Cellpic Sunday – 11 October 2020

Fargo, North Dakota.

Last week’s Cellpic Sunday introduced you to the NDSU Horticultural Research Gardens on the campus of North Dakota State University in Fargo. I had a bit of fun “chasing” another visitor around the flower beds. This little guy would see me and duck around behind some marigolds. He was big enough, however, that I could tell which way he went by the rustling of the plant leaves. At one point, he stopped near the zinnias and picked up something to eat. Apparently, he was hungry enough that he ignored me as I took his picture.

About the photo: I had the camera set to automatic mode and didn’t want to risk losing the shot because I was trying to fiddle with the manual adjustments. I also kept my distance, this close-up is due to a large crop adjustment. The camera set the exposure at f/3.5, 1/60 sec., ISO-40. I loaded the image to my Lightroom catalog, adjusted the crop, and finished the processing in Luminar 4.
