Week 43 – Robin


The Laugher – 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. 🙂 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.

Week 42

Went for a drive to Kenansville. Kenansville is a very small town with acres and acres of nearly nothing surrounding it along a two lane seldomly traveled road.  Spotted this Bald Eagle as we were driving down one of the dirt roads off the paved road. There were two birds, but of course one flew off before I could get a photo. This one flew off just after getting this one photo. Such beautiful birds! It’s easy to see why this bird was chosen as our national bird.


Week 42 – Robin

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.

Week 41

Sorry I skipped a week…life has been challenging lately. But, I got this cute photo of a manatee a few days ago. When it’s cold here in sunny Florida, the manatees accumulate in the swallow canals where the water is warmer. This guy was laying on his back just chillin…actually trying not to chill :-). I want to thank my no wimpy girlfriends for being patience with me.


Week 41 – Becky



WOW I am so behind with my weekly photos.  Anyway I was monitoring the Chryalis (week 40 post) in hopes of catching the butterfly emerging.  I checked on it for 3 weeks.  Went to do something else for 15 minutes and the butterfly emerged with out me 😦

So I ended getting a photo of this frog on the bark.  Applied Topaz Adjust to make it tiny bit more interesting.  Shot with IPhone 6.


Week 41 – Robin


Agapostemon splendens

A male agapostemon splendens or “sweat bee”. They like human sweat apparently. I never knew that… Thank you Google. 🙂 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.
