Sunshine’s Macro Monday #18

On days when I cannot get out on the trails for a hike, it is fun to go through some of my older pics and compare them to what I am doing today.  Sometimes, I am surprised that I got an occasional decent shot.  Often, I am humbled by what I thought was a “good” shot.

My entry for this week is a green bottle fly shot back in 2015, when I first starting playing with macro photography.  Yes, for me photography is enjoyed way too much to consider it work.

Anyone living in the Tucson area and wanting to learn more about the world of macro, check out this 5-day workshop with photographer, Mike Moats.  Here’s the link:

I am not connected with this workshop in any way.  I have learned much about macro photography through attending one of Mike Moats workshops and also his online videos.  Well worth the time.

Bellflowers on a Vine

Sunshine’s Macro Monday #16

Can you believe it is November already?  Since I have been posting a lot of autumn colors on my other blog site, I decided to go with a bit of purple for this week’s Sunshine’s Macro Monday.  I think these are bellfowers on a vine but I am not sure.  Please don’t hesitate to let me know if they are not.  This photo was taken in September while in the warmth of Dallas.

What are you bringing this week? Post anytime throughout the week and as often as you’d like.  I truly enjoy seeing all your close-ups.
