Chryalis of Gulf Fritillary

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.

Lying in wait

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.

Do you mind? I am eating lunch.

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.

Bathing Beauty

Went on a photo club field trip with my girlfriends to Japanese gardens.  They had these iguanas roaming free.  They came in bright yellow and green.  It was really cool to see.  Shot with my Nikon D300s.  Settings were f4,1/640sec,iso400 and 105mm.  Boost the contrast and sharpened so the lizard stood out.

Tennessee Sunset

Went to Tennessee to see the Fall colors.  Unfortunately, we did not see much in the way of fall colors, but we had a great time in the cabin, hiking and watching the sun set from our balcony.  Shot with Olympus TG4.  Settings were f/5, 1/400sec, ISO100, 10mm and set on sunset mode.  Boosted the contrast in Photoshop.

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.
