More Macro

As I continue to practice taking pictures of very small things; I went back to the same flowers where I found the aphids, this time intentionally looking for them. Found this little guy out saying ‘hello’.

While I started taking photography more seriously; my perspective was that of a historian. The goal was to document the places I was going and what I was doing as a record for my self and to share my adventures with others. Continuing with the hobby I found that there is a lot more than just taking an posting pictures, there are some very technical skills needed as well as an eye for ascetics which make photography and art. It is something I have been practicing and working towards becoming better at, and this is a picture that I am quite proud of, as it the culmination of many hours of practice.

Aphids

Continuing on the theme of bugs; I took a picture of dew on a wilted flower that I thought looked very picturesque. I didn’t notice until looking at it closely on a large computer monitor that the flower has some little aphids crawling on it.
