To help forget about the COLD and be reminded of warmer times, I present the following closeup images of insects. All taken in the 1990s using Kodachrome 64 or 25, Nikon F4, and 105mm micro lens. Their world is very interesting. More tomorrow.
Posing, Emine Moth
Small fly on thistle.
Very tiny leafhopper...about 1/2 the size of your pinky nail.
There is so much shade in my backyard that no flowers will grow except right by the patio where the sun still reaches most of the day. Tall-stalk flocks love it, are pretty much indestructible and bloom for almost a month. All kinds of flying critters visit.... I'll have some photos of them later. These were taken with the Nikon 105mm macro and 70-200mm zoom with Cannon macro filter.
Had an engagement session in Kauffman Gardens last night. Although it was a tad cool, the lighting was wonderful... cloudy is sometimes good. Great couple, getting married in August in Ransom, Kansas... I will enjoy the trip. Before they arrived I grabbed some snaps. The roses are peaking now. This is Princess... in house security for all things Kauffman. Very friendly, staff adopted.
Visited Kauffman Gardens today to do some senior pictures... but before Katie arrived I roamed around and enjoyed the scenery. The roses are just ready to open and should be gorgeous next week. If you have some spare time... visit... 4801 Rockhill Road.... just east of the Plaza and South from the Nelson Gallery... and it's free. Extremely well maintained.
