this or that thursday: green

This is an extra busy week so I'm going to be really quick. I've been getting ready all week to go to a three-day scrapbooking crop. I haven't been to one in 15 years so I'm really excited!

For these first two I used my 200mm lens. As you can see it creates such nice bokeh. I did a comparison between a 200, 100 and 50mm lens here last year and the difference in bokeh was very noticeable. I was actually waiting for the hummingbird to show up when I took this shot. He loves this flower.



I didn't have any luck with him returning so I had to resort to taking a photo of the grass. At least the light was pretty. :)



Here's just one more because I'm feeling a little festive. As I'm writing we're about to go out to eat to celebrate Gary's birthday which reminded me of this shot from last year...



I hope you had better luck with your shooting this week and I hope you'll share with us today. There are just a few rules.
  • submit the url of your blog post, not your home page
  • link up a photo that was taken by you
  • include a link back to my blog in your post (you can use the button or a text link if you prefer)
  • visit a few other blogs and leave some comment love 
Okay, just link up below!

  14. I can tell you really love photography when you like experimenting with lenses:)
    (I recognize the passion because hubby does the same).
    Of course I never tire of experimenting with paints and brushes (the last time I counted was 60 good brushes)
