It started as a 366 – now a regular Photoblog- just for the love of taking photos and sharing them.
This is gorgeous.
Thnaks Cassie and welcome to my blog… I hope you’ll drop by again… Oh and LOVE the name of your blog!!
Great close up. Well done.
Thanks Gerry and welcome to my blog 🙂
I don’t know how you achieve that deliciously blurred background, but I’m jealous of that. I don’t seem to be able to get that from my little Lumix. Here’s another British/American language thing: we call bulrushes “cattails”, but it’s the same plant. I never really connected that until now.
Cattails….hmmmm…..There’s logic to that…….They’re certainly more feline appendage than stampeding bovine….
cattails is an equally odd name for it !!
Lovely. I really like the little seeds flying. This reminds me that I have been trying on and off to get shots of midges against the light. Must remember to try again this year.
I was trying for ages to get this shot so very pleased with it 🙂 Midges will be very hard!
That’s an excellent picture, Helen. Having the backlit bullrush on the right stops the eye exiting the frame as it moves across the frame from left to right.
And then you’ve got the out of focus grasses or whatever they are in the background, and they look good and they’re the same colour as the rush. And having these two elements of the picture the same colour is good, because its a >>>different colour from the darker and really excellently featureless back ground.
And lastly of course you have the really excellently captured white Bullrush seeds as they float in a ragged line to leeward.
This is a great picture. Adrian
Wow great comment thanks Adrian 😀
LOVE this, Helen, especially with the seeds flying away!
Thanks F&B I was very pleased with it..
