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.

Frog

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.

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!

Chryalis of Gulf Fritillary

While examining our gardenia I noticed this Chryalis.  Checked it out online and found it to belong to the Gulf Fritillary butterfly.  It was so cool to watch it move.  Maybe I will get lucky and catch it coming out.  Shot with the Olympus TG4 on microscope mode zoomed in.  Settings were f4.9,1/100sec/18mm/iso800.

Lying in wait

These spider’s web blended in well with the surroundings.  I did not realize there was a spider there until I positioned myself at a different angle.  I am in a black and white mood it seems.  This is the third black and white photo I have submitted.  I boost the contrast using curves in Photoshop, sharpened, converted B/W.  Shot with the Olympus TG4.  settings f4.9, 1/400sec, iso250, 18mm.
