Unknown Australian Wildflower


I do not know what this little charmer is called - am still looking for a wildflower field guide to Australia.

Ive been having trouble with my vision for awhile now, and blurry photos have become common. I dont know they are blurry till I get them up on my screen in full size mode, very frustrating! Ive tried compensating by using the auto-focus feature, but so far, not much joy there either. Will keep trying to find a work-around that works for me.

Yes, I have been to the doctor for this. It is a complex problem that there is nothing they can do for. Fairly typical of me, if I do say myself. I seem to be prone to being difficult. I will have to bring you up to date on the situation with my hands soon too...perhaps next time?

What a lovely spot of color!

Oh I hope you get a better answer about your vision. That has to be so disheartening! Still - I'm glad to see you back, even if it's only a bit. Hope you're doing well.

It can be really annoying when what you think is going to be a good shot turns out blurry. The image always looks crisper on a smaller screen. Autofocus can be troublesome, often focusing on the wrong bit. You could try altering your aperture to favour a greater depth of field, that would give you a greater margin for error.(A ring flash would give some extra light for macro, and allow you to 'stop' down a little.) How about plugging the AV OUT from your camera into a media player with a larger screen? (cumbersome but portable)
That flower looks so familier, like I've seen it in a book somewhere. I'll see if I can find it...

The base looks a little like a thistle but the flower makes it a conundrum..

Yeah that vision problem can be very frustrating. My vision is ok but I occassionally am thrown off when I use the camera after my wife does. She adjusts the eyepiece for her vision and when I get ahold of it the picture looks blurry because my vision is different. Have you tried zooming in, focusing on the subject, then zooming out and taking the picture?
