    Tis' the season for flowers & bugs

    Yep the dandelions are popping up now. I saw a bumble bee today which I don't normally see in April here. But I saw this bug collecting some pollen on this dandelion, I assume it's some kind of bee. I got nice and close as I could with the macro. I'm pretty happy with it overall. It was cloudy...

    Oh Hello Mr. Dragonfly

    It's been many, many years since I've last taken a picture of a Dragonfly. A friend of mine (who is a photographer) said once you find one and it if it flies away, just wait. They always come back to the same spot. That's exactly what I did in this case and sure enough, it came back to same...

    Top of the World

    I debated where I should share this photo but I ultimately decided to place it in the b&w gallery because when I took this shot I deliberately wanted it to be in black & white. I was walking about and noticed this tiny big chilling out on top of one of these leafs from a blooming tree and for...

    Finally, a Monarch

    For years now I've been wanting to get a picture of a Monarch butterfly and while visiting the Hampton Beach in NH yesterday, I saw one drinking some nectar from these large red clovers on the boardwalk (or cement walk) and he stayed there for a while so I was able to whip out my 70-200 and get...

    Not sure if this is considered a macro or not but its a close up nonetheless. I saw this little guy walking up the power meter on my house just minutes before a severe storm approached. I really wish I could get rid of the shadow from the siding on my house and I tried so hard in Photoshop but...
