Little Green Spider

I took this photo back in 2011 as I was walking a nature trail one evening. I used a Nikon CoolPix 4600 set on macro. In this post I resized the image and tried sharpening it up a bit but the sharpening gave the pedals a “halo”, which I will have to figure out why later. For now here is a little green spider.

Daffodils Through An Old Lens

Today I had about an hour to play with in between varies chores and social obligations. I grabbed my D60 and an old Nikon 35mm film camera lens and set off to get some snaps in. I do not know about all cameras but when you mate a manual film camera lens with a modern DSLR the light metering can be less than optimum. So I snagged an app for my iPod that came in very handy today. The first photo is an unedited but slightly cropped shot from today. The second is what the app looks like on my iPod. I will try it out with my extension tubes as I shot macro later this Spring.

The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Reward

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Reward.”

Engaging in nature photography is my way of slowing down, keeping things simple, enjoying the moment and simply being. And when I see something for the first time, or in a new light, that is my reward. So when I was photographing these brown wasps as they feed among the White Aster I learned they are more than their reputation, they are a thing of wonderment.
