Nice sharp image and I like the way the composition makes them sweep together without seeming distorted or modified.

What Lens and F/stop did you use to get the depth of field? Love the image. Was the lighting natural?

Lens was 75-300 f4-5.6, shot 300mm @5.6 from about 6 ft. Natural lighting, in the shade of the tree,mid afternoon.

Thanks for the info Michael. I guess for these kind of shots I alway think macro but then never get the depth of field I want. Never thought about using a 300 and standing back. That was exactly the info I needed, helps me to rethink what I do. - Duane
