School is out, and today was the first day of my summer vacation! I was so excited to be able to go out first thing this morning for a hike. I decided that today I was going to switch gears and start using my macro lens. It was not an easy transition, but I was able to get a few shots that I was happy with:)
I had forgotten how much I love looking for insects to photograph! Last year when I got my camera I started photographing flowers. It wasn’t until my hiking partner, Bill, introduced me to macro photography that I learned to love the beauty of insects, and even spiders! With his help I have even learned to identify some of the insects. Bill has a great blog, The Rural Path, where he shares his wonderful photos, knowledge, and love of nature.
