Can you see me?

I never get tired seeing the Anole’s.  Especially when they change their color to green to hide from you.  They are so delicate.  Shot with Olympus TG-4.  Settings were f4.9, 1/50sec, ISO1600, 18mm.

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.

Grasshopper with a single antenna

This little guy did not like me taking his photo.  Every time I tried to get a shot of him, he would move around the chain link to hid his face.  This was the only one I got with him looking at me.  Didn’t realize he had one antenna until I brought the photo up in photoshop.

Boost contrast, sharpened and cropped.  Shot with my Olympus TG4.  Really need to get my Nikon out 😦

Settings were f4.9, iso500, 1/400sec, 18mm and microscope mode.

Wildflower Garden

Our Alaskan Cruise ended in the seaside town of Seward, which is known as the Mural Capital of Alaska.  The town currently has 22 murals.  It was named “Mural Capital of Alaska” in 2008 when it had only 12.  I would have loved to seen all 22, but my time was limited in Seward.  You can read more about these murals here.

Glacier Bay, Alaska

The family went on an Alaskan cruise on the ship, Norwegian Sun, that traveled from Vancouver, Canada to Seward, Alaska.  If you have never been on an Alaskan cruise, you definitely need to add it to your bucket list.  We were so fortunate that the weather was clear all six days.  It was really hard to pick a photo from the 429 I took on this trip.  The views are spectacular (especially in person).  Really going to be hard to go back to work.  I took this with my Olympus TG-4 on landscape mode.  Boosted the contrast and cropped.

Happy Clicking!

Young Assassin Bug

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.

Hanky Panky or Get a Room! or Do you mind?

So many titles to choose from.  Roaming around the yard of the house we are renovating when I stumbled upon these two little love birds. This is a photo of two air potato beetles getting it on.  At one point the bottom one looked like it was trying to knock the top one off.  Processed this photo in Lightroom.  First time using Lightroom to tweak my photos.  Opened it up in Photoshop to sharpen it some more.  Used my Olymput TG-4 on microscope mode.  The settings were iso500, 18mm, f4.9 and 1/400sec.

Happy Clicking!
