Flower time lapse experiment

Another short time lapse experiment. I thought I would capture this Christmas Cactus flower opening, thinking that it would open during the daylight hours. Apparently they begin to open in the night time, who knew? The first half of this was shot Sunday afternoon from about1:00 to 6:30 and then today from 6:30 am until the battery died around 4:00 (I think). I should have shot it with a greater depth of field but I have f1.4 madness - a conditioned caused when you have an f/1.4 lens and you just want to shoot everything at f/1.4 -- live and learn.  I will likely try this again as I am really not all that displeased with this experiment.  I need to control the lighting better and get better battery life.   . . . of course the dramatic music makes everything look better. . .
