While reviewing some images from 6 years ago today, I noticed a spider hiding in a daffodil bloom. It is always fun to go back and review old images – the good, the bad, and the ugly. Sometimes to learn from previous mistakes, other times to discover things in the images that I missed. This is one reason that I don’t delete many images.
Some backyard images taken with a Nikon 1 V2 camera and the new 80-400 mm VRII lens (with the FT1 adapter). The lens is much bigger than the camera, but still easy to use hand-held. The field of view (FOV) with this lens is equivalent to 216-1080 mm on a 35 mm (FX) DSLR. The base ISO for the Nikon 1 V2 is 160, and at the base ISO the image of the spring daffodil shows good colors and saturation. At an ISO of 1600, there is significant noise, and the colors and saturation are reduced as seen with the image of the Doe.
