Thats the only photograph I took.. Will try to capture better details of the plant and its parts here onwards.
Its not always possible to capture full plant details when we are photographing in the field/forest and there are many valid reasons.
It so happens that we are left behind and probably a warning from guide/family membes comes quickly "hurry -its getting late", then we capture very few details of the flora. This is what exactlly happenned in this Peristrophe case
Sometimes we become
lazy to change the camera lens and end up photographing a plant flower in zoom lens.We cannot capture finer details then. Small lens make us to go near the plant and photograph, then we have better look of the parts of plant.
We don't want to take risk to go near a flower when the flower is in the mid of thick bushes to avoid snakes or a shallow pool edges (Ipomoea alba L. case) Photographing a leaf or a fruit in the crown of the tall tree is again a challenge when there is insufficient light or in the evenings.
Majority of the people other than regular nature visitors are inclined to reach
their destination as quickly as possible. A kind of time sense even in forest (especially while returning from the trek, they hardly try sighting anything, . )
Multiple interests (Trees, birds, insects, landscape), We are photographing a flowering plant, A passing butterfly can divert our attention. . . Finally, we tend to forget what we were actually photographing
We still continue to post and request for identification with such incomplete plant details. Sorry for that ! I hope there is always scope to learn and improvise. Again I hope the group members understand photographers problems.
Though I carry a note book and a pen during field visits, I feel its still better we carry a printed identification template format as provided by Sri Gargji
By the way I am impressed by the different
views of a tree/plant photographs provided by biotik.org
folks. Probably they are on a long sponsored mission and get enough time for observing plant/trees. I envy them !
