Hangover


Been trying to grow things since I have a lot more time at home. I am just a beginner at it. This flower looks sad, but it has some beauty.

Used Canon 6D and Lensbaby Composer Pro II and a Sweet Optic 35. Not too much editing as the Lensbaby setup seems to create in camera magic.

In the Pink

For my birthday this year I got a Lensbaby Composer Pro II and a Sweet Optic 35. I have been inspired by Anita Kram’s work and want to awaken my creative side again. πŸ™‚

The Lensbaby is a challenge and a half to get right with manual focus but this optic is very sharp and I was blown away at the quality! I used a macro converter in this shot and my Canon 6D. I was amazed that I got the fly in focus. πŸ˜€

BellaintheWoods

NWG’s been taking a break… Time to post again.
This is Bella my brother’s German Shepherd. Sadly Bella passed away very recently. My brother and his wife also sold their home and moved to a smaller home with less property to take care of.

I loved this beautiful 92 acre property in Anthony, Florida with prairie, ponds and most of all the dreamy oak tree forests. Bella always stayed by my side when I took walks through the property as if she was my guardian. I will miss her, the good times with family and my walks through the woods.

The Laugher –Β Charadra deridens

My husband found this strange looking caterpillar floating on a fake lily pad in our little goldfish pond. He is a little wet but safe now. πŸ™‚ He has one of the coolest faces I have ever seen… so I focused on that. Sunglasses and a smile!

Here is some more information about the species of moth—> The Laugher Charadra deridens

Used the Olympus TG-4 on Microscope mode.

SaucerUFO
OK.. this is a little weird, but during the holidays I had some time to be a little creative and have some fun. My husband and I were taking shots of the supermoon and our TV antenna, that happens to look like a flying saucer, got the focus. LOL! So… I cloned out the arm that attaches it to the house, added a few lights, mist and rocket exhaust.

A male agapostemon splendens or “sweat bee”. They like human sweat apparently. I never knew that… Thank you Google. πŸ™‚ They are flashy and pretty like they are dressed up for Mardi Gras!

Used a an Olympus TG-4 on microscope mode with the LED ring light attached.
