Yes I thought this title might attract some attention… Well my first photo is of a pretty Butterfly as I thought I needed something nice for you to look at when you first arrived here. So why have I headed up todays post as ‘Bugs’. As you have most likely have worked out by now I’m so enjoying my new hobby of the camera and my macro lens…This means I can get really close up to those little creatures living out there in the growth and it’s amazing what I’m finding in my own garden!!

However before taking pics of these little creatures I’ve got to start understanding my camera and how it works along with the macro lens. The other week I went as you know from my previous post on a ‘one to one’ tutorial with Daniel Bridges and this past Saturday off I went again this time on a one day Macro course with 9 other persons. Oh I so enjoyed the day…the morning was spent indoor at the Parks centre where Daniel discussed the various aspects of the camera, answered loads of questions and then he went on to show us slides that he had taken at the same time telling us the different settings etc he had used to achieve these wonderful pics…what an inspiration and something for us to aim for.

In the afternoon we then went out into the park where we scrambled around looking for insects, bugs and any other ‘things’ to photograph..what fun!

So from the many pics that I took during our rummage around sometimes laying flat out on the ground to get the pic. or leaning over nettles and brambles I did come up with some that I’m quite pleased with. Do remember that some of these insects are very tiny and move so quickly it’s not always easy to get that ‘perfect’ shot and also I’m still very much a beginner…

These are a couple from the garden

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my ‘little creatures’ and thanks as usual for visiting me and for leaving your comment..

  1. Oh Bev!! These are fantastic!! I am just so proud of you!! You are doing wonderfully!! I told my hubby I want a macro lens now…you are such an inspiration 🙂

  2. You are doing a wonderful job of your macro work Bev. I think it’s time I had a new camera too, both mine are a few years old now and the technology is improving all the time. I couldn’t take anything as close as that with either of mine. In fact my small cheap camera is better than the older more expensive one.

  3. Bev, your photos are brilliant! You´re right – the insects move so quick and are so tiny, though you´ve managed to make these wonderful shots! WOW! Can you tell I even have problems with taking photos of the big animals at the zoo? LOL
    I hope you have a great weekend!

  4. Bev, your photos are fantastic ! You have a great talent, and even though you still ‘feel’ like a beginner, your shots say something different. I also can’t wait to see some photos with your new camera!

  5. Bev your photo are PERFECT!! I’m just amazed at all the detail you capture 🙂 I’m so glad you had a smile at my stupidity, I’m laughing about it also now, but wasn’t about an hour ago 😦 Why did my silly son have to be that honest, my fault I taught him to tell the truth *lol* Have to add that Poppy is STUNNING.

    Hugs Sonia

  6. You’re doing a fantastic job with those macros, Bev! You’ll have to give us some lessons! Love that butterfly 😀
