Lepidoptera

Fancy scientific name for the family that the moth comes from. I have no idea what type of moth this is. I tend to classify all flowers as weeds and all insects as bugs. It makes my life less complicated.

These were my first real macro shots I ever took. I used a Yashica 55 ML 2.8 to do it so all was manual focus on a Panasonic G3. In the early days of micro 4/3 there were no native macro lenses so we had to adapt other lenses and the Yashica was one of the better ones out there.

Enjoy the lepidoptera!

Getting Buggy

While I was out shooting I ran into these two. While the honey bee wasn’t that interested in a portrait the moth/butterfly thing was. So I gladly snapped them. I like to thank my macro lens for being 1:1. I also like to thank the various other bugs in the area, in particular the bees for being used to idiots with cameras shoving them into foliage and not stinging the crap out of me.

Enjoy

Mothra

I know the name is Mothra but I really felt like blasting Blue Oyster Cult’s, Godzilla for some reason.  One of these I edited on my own the others I just pushed some sliders around in Nik.  I need to stop being lazy and edit on my own.
