This guy was there to greet me when I went to see my parents today.
I am having a ball with the Macro lens. WOW! Just WOW! I cannot wait to try out the telephoto, too.
The next was a pretty large bumble bee. I didn’t realize bees were so fast or so hairy.
I found Smurf Village. Couldn’t find the little blue guys though. They must have been somewhere else.
This is what Bec’s nightmares are made of. No Bec, I did not kill it. It hopped flower to flower.
It is interesting once YOU capture something in photo, it becomes yours, and you start noticing things you have not before. I have noticed the beauty of dragon flies before, even commented on a blog recently about how beautiful their pictures were, but it was not until today when I looked at my pictures that I noticed just how large their eyes are. Photographers truly do see through different eyes. I am not in the class with the pros, I will never reach that point, but I am so excited for the eyes that I see through now.
It just amazes me daily the things I am starting to see anew. From the sand on the ground, to the true beauty of flowers. I have always thought flowers were nice, but never been one to notice the shapes of petals or drops of rain on them, or tiny creatures in their habitat. I am so grateful for this photographic journey of healing and awakening to the world around me. These pictures all come from Mother’s gardening. I can see why she finds peace when working around it.
