Week 52 – Robin


Beautiful Orchid Bee

I planted some Mexican Heather in a container and many beautiful bees have visited. This bee is the most beautiful and I spent a lot of time trying to get a nice photo of them. They are quite small and very active. Such a pretty jewel of nature!

Canon 6D and 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS. Settings were 1/1600 sec; f/2.8; ISO 1600. I rotated the photo so the bee was right side up and cropped in.

Have a very Merry Christmas and may the new year bring much happiness! :mrgreen:

Hang In There

This is the first image I created for my Breast Cancer Awareness Series.  My goal is to display a Pink Ribbon image on my Instagram feed for everyday in October.  Shot this with my Nikon D300S and 105mm Nikkor Macro Lens.


Week 48 – Becky


This flower was beautiful as is but I wanted to play with some grunge overlays to make it pop.  Shot with my Olympus TG4 and edited in Photoshop CC.


Week 46 – Robin


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. 🙂

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. 😀

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 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.
