Bugs And Frogs – The World of Macro!
So I picked up a new lens this month and wasted no time in going out into the wild – I mean some of my favorite places around Taki – looking for all manners of critters and flowers to take with the EF 100mm 2.8L Macro IS lens. Boy that’s a mouthful!
It’s pretty amazing what you can find just by going to a semi-secluded area in the country fields and sitting still for about 5 minutes. At the very least a dragonfly might come roost on you if frogs don’t swarm over your feet first!
It gave me a twinge of sadness to know I won’t have it so easy when I go back to Seattle. I never realized I would be taking pictures of all the frogs that serenade me to sleep every night 🙂
Just a quick warning, this post includes closeups of spiders, bugs, frogs and other such creatures; for the squeamish please browse at your own volition!

All the different colors and types of dragonflies is mind-boggling!
It’s really hard to realize sometimes just how small these guys are. I always try to put something into the picture for perspective, and this time it’s the hydrangea blossom. Each petal is about the size of my thumbnail!
The next post will be all food macro 😀 Stay tuned!
