A Very Tiny Flower

I spotted this in my yard the other day. The flower is about as big around as dime.


Bah Hum-Bug

Another image that I made the other day while photographing the Christmas cactus blossoms on my front porch. This is high-magnification macro image and it is the full frame as captured by the camera – no cropping. For a scale reference in this photograph the ant was about half the length of a grain of rice. Look at the ants on the flowers in yesterday’s post to see their size in comparison to an entire blossom.


Christmas Cactus

They have all come into bloom on my front porch this past week so I went out there and snapped a few shots in the late afternoon sunlight the other day.

That’s Just Dandy


Fun With Flowers

This a test shot I made of a setup I was putting together while helping a student in my studio the other day.


Tool Time

I was testing a light the other day and the closest thing for me to grab and put in front of the lens at the time was a pair of locking pliers that was on my desk. Turns out I really liked the look of the industrial texture and mechanical fittings on the pliers as subject matter.

A Touch of Color


Hibiscus

I had a few minutes of free time at home the other day so I took advantage of it and made a quick trip around my back yard with a macro lens. This hibiscus blossom was one of the highlights of my little excursion.


Lost and Found

Looks like one of the neighbor kids lost a little rubber ball in my yard. Of course when I found it I had to take a picture of it.


Down on the Ground

After all the rain finally subsided a few mushrooms sprouted up in my back yard. I decided to take a bugs-eye view shot of one of them just for fun.


Tiny and Vibrant

I have no idea what the name of this tiny little flower is but it’s certainly a strong visual change after 3 days of posting black and white images here.


It’s the Little Things…

…that most often capture my attention when I’m in the woods with a camera.


Living Color

This is a 1:1 macro photograph of a small lichen that I found growing on the trunk of a tree.  I really like the range of colors that existed in the scene. The candy-cane red contrasted so nicely with the minty green parts of the lichen and also the vivid green moss on the tree trunk.
