A very short walk, so just a few quick snaps.  The Vernal Pool loop, and the highlight was certainly the frogs who were exuberantly crying out for love at every vernal pool on the trail.

Jumping spider   2 comments

What I love about insects and spiders, they’re happy to visit you at your home.  This gorgeous lady came by today, even though it’s snowy outside.  Platycryptus undatus is the name, by the way.

Which crop works best?  I can’t quite resolve it.

A rainy day at King Phillip’s Rock   Leave a comment

I was pretty excited that this morning was rainy, because taking photographs like these has been on my mind for a while. Not the easiest photos to take, but it was a fun effort, regardless of the product.  What you’re seeing here is the final result of a couple of hours of effort in the rain — but I couldn’t ask for a better morning.

This is one time I wish I had a better camera — superior high ISO performance would have really improved these photos.

A manifesto for macro   Leave a comment

I’ve started a new site, edgeofthecircle.net, where I will have more writing and less photos.  Please feel free to check it out and subscribe if you want to!

As part of an application for a photography show, I wrote a writeup that turned into a manifesto for macro photography, an explanation of why I enjoy it so much and why it makes me so happy.  Here’s the link:
