  • Paul, I use freeware called CombineZP. It has limitations such as not working with RAW, and the interface is a bit clunky, but I find it good for what it is. I gather you can use the latest ...
  • Replied in Blue flower
    Thanks, Paul. Yes I meant focus stacking - 6 images in all. Rick
  • Replied in straws
    These are great! Rick
  • Just a few from a walk last weekend in a small nature reserve by the harbour: Acacia floribunda - Sally wattle I think Hibbertia scandens Grevillea sericea or pink spider flower, also showing ...
  • Replied in Blue flower
    I'm not sure of the species, but taken with E-M1, Sigma 150, FL-50, stacked image, downsized to keep file size moderate.
  • Brad, that first one is really sharp, and is brilliant at full size or under loupe. A great start to the thread. Rick
  • Replied in Dewy morning
    That moth looks like it's had one hell of a night on the tiles! Your last pair work really well, especially the 3rd one with the magnifying lens effect in the central dewdrop. Nice work! Rick
  • Replied in I envy you,
    Sorry I missed your comment earlier, Brent - it gives me a chance to add my thanks for hosting this week's thread. On climate, Sydney's pretty good, but the real Goldilocks zone is on the equator ...
  • Replied in Just a few
    I did earlier, Rich, but via PM, as I didn't want to spoil the tease for anybody else (assuming the 99.9% is correct). Rick
  • That's an interesting and varied collection of flowers and images, photoholiko; I enjoyed it. Thanks for posting. Rick
  • That exact color in an iris is a first for me; nice capture! Rick
  • Replied in Frank....
    ... I've certainly not seen ones like this in Oz before - the shape reminds me a little of the gloriosa in WhyNot's post. I was also intrigued by the riff on slavery in your signature, the wire ...
  • Replied in Just a few
    I'm abt 95% sure I've figured it out; having slept on it, the 5% keeps me quiet... Rick
  • Replied in Just a few
    I must say... no, on second thoughts I'll just shut up and go to bed before I cause any trouble. Nice rose! Rick
  • That miniature orchid garden is a great idea, Alfred - I look forward to seeing more from it as the different ones come into flower. That gloriosa hybrid was also interesting - as far as I ...
  • I liked both of these, and I'm another who is envious of your monarch butterfly opportunity! Rick
  • A very neatly chosen and crafted image. Rick
  • Nice (in both senses of the word) exposition, even including the couple of color-coordinated insects on the first one. Rick
  • Thanks, Andrew. I vaguely wondered if that caterpillar had placed itself symmetrically as an attempt at camouflage but that would probably be too much for a butterfly brain! Rick
  • Thanks for your comments and interest, WhyNot. You are quite correct in that the banksia seed cones are sometimes used in various ways for folk art, though I don't think I have any examples handy. ...
