The private life of plants (theme)

2011.03.16

I decided to take a miniature approach to today’s ‘looking inside from outside’ theme and peered into some of the plants in our front garden. I found all sorts of creepy crawlies and managed to catch a few well focussed frames in between gusts of wind. Both photos have been cropped fairly heavily as I couldn’t get close enough to make the bugs large enough in the frame, even with my macro lens. The little black fellow I found inside a daffodil is absolutely tiny – no more than 2 millimetres long!

onlyricky I know what you meanT!
that beetle is really damn small!
My first tries on it, on a yellow flower (these species like yellow flowers), got all out of focus :(
but you did very well well!
nice private life uh? ;)

SADHYA I love these Helen. I really would like to get in as close as this. May I ask what lens you are using? Were you using Manual focusing?
