have ever taken and I felt compelled to share it (i.e., inflict on the blogosphere).
Sniffing the flowers; lovely shot Wilma.ReplyDelete
One of those 'perfect' moments captured.
Sometimes the 'accidental' shots are the best ones.
Have a nice weekend

thanks for visiting and for the comments. I confess that I have a real soft spot in my heart for JD. I'm glad you enjoyed looking at him too.
WoW....simply beautifully captured shots!ReplyDelete
Awesome picture. You should enter it for use in a kitty calendar. Serendipity is a wonderful thing...ReplyDelete
The second photo is so marvellous. It would look perfect on the front of a greeting card.ReplyDelete
