Nature Walk – Ampang 2008 Vol.1

Here are a few more photos from my collection / archives.


Here is a tiny moth (about the size of a 5 sen coin) which I took in 2008. It was around 7.45pm and I took this shot in almost complete darkness. Took many shots to make sure my focus was accurate (used manual focus) also braketed my exposures to make sure I get at least one okay shot. Exposure was f/14 for 20 seconds, ISO 100. It was a gratifying day back in Nov. 2008.




Here is a butterfly pic which I took at a bush nearby where I got the moth pic. This one was taken early in the morning about 7.15am with my Nikon 70-300VR; which I hardly use. Exposure was f.5.6 at 1/160 sec, ISO 450. Unfortunately, after a few months, this bush area was cleared by the people staying nearby, and replaced with some plants and potted flowers. Sadly, the butterflies and bugs also disappeared along with it.




This is one very patient fly. It just stayed there while I snapped away, with different compositions and exposures until I was satisfied. Taken with my favorite lens, the Tamron 90mm macro lens. Exposure at f/5.6 for 1/30 sec, ISO 400.

  1. That moth must have been sitting seriously still for 20 sec exposure…some nice shots, I like the fly the best.
