    1. Thanks Alan, I was sorry to have startled the fish into fleeing, but it turned out to have made for an interesting pic.

  3. Your pictures are always great but I especially admire your koi shots! I've not figured out how to avoid the surface glare of the water very well yet.

    The puppies, plotting world domination, are cogitating on a variety of topics including dog toy allocations, kibble rations, bone bunker locales, and the constitutionality of kitty torture.

    1. What I learned was: a polarizing filter helps immensely, though no filter on those. Shots with or without flash at sunset, when there is still sufficient light, seems to eliminate all glare. A tweak with photoshop can sometimes do the trick.

  4. First word that comes to mind for the black thingies on the rose is "stipules," but I don't think that's right. And the startled fish make a lovely "water color." Fabulous macro shots! Sure doesn't feel like the end of summer yet.
