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.
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)
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)
