Looking for the small, interesting details in a great big photographic canvas or that little Nikon Coolpix P510 shows off some great bokeh!

These photos all taken at the El Dorado Nature Preserve early afternoon today.
All taken with the Nikon Coolpix P510 in auto or scene select on the knob. Full matrix metering and center point focus mostly. The lighting was in a word, terrible, but somehow the camera figured it all out.

Regretfully, I could not figure out how to do manual settings to the camera Embarrassed smile.

From the “that is way more detail than we need to see” department.

You do not want to be the recipient of that stare.

My camera battery died right after taking the next shot.

Above is an example of using aperture to good effect. Note how this dragonfly pops out of the blurred background.

That’s all for today. I have to get ready to drive a shuttle bus from Disneyland
to hotels. Hope to see you here again soon.
