Weekly Photo Challenge: Close

Maybe not the most creative interpretation of “Close” but a close-up of closed lilac buds!Image

Taken with my Nikon D3100 and kit lens (18-55 mm)

Join in the fun!


We have a few milkweeds in the back yard and yesterday I found them covered in Monarch caterpillars!

I took all of these with my Nikon D3100 and 50mm/1.8 lens. I believe this one I was also using a +4 macro magnifier.

These guys were really big and, sure enough, the next day they’re gone. Good luck guys!

Back in the shade that I heartlessly stole from him for the good of the picture ^_^

I was pretty neat to see the progress this one made on this leaf even in the short time I was shooting!

Such cool, bright markings.

These boys are like brothers.

The pun in the title is entirely intended 😉

You can jump in too!

Project 52 photo challenge FAQ

Hello world!

I’m taking some very good advice from a very good friend and documenting how I grow with my camera. I’ll be participating in photo contests and challenges and probably a spontaneous post here and there (as I find the time!). Any feedback is fully welcome! It can only help me get better.

I maintained my edge by always being a student; you will always have something new to learn.
