Panoramas Are Not Just For Landscapes
I am still going through images I photographed earlier in the Summer. The featured image is a panorama of a Praying Mantis in our garden at home. Using 3 images and assembled in Photoshop. It was a windy day so the flower it was on was blowing wildly in the wind. I had no way to stabilize the flower, so I was shooting bursts at a high shutter speed to hopefully get a sharp enough image and have the frames needed to blend together. I was shooting with a Sigma 150mm macro lens so the movement of the subject Mantis was all over in the frames. I was shooting bursts to hopefully get some in the frame and in focus and have enough to work with.

You did succeed very well, Reed!
Thanks Greta! I was surprised I got enough images for the pano!
Love the vivid green against the pink… watch out bees!
Thanks Eliza! It did seem to really stand out against the flower!
Fine detail and colour!
Thanks Belinda! We never had this many Praying Mantis in our yard! This year they were all over!
Fabulous panorama work, Reed! The mantis against the pink is beautiful!!
Thanks Donna! Photoshop did most of the Work! It is fun to assemble panoramas!
