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.
Was watching TV when my little girl jumped up in my lap on top of a pillow and made her self comfortable. I looked down and my heart just melted at the look on her face as she started to doze off. I grabbed the closest camera I had, which was my IPhone6 and took a quick photo. It is a bit grainy because it was at night but I love it all the same. I converted it to black and white and boost the contrast.
A miniscule, flying insect with more eyes than head! 😆 Love the cute little nubs on the top! He seemed to be interested in nectar or pollen in these tiny blue flowers growing in the lawn.
Taken with Canon 6D and EF100mm f/2.8L Macro IS. Settings were 1/80 sec; f/7.1; ISO 100.
Did not realize at the time I shot the spider that it was eating a smaller insect. Lucky me! Shot with m Nikon D300s and 105mm lens. Converted it to black and white for something different. My settings were f3.5, 1/200sec, iso400.
A ladybug on a leaf. It looks almost like 2 different faces.
Used the Olympus TG-4 on microscope mode which uses auto settings but they were 1/400 sec; f/4.9; ISO 400
These guys are everywhere. I hear they have a nasty bite. Looks like this one is missing part of its front leg. Shot with my Olympus at a respectable distance.
