Lens-Artist Challenge #130- Close Encounters Thanks to Anne Sandler for hosting this week's challenge and for her excellent explanation of the difference between close-up and macro photography. It was very informative! I love doing macro shots. It's like looking into another world to me. Sure, most of my macros are of insects and flowers. Those... Continue Reading →
Cee's Midweek Madness Challenge: Close-up or Macro I love a good macro. I believe Cee said something about not using flowers or insects. I get it, no worries, but it puts a crimp in my macro options.

I've been having a "Wild Kingdom" kinda vibe around here these past two weeks. Insects and spiders have been making their presence known more than usual for some reason.
