Small Things

When I got the new camera, I was anxious to try it in specific circumstances, most centering around low light. The a6000 was okay but not great. The a6400 is far better!

Because of excessive heat, followed by storms, I wasn’t able to get out much the first couple of weeks, so I took pictures at home. Brown anoles are plentiful, and they were often my subjects.  This was the first pic I took with the new camera. The anole was in deep shadow. I was impressed with the amount of detail the camera captured.

This one was taken at dusk. Looks like a pregnant female.

This one: deep shadow and against a dark background. The other thing I liked was that the camera knew to focus on the anole, not the grass blades, which were closer to the camera.

Shade again. Didn’t even know they were, you know, until I downloaded the picture. 🙂 

Tiny little baby anole, trying to remain unnoticed on the hibiscus leaf. 

I’ll wrap up this post with three pics taken with the a6000. That is an excellent camera, especially for the price, but the a6400 is better. I’m so glad I got it.

The first two are macros. Flatid planthopper.

Flesh fly blowing a bubble. It’s suspected they do this to regulate body temperature.

A bee fly. Heh. Sounds like a contradiction in terms to me, but that’s what it’s called. Taken with the telephoto lens from several feet away.

See you next time.
