Getting close and comfy with Mother Nature’s creations.

Are we really seeing what’s out there to see?
50mm reversal on Tamron 90mm macro
430EX w/ light fall
Canon 40D
f/32 ISO200 1/250

Have a great Thursday my friends and I hope you’re not getting annoyed with my macro shots yet.
I’m thinking it’s time for another artsy image, 3D and/or PhotoShop.
Maybe a Funky Friday image?…

    The details of its markings are exceptional as well as the droplets of water. I have a ladybug flying around my apartment right now but it won’t sit long for this kind of photograph 🙂

    I love these insect shots. The only bugs I’ve seen so far this year was some bugs in a bag of flour in my kitchen cupboard. I spent a weekend cleaning down the kitchen, even unscrewing the back panel of the washing machine to make sure no bugs were hiding there. Not an event I wanted to document.
