This is the first of a couple of macro shots that I took in our local park, both of which started out as more as experiments than anything else. Much as I like my camera, like all digital compacts it has a massive depth of field compared to an SLR, and while this is great for some shots, it’s irritating when you want to isolate a subject by using a shallow DOF. That said, the macro mode does a much better job of limiting the DOF as this shot testifies.

As for this shot: while I prefer the one I’m going to put up tomorrow, I like the vibrancy and composition of this one though do think it would probably have been more appealing had it been less cluttered.
