Love it when my orchids are blooming. Since I put them under a bush they bloom all the time. Shot with my Nikon300s.
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.
Over the holidays my son and I went kayaking. It is so much fun. I really need to do it more often. Saw three 6′ gators sunning on the banks and tons of painted turtles. Good times. Shot with IPhone6.
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.
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.
Took a four mile hike while camping in Flagler Beach. Saw this little guy on the trail. He was very busy and really into his work, as you can tell by the pollen all over his face :).
My settings were ISO 200, f/8, 1/200 sec at 260mm (70 – 300mm). Applied Topaz Adjust 5’s Pop Photo filter.
