I love going out in the spring and summer and taking those macro pics of the bugs and tiny wild flowers. One of my favorite pastimes.


Always help someone, you might be the only one who does.

I've been so busy that I don't know if I found a rope or lost a horse.

Yesterday I reached the end of my rope, I just hope there's an Arabian on the other end.

Sometimes lifes aggravations exceed the number of available cuss words.

I was taking a walk during the break between the classes I teach at the local community college and ended up strolling along side a couple of geese and ducks. The geese always stop by on their way north this time of year so get ready all you who live in the northern climes - here they come. Spring can't be far behind.

:o LOVING the macro!!!  I've tried some macro with my lens reverse-mounted and it is NOT easy, haha.

I find macro to be a challenge but quite rewarding when it works.  Using a tripod greatly  increases my chances for success although it is somewhat of a pain to haul around. Also having a lens that you can stay back a bit from your subject is nice.

It's the depth of field that's the problem for me. :P  So shallow it's INSANE.  I know a lot of people do focus stacking but I'm just too lazy for that ;)
