Until next time,
P.S. – I have lots of stuff to update about, but not a whole lot of time to update! So, I’m hoping that over the winter, I’ll be posting the pictures I took at the wedding and of the various other things I’ve been doing that are photography related. :)
The next category is:
These flowers remind me of tiger lilies!
Hibiscus petals against a blue sky.
Of course, I can’t get past this category without the picture of the all-famous clover flower! ;)
Part of a hibiscus.
Blogger decided to flip this picture, when it wasn’t supposed to be. Sorry about that! :)
Okay, this really is the last picture of this moth!
While I was taking pictures of this moth Daddy told me to look where I was. I was about 2 inches away from this little guy, and I was so close that my lens hood was covering him! So, yes, this really is a micro lens!
A little bug!
As I was climbing back into the car after photographing some of the above creatures, we found that a dragonfly had somehow flown into our car and been trapped! Perfect photo opportunity! So, once the dragonfly called down a bit, Daddy got him to stay on his fingers so I could take some pictures!
It is amazing how interesting dragonflies are!
I can’t get over how pretty the sun is on insects’ wings! :)
And my last picture of this dragonfly.
After his own mini-photo-session, Mr. Dragonfly was set free!
Back to some more insects!
A country grasshopper.
My siblings had found 3 of these caterpillars, and since I returned home with my micro lens, they wanted me to get some pictures of them!
I love their colors!
Lexi showing to you one of her many talents!
Whenever you mess with the caterpillars they stick up these horns…it’s really neat!
Daddy also brought in a cicada for me to take pictures of. We thought it was dead but after touching it, and then leaving it alone, it got up and flew all around the kitchen where we were. It sent just about everybody into a panic. :-D
Once again, Daddy found this creature, on the same night he found the cicada! Jesus obviously put lots of little insects in Dad’s path, so I could get their pictures! :)
I think this is one of my favorites from the entire day!
The more I play with the micro lens the more I’m amazed at how God made everything so intricate and unique. Just look at the insects! We have an amazing designer that I love very much! :)
P.S. – The 60mm micro works great as a portrait lens too. Here is Daddy posing for me:
P.S.S. – Above all I’m really pleased with my new lens! It takes great pictures – micro and portrait – and I think I’ll be using it often from now on! :)
