My photo of the day.

Today was a good day to get outside and take photos as the day was a little overcast, but not a lot so there was a very soft light which is lot easier to adjust settings for. I used the Aperture setting and set my ISO for 200 and my f stop to 5.6 and zoomed into this flower. Since I have gone into Aperture setting I have found that there is a intelligent digital zoom which gets me much better macro photos. I have also discovered in previous sessions to set the ratio to 1:1 for macro photography which has helped a lot as well.
The hoverfly was very obliging and stayed reasonably still for me and this photograph is as it was shot in camera which makes it even more special. I try not to do too much editing as I am more of a purist photographer, but I have seen some amazing artwork from other photographers on Flickr.
I hope this bright and colourful photograph brings a ray of sunshine to those who are just coming out of a cold winter. For you summer is just around the corner.  We are heading into autumn and winter so I am making the most of my opportunities.
Have a great day.
