Digging through some boxes in my garage to see what I can get rid of. Came across 3 Clay Art ceramic masks that I have had stored in boxes for the past 15 years. Decided to sell them on Ebay since they are not doing me any good just taking up space. Thought this would make a good weekly photo. It was singing to me to convert it to black and white 🙂 Shot with my IPhone. Placed on a black velvet cloth and shot from above. Not much editing accept converting to black and white.
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.
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!
Used a an Olympus TG-4 on microscope mode with the LED ring light attached.
A couple of cicada shells on an oak tree.
Canon 6D and EF100mm f/2.8L Macro IS. Settings were 1/80 sec; f/8; ISO 800.
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.
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.
