Thanks Min! I wouldn't have tried it either, but as somebody said, "Ya takes yer pitcher with the camera ya gots." (Somebody said that, or somethin' like it...) And I did spray'n'pray, about 20 exposures, most unfocused. They are murder to hold steady. I think I've seen adverts for grips and even supplemental lenses to turn your cell phone into a "real camera," kinda like a real boy, or whatever...minniev wrote:Pretty good bees Chuck and nice flowers too. I would never have attempted bees with a cellphone, but I can't manage to hold the darn things steady enough to get a decent shot of anything. You did good! Detail, color. Hope ya'll get settled soon, moving is no fun!
Thanks Dave! Don't ditch your DSLR. I know the phone cameras are making great strides and "everyone" has one, but I would have been much happier had I brought my Sony RX-10 along. I'm not unhappy with these (in fact I'm pretty chuffed) but some of the oddball artifacting is offputting, and the Nexus 6p is supposed to have a superior camera.davechinn wrote:Busy, busy bees !!! Excellent cell phone usage Chuck. I have always been pretty negative with cell phone camera users .... until I need one myself !!! All are outstanding, but the first two get the prize for me. I may just put the DSLR away and carry two cell phones after seeing these. Great set Chuck.
Thanks Linda! I'm the guy who pretty much never met the flower he didn't like, but mostly have little idea what they are. The moving thing is another matter...LindaShorey wrote:I commented earlier, but must not have submitted - unless my comments are in someone else's topic, lol. I like the setting very much. Those are beautiful flowers (can't recall the name) and #1 is especially eye-catching. Good luck with your move!
Thank you Frank!Psjunkie wrote:Nice job Chuck...
Ceropegia wrote:You and your phone did an admirable job, druthers aside. BTW the flowers are sedums specifically sedum spectibile most likely "Autumn Joy" aka Stonecrop. Very durable plants. If you sever a branch and lay it on the ground, usually, in no time, it will put down roots, turn upward, and voila, you have a new plant. Have some in my garden. Butterflies have been going crazy over them (bumblebees, bees, and the like, too) as they do every fall.

There's quite a line of sedum on our side of the fence so I'll be sure to let my DIL know that if she wishes to expand the bed it's as easy as laying a branch on the ground. There were some butterflies too, painted ladies, but they were few and very flighty (so to speak). None landed near the bees so, oh, well.
