Nikon Wednesday 2018: #21

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by Matt Laur, May 23, 2018.

  1. Important: please keep your image under 1000 pixels on the longest side for in-line viewing, and please keep the FILE SIZE UNDER 300kb. Note that this includes photos hosted off-site (at Flickr, Photobucket, your own site, etc). Are you new to this thread? The general guidelines for these Wednesday threads are right here: This forum's moderators are allowing up to three Nikon Wednesday images per week, so share some work!

    It may be Nikon Wednesday, put mostly - here, anyway - it's Pollen Explosion Day. We've been having it in waves, but a sustained week of rain followed by a warm day of sun has the pines and oaks celebrating, in their own social way. And it's not just like dust! This stuff sticks right to the front elements on your lenses. Don't change lenses under a pine tree just now! Not unless you want to give your sensor a wet cleaning. Shot any annoying bits of nature this month? I hear the poison ivy is getting a good start, too. Share some photos!
    (D800 with a Sigma 105mm macro, followed by some antihistamine).

  7. Hello everyone. Been away from the Nikon world for a while but the D500 deal brought me back. Here is a Hosta plant. 500_0062.jpg

  9. A number of words come to mind, annoying among them, when I think about dealing with the aftermath of a macro burst (110 mph winds) that hit here last week DSC_9517 x1000.JPG
  10. Nothing particularly new this week, except for the lightning photos most of you have already seen posted in other threads. In honor of Matt's OP:
  11. Almost summer.
  12. One more.
  13. The last one.
  14. The same common tern from last week's thread, different TC.


    Nikon D800E, AF-S 300/2.8 VR, TC-14EIII

  16. The lilacs are in full bloom. Plenty of bees around, but for a change here's a fly.

  17. And I'm a little late - the bugs got there first - but there's a feast of morels this year that I never saw before.

    These three taken with D7100 and 28-105D lens.
