Come take a walk with me through the websites of four photographers who are sharing their love of macro photography every other Monday throughout the year. We shoot what we love, what makes us happy, to hone our skills, to stretch our minds and our imaginations, and because it's who we are!
"Can't see the forest for the trees."
I was outside a few days ago looking for a subject for this week's Macro Monday post. I was also looking for the elusive humming bird my husband swears is there or maybe even the hummingbird moth he's seen near my butterfly bushes. Since the hummingbird feeder and the bushes are in close proximity, I camped out there with my camera. I did see a few monarch butterflies, but I shot them a couple of weeks ago. The only other flying creatures I saw were two whites moths, that is until this little guy showed up. I didn't really think he or she was very pretty and it was definitely NOT was I was hoping for. So I waited and waited and waited. Then I thought, why not? Take a picture. What can it hurt? I had no idea of the details that would illuminate themselves once I put the image on my computer.
Look at his furry little head and furry little body. Then notice his striped antennae and huge eyes.
Come in a little closer and take a look!
I was so glad that he decided to stick around and that I finally noticed his beauty even though originally, I'd passed him by.
