We were walking around the fields at Davidsons Mill Pond Park looking for interesting images besides Dragonflies. Most of the gardens are still closed, but we could shoot through the fencing here & there. Davidsons Mill Pond is a County Park comprising over 417 acres that features grassland meadows, upland forests, open water, streams and wetlands, in addition to cultivated fields used by the Rutgers Cooperative Extension office. Their Butterfly House was not used this year because of the Covid closing most things. These are a series of images of subjects I thought were interesting as we were walking through the fields. Again, I was using an Olympus OM-D E-M1 with a Panasonic 100-300mm zoom lens. Which gives me a Full Frame Camera Field of View equivalent of 200mm – 600mm in a very lightweight camera to walk around with. I was mostly shooting aperture priority @ f/8, giving me enough depth of field on my subjects, but still have a smoother background.
I have seen many flower posts, but your photos are stunning. I love bright colors! than you.
Thanks so much Sartenada! I appreciate the kind words! Have a Great weekend also!
The first picture gives me Christmas associations. You have to wear sunglasses with such strong and clear colors.
Thanks Hans! It was a very sunny day which helped make the strong colors!
Thanks Eliza! It is fun to see what you can find to photograph as you walk through the park! And try different ways to photograph your subjects!
Very nice series, Reed! It sounds like a wonderful place.
Thanks so much Belinda! It is an amazing place! Lots of gardens and fields of wildflowers. Plus interesting paths through the woods. Lots of photo opportunities!

Thanks so much! It is fun to look and see what you can find to photograph in parks!
