Ariana and I stayed up late the other night to catch fireflies. I sometimes called them lightning bugs which she picked up calling them "light bug" or "firefy". It was cute, she really enjoyed it.
I tried to get some pictures but it's hard taking night pictures...and fireflies are elusive! I did get this shot of on in the jar and one outside the jar lighting up at the same time.
Silly bugs! It was so much fun though, our yard is full of them!
I also found myself staring into the centers of my petunias while gardening the other day. I found these photos fascinating. These were not edited in any way at all. These are raw photos, no cropping, color changing etc. Most of my photography is that way. I don't like to mess with the original image that I see in my viewfinder. Sometimes I'll adjust the lighting or crop it a little but most of the time it's pure photography, untouched.
And yes, I love macro photography.
Love, love, love!!!
