Someone told me there are still creatures out there. Beautiful creatures, flying around. With feathers. I believe these creatures are called “birds”. When I’ve gone out to take photos lately, every once in a while as I’m staring intently at a tiny patch of ground or scouring an individual leaf for a buggy critter to photograph, I hear one, or even see one. Maybe someday I’ll try taking a photograph of one.
In short…I’m still having fun with my new macro lens! One of the things that attracted me to birds when I first started in photography 15 years ago was the sheer variety.. Particularly as a “new” birder and photographer, you just never knew what you might come across on a given trip. That’s obviously the case with macro photography. I’m finding I never go more than a few miles from our house, and indeed, many times I never leave our yard. There’s just so much to explore and photograph when you “think small”.
