This is a desert-y plant..we call the "bottlebrush". Hummingbirds love this, and despite it's wispy look, is really a tough customer a hardy
survivor.

love,
patti

Delicate little butterfly that was flitting about and lit in front of me, which to me was just a wonderful gift. Hope you like it too.

200 mm
200 ISO
f/5.0
Shot in RAW converted to JPEG.

PP: crop, sharpen, gaussian blur layer with masking off of the butterfly to set it apart from the background to a larger extent.

Beer glass with strong washing up liquid solution, bubbles made by puffing down the narrow end of a turkey baster into the solution. Then swiftly grab the camera and shoot away before they all burst. There's now a heck of a mess in the kitchen to clean up!

I find the contrast of the spiders known and "Daddy long legs" or "cellar spiders" interesting. They are delicate yet they are a predator. I find that photography brings me closer to the nature of things and opens my mind to how unique everyday items can be.

Image

Camera Model: Canon 50D
Lens and focal length: Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 @ 71mm
Aperture: 8.0
Shutter Speed: 1/50
Sensitivity: ISO 100
Processing: Cropped a little, increased saturation by one and slightly adjusted the tonal curve to bring a little contrast to the spider.

The first thing that came to my mind after reading this month's topic was a newborn. This is the newest member of my friend's family, Timothy.

Lens: Canon 60mm F2.8 Macro USM
Mode: Aperture
Aperture: 4.5
ISO: 1600
