Agapostemon splendens


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.

Week 32 – Becky

Future Frog

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.

Bygone Memories

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.
