Thistles

Not many birds around today, instead I turned the SW 600mm scope towards these thistles in various degrees of bloom/decay. The depth of field is quite narrow.

EM5 @ISO640/1000, ~1/300s

Thanks for looking
Tord

Very beautiful pictures Tord. How far off were the thistles?

Thanks,

The subjects were taken at "point blank", which is about 6 meters distance when using this scope with 80mm extension tubes.

I have additional tubes but did not bring them with me on that session.

At that distance, I don't know how you "see" the picture at all. You have a fantastic eye for a subject.
