Today I got off work a little early & spent the rest of what was left of daylight outside with my camera. I didn’t even realize how much time had passed by. I spent hours in my yard by my flowers and it felt like minutes. I felt like a kid again, just crawling around in the dirt, playing with the bugs & stuff..
Although grasshoppers kind’ve creep me out when they jump & land on me, I had fun with this guy. He was good & stayed on the flower. Having objects like bugs make the pictures a little more fun in my opinion.
I really like this ant picture below, I just wish the ant didn’t move so quickly. It’s a little blurry.
I don’t have a nice expensive macro lens. I just have a cheap Semi fisheye/Macro Lens I picked up for like $35. Not too bad of an investment for just playing around with & experiencing what macro can do.
This flower below is an Amaranthus (aka Love Lies Bleeding) & it’s very fun to photograph. I noticed I have some dust on my lens, (oops) but I stil like the pic.
And below is another ant on my flowers, this time in regular color.
I love playing with the color accent setting
