Up at 4:15 AM this morning again, I headed for Stanley Park long before sunrise – only to find out the wind was blowing 5 or 10 km/h over Lost Lagoon. How ironic! Went I’m not waiting for the wind to pick up in order to fly my paraglider, I’m hoping for it to die down to do some macro  photography.

I ended up in the rhododendron garden. These pictures are the result of multiple focus-bracketed exposures blended together for a small bit of extra depth of field. Mixed results. I need to work on tripod stability so that alignment is better and decrease the bracket range to avoid unnatural-looking images.

On the way back, I shot the herons of the previous post. They are actively building or rebuilding their nests.
