Close-Up & Macro

Close-Up & Macro Photography



Hot days have turned in to non-stop rainy days. I went out to the patio to photograph a lime that just sprouted. The rain drops were a bonus.

Turk's Cap

Turk’s Cap

This is another image taken in my studio with my white box. This time I photographed a Turk’s Cap that was growing in between some hedges in the front yard.



The first challenge to come in was for a Ladybug. I had no idea where to find one but I got lucky and spotted one right off the bat.

Christmas Lights on Christmas Eve

Fairy Lights

I thought it would be interesting to show what a Christmas light bulb looks like so I grabbed my camera and macro lens and captures this image from a bulb.



I recently walked out of the garage early one morning only to find this very nice specimen. He was so still that I was able to grab my camera and take this image. I decided to name him “Fred”.

Pedernales Falls State Park

Bug Moon

I was excited to hear that we were going to have both a “Super Moon” and a Total Lunar Eclipse yesterday evening. Then, clouds moved in and ruined the photo opportunity.

Begonia - Backlit at 3x Magnification


There is a pot of begonias in the entry way to the house. I was needing a subject to practice my macro skills and use the new light box that I had just built. So, I plucked one of the begonias and set it up.

Itsy-Bitsy Spider…

The nursery rhyme goes something like “The itsy-bitsy spider climbed up the water spout. Down came the rain and washed the spider out.”, however, this one was on my garage door.
