This month for the photo blog challenge the theme is "anything goes." I thought about a nautical musical theater approach, but instead I decided to explore a bit more of what I had started last month with up close nature shots. I did take it a little farther by renting an awesome macro lens and taking it out to really get into the small details of the world around me.
This bee was gracious enough to be slow moving so that I could capture this shot.
Roses are sometimes a little cliche, but the depth of field on the macro lens really helped bring a different perspective.
It amazes me how amazing even a single drop of water can be when you take a little extra time to look.
So, how long do you think that I stood trying to get a great shot of this ant before I realized that he had a bunch of buddies trying to climb up my leg? The answer - probably too long.
I've always found the symmetry and delicacy of spider webs to be intriguing, and the early morning light and sparkle from the light coming off the lake made this one work well in this picture.
