There aren’t that many really great pale blue flowers; the object of the game for the plant is to attract the bugs’ attention, which is tough if you blend with the sky. Hydrangeas are a notable exception. Shot with a new camera setup, too.
Hydrangeas also come in pink, but not today.
These are shot with the Pentax, which has been pointed at this plant before. Acting on advice from Dave Sifry, I’ve started fooling around with a prime (i.e. non-zoom) lens; this is the manual-focus 50mm the old film Pentax came with.
Here’s an interesting side-effect: neither of these are cropped. The composition I got by moving the camera around was the one I decided to stay with.
