The ditch in our front yard is full of water from all the rain. Amazing how fast the tadpoles appeared. I tried to take a photo of one with back legs but they would not cooperate. Put my Olympus TG-4 in the water on microscope mode. Cropped and sharpened. Settings were f3.5, 1.100sec, iso800, and 10mm.
These are some tea roses that I dried. They are from a bouquet of flowers that I gave my 92 year mother for her birthday. Unfortunately, she does not know who I am anymore due to Alzheimer’s. But, I know who she is and who she was and she’ll always be my lovely mother.
Taken on microscope mode with my Olympus TG-4. Then applied Topaz Adjust 5’s Portrait Smooth filter.
An anole with a leaf or wing sticking out of his mouth. Looks kind of tired with those bags under his eyes.
Sorry so late. Lost power for while like most of Florida after hurricane Irma.
Used the Olympus TG4 in microscope mode.
I have no idea what kind of caterpillar this is, but what a spiney fellow. I also love his little pod shaped feet. He’s about an inch long and he’s crawling along a pine tree needle.
Taken with my Olympus TG-4 on microscope mode.
Two bugs on a pod having a special moment. I tried to figure out what they were, but couldn’t find the correct Google phrase, I guess.
Used the TG4 again on microscope mode.
This guy is really tiny. Had to look hard among the leaves. This is a very young assassin bug. Shot with my Olympus TG4 on microscope mode. Settings were ISO800, 18mm, f4.9 and 1/400secs. Started my processing in Adobe Lightroom (cropping etc…) then finished processing in Adobe Photoshop. Trying to learn how to use Lightroom. All the photography pros keep saying how Lightroom was a game changer for them.
A tiny little fly on a rusty chain link fence. I am always impressed with the detail the Olympus TG-4 gets on tiny critters. Used Microscope mode and the LED ring.
