Macro Experiment: Feverfew Flowers with Beetles

Macro Experiment: Feverfew Flowers with Beetles

Thurs 06.02.16 – My Mom’s garden is quite profuse with flowers of every sort right now. Near the steps to go up to the front porch, she has a spot of the herb feverfew growing. The last few times I have walked by, I have seen these tiny little bugs on the small white and yellow flowers. Today I decided to bring out my wide manual macro lens and the macro extension tubes to see if I could capture what the little beetles really looked like.

The little black and white lady beetles are lovely.

Tues 05.24.16 – Driving westbound on Hwy 58 from Barstow to Kramer Junction, I got stuck behind this rather delightful old railway car being inexplicably transported by truck rather than rail. The sun was setting in front of us, the truck was driving less than 51 mph, so I took a photo.

The Moon and the Puddle

The Moon and the Puddle in the desert

Mon 01.11.16 – While driving just after sunset eastbound on California highway 62, I knew that the new crescent moon would be setting soon behind me. As the dusk deepened, the road turned to Vidal Junction and out of the farside of my left side vision, I could see the moon. I pulled over as soon as it was safe to do so and saw this large puddle from recent rains in the desert and was delighted.

I pulled out the Nikon D800 but could not unearth the tripod from under the luggage, so here is my photo of the Moon and the Puddle.
