Scenes from the Macro-World

It took me a little longer than usual to get to the grocery store this morning; I spent much of my time bent over, kneeling, or outright crawling to get very close to some rather small subjects. I knew from the first Eastern Comma butterfly I spotted that this was going to be a macro shoot today. Ah, the things you discover when you get down to ground level!

  1. I'd be distracted too if I saw this lot on my morning walk. The problem with low down macro for me is getting up off my knees.

    1. For some of these I was right down on the ground propped on my elbows. And yeah, it's a looooong way back up again!
