Nikon D100 pictures of a pond near my house, Oct. 5, 2003, starting just as the sun rose. Below,
Quiet and Misty Pond - the sun is not yet illuminating the scene
There are one or two (hundred?) aphids on the flower stem. There's still some dew.
Takes a heavy-duty tripod to hold the 300mm lens...
Notice the green & yellow color scheme on this guy. Pretty inconspicuous. I'm guessing some sort of Katydid; definitely grasshopper-like. I'm not sure what sort of flower -- closest looks to be a Cut-leaved Daisy (Engelmann's Daisy), but it also looks like a Maximillian Sunflower. Contact me if you know, please!

Photo Talk: Nikon D100. First three: tripod mounted using Nikon 300 f2.8 ED lens & 180 2.8 ED lens, Nikon 55mm f2.8 macro, and Nikon 35mm f1.4 lenses. If you care which lens was used for which shot let me know. The last three images feature the Nikon 105 AF D Macro F2.8 & D100's built in flash.
