One of my Amaryllis plants had started to show its flower buds so I thought it would be just the thing for another time lapse trial. It was pure guesswork as to whether the flower would actually end up in frame:
I was surprised just how much the plant moved as it tried to track the Sun.
Photographs were taken every 45 minutes but the flower bloomed much faster than I expected. The photos were compiled to a video using the trial version of Sequence for the Mac. This did a good job of reducing the flicker and adjusting the white balance over the 185 photos. As the original video only ran for about 7 seconds at 25 fps I reduced its speed when I put it in iMovie to add the title and music track.
A mainly pictorial record of the wildlife and events in my part of Lincolnshire. My garden has two bird nest boxes and a Hedgehog house fitted with video cameras. There are several bird feeders and a large pond attracting a variety of wildlife to the garden.
Most of the pictures in the main part of my Jottings can be clicked on for larger views.
Many of my video clips are stored on my YouTube account.
