I sent a photo I took into the local paper a few months ago, and the other day I get a call telling me I’m going to be published. Sweet.
How to make pigs fly.
A Spider’s Lunch
I saw the most intriguing spider outside as I was taking out the bin bags so I ran back in to get my camera but by the time I got back, it had gone into hiding. Not 5 seconds pass until I see a commotion on my front door between a different spider and a fly! I took some pictures using the Olympus E-PL1’s kit lens (14-42mm). It’s not a macro lens, but it did a pretty good job of capturing a lot of the detail quite vividly. (click any image to see it larger on Flickr)
Hoverflies on open Lilies.
I’m ill today, and in being so there is not much to do so I decided to play around with my PEN camera! I had the intention of making another stop motion (which I will still likely do), but I ventured into the garden and saw that the Lilies my mum planted had opened up and were infested with these little hoverflies.
So I took some pictures, but I’m only really proud of one. (click image for full size)
