Sorry I haven’t been able to post to my blog page for a few days but been busy at my real job and couldn’t find any free time. This blog takes some time but it is fun and I enjoy sharing the beautiful things I find on my hikes. Macro hike  (4 of 38)

I had a chance to take a short hike out the railroad tracks near my home after work today and I only took my  macro lens with me. I always thought I had a good eye for finding some of the minute and hidden things in nature but the macro lens has opened a whole new world to me. So many things I have seen before look so different through the macro lens. And looking close with the lens has allowed me to discover things I never knew existed. And almost in my own back yard.

Today I photographed some flowers, daisies, clover, some more wildflowers, a mushroom and this foxglove. They look so different up close. TMacro hike  (2 of 38)hey show a more delicate and complex beauty than when seen with the naked eye.

I also photographed some critters at the small ponds along my hike. I found a few of this baby american or wood today near the ponds. The tiny toads were probably just leaving their aquatic lives behind to live as adult toads on dry land. Macro hike  (26 of 38)

I was disappointed to not find a lot of dragonflies hovering about, but it seems they are more active on sunny days and few were to be found on this cool and overcast afternoon. I still was able to capture a few damselflies along thMacro hike dragonfly (1 of 1)e pond shores. These are truly exquisite creatures seen up close. Also tooks some more photographs of some bugs, moths and even a small grasshopper.

I didn’t stay out long because there was rain in the forecast but looks like it is going to miss us. It was still nice to see a whole new world of nature’s beauty through camera’s macro lens.Macro  hike grasshopper (1 of 1)
