I have been busy this week taking macro shots in between work and the rainstorms. I still haven’t come up with the shot that is what I am looking for. I decided to post some of the shots that I have taken this week in my back yard and down by the lake. I have really been finding the limitations of natural light when taking macros. I was able to get a few shots but there have been a lot of deleted shots because of blurring from the subject being in motion from the wind blowing or their own activity.
The rain has been intermittent all week so I have had to look for in between times when the wind wasn’t blowing and it was light enough to take photos. I stayed close to the house and got the following shots.
I have bushes around my back porch and these ants were very busy consuming one of the buds.
I caught this salamander sunning on a chair in the backyard.
I was headed back into the house when I spotted this dragonfly catching some rays on a piece of timber next to the flower bed.
I decided to go down to the lake a couple of times when the weather permitted and got a few shots of some bushes that had some interesting shapes in the new growth.
I was heading back home from the lake one afternoon when these tiny flowers caught my attention. The flowers are actually about the size of a small pencil eraser.
I caught the next two shots early one morning which is a good time to take butterfly shots since they are waiting for their wings to dry and don’t fly away quickly.
Hope you enjoyed the photos.
