After a hiatus, I've resurrected this blog! Here you'll find photos of birds, ramblings about birding trips and photos of other things I find interesting along the way.

Up Close and Personal
It was only a matter of time before I dove into macro photography. I recently acquired a Tamron 90mm Di macro lens and hit the ground running. It is already quite obvious I'll need an external flash, but here is what I was able to get within a few minutes in my dads backyard.
This stink/shield bug (pentatomidea) was relaxing and stayed still long enough for me to practice on him.
This is a fly.
I'll be looking forward to using this on the butterflies in Texas!
