About This Blog

I began this blog in 2011 in an attempt to improve my photography and showcase all of California's 58 counties. I didn't quite make all of the 58, I missed three and I will try to rectify that in the coming year. I'm not sure how much I improved my photography because I always seemed to be in a rush.
In 2012 I plan to take more time, perhaps not post every day (this is one thing I did accomplish in 2011). I also plan to expand beyond California and include images from other parts of Western United States. I will continue to include a map showing where I was when I took the picture. I will keep commentary to a minimum, long photo essays will continue to be at Martha's Musings.

What a great shot! The bug's shadow is perfect, from his antennae all the way down to his wings!

Wonderful close up

Joan said...

Love the antennae shadow on him.
Great photo!

The ant looks so much bigger in person as it stands upon the flower leaf. Yet is shadow, it has that look we expect in an ant - small with not much significance in our eyes. I like the contrast!

Fabulous! The color is beautiful and the shadow looks other-worldly. Just another example of your wonderful eye seeing things most of us would miss -- thank you for sharing!!

Stunning colour offers a dramatic palette for the shadows in the small world!
