@lukaso666 Thank you! I'm really happy with how these came out...

I didn't actually use an interval timer, but I took enough extra frames I could make this little timelapse...

The moon moves surprisingly fast and always looks largest when it's very low on the horizon, so I kept dropping the tripod down and moving left to get a few more versions of the previous image, and then got a last couple shots of it further up in the sky... Still big and bright.

Fortunately I had time and space to get to the other side of the field to align the moon behind this tree more or less like I had planned to - just from a different angle.

When the moon started rising it was completely not where I had expected it to be, so I had to scramble to get the first shots...

A Sapphire Flutterer (Rhyothemis triangularis) spotted at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, Singapore, on 4 April 2020. My first photos of it. 🙂 This was at the pond near the entrance, which was buzzing with dragonflies today.

The Sapphire Flutterer is an uncommon local dragonfly with distinctive purplish blue patches on its wings. I knew what it was the moment I saw it.

On iNaturalist [ inaturalist.org/observations/4 ].

I was getting another picture off my sd card and found this... I think I took it a week or two ago?

I also took a couple on the ricoh RDC-4200...
In the uncompressed tif mode it actually has a surprising amount of dynamic range + room to push exposure in editing.

The second one is a focus stack... I liked how I could give the buds a soft background by blurring the flowers at f/4, but I wanted more in focus, so I combined a bunch of exposures at f/4 + one at f/20. It sort of worked but I could have done a better job...
