I have been using a 1,2,3 + diopter lenses stacked set up for the macros I have been posting the last few days, thus the poor quality. I hope to try a reverse lens set up soon which should have much better results. Hope you enjoy!
The Eyes Have It....
Could be an alien but no, it's a male Calypte anna
Hmmm, this looks mighty suspicious, or is it?
Now this guy is very dangerous. He is also rather reclusive. Also carries a fiddle on his back....Loxsoceles reclusa - the brown recluse or fiddle-back spider...
What the heck are these? Maybe this will help? Or how about this to aid identification. Aphonopelma chalcodes!!
More Eight Eyes;
Now don't jump when you see these ones. Two huge, two medium and four small eyes on a lovely face. He is Phiddipus audax and a very handsome fellow indeed - if very small!
Hope you enjoy!
stretching thier wings, drying thier wings and finally visiting flowers. There were several different kinds. We had a lot of fun. My mom is just getting into taking photos. So she enjoyed it a lot. Especially when we had them posing for us!
I went for my walk today and took many shots, but have not edited them yet...so here are some I took yesterday...Can you guess what they are..#1 and #2. Also thoses who live in the northern states could see the Northern Lights tonight so watch for them....you never know. For more on this you can go to Spaceweather.com
Annnnnd! I finally got my manual focus to work for the G3. I would press the button, and press the button, but nothing would happen. The button was jammed or something, I guess. I pressed it yesterday and I finally got that bad boy to work. So I spent some time messing around with that...
My First Post
I've been lurking for a few weeks and finally decided to join the party! I'm looking forward to bringing my skills to the next level. Here are some shots from last summer. I love photographing the visitors in and around my gardens. This guy just sat there posing for the longest time. "I'm ready for my Close-up, Mr. DeMille".
Smiles! from the watergarden.
I LOVE my macro...especially when it snows, and snows some more.
And finally, some reflections from last year...chrome, photog in a bubble. (i know, they won't count toward the challenge!)
