On my way to Dothan, AL this past Friday, I stopped by the Suwannee River State Park near Live Oak, FL, just off of I-10. I went there last year on the same trip, and I had thought the place was pretty but didn't see much wildlife. The same held true this year, though the added bonus of seeing a patch of Atamasco "Rain" Lilies near what appeared to be a Cypress swamp that is currently dry. I didn't have my macro lens with me, but I decided to have some fun seeing what I could do with a 400mm lens shooting from relatively far away. I thought it would be fun to shoot from below and play with the backgrounds with various lilies out focus and others in focus. I only had 15 minutes before I had to hit the road, so here's what I came up with.
