On March 24th, I posted a photograph of a Big Bend Bluebonnet that I photographed near Santa Elena Canyon. I spotted a large mound of Bluebonnets on my way back to the lodge so I stopped to photograph them. Many of the flowers had dew on them and I realized that photographing Dew on a Big Bend Bluebonnet would make a nice photograph.
Can you spot our little friend?
This image was taken with my Sony A7 IV using my Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro Lens. The camera was set on Manual mode with the aperture set at f/2.8, shutter speed at 1/320th of a second, and ISO set at 250. I used a tripod and my focus rail to capture thirteen images which I stitched together using Adobe Photoshop using the focus stacking feature. I finished processing the image in Photoshop using Nik Color Efex Pro.
