A little time-out from normal place-based blogging for some miscellaneous macro images.  I’ve been out hiking lately, as the weather has turned gorgeous.  And when I’m hiking, well let’s just say that I’m easily distracted by the small.  So here are a few close-up pictures from recent days.  Enjoy…

 

I think this is a goldenrod spider, which can change color depending on what flower they choose to wait for their prey on.  In this case he's camped out on an arrowleaf balsamroot on Surveyor's Ridge above Hood River, Oregon.

Delicate forest flowers, I think they're called fairy bells, blooming along the Oregon Coast.

Remember to go to the high-res. versions, where there are easy options to purchase these as a fine print or download, simply click on the image.  They aren’t available for free download, sorry about that.  Go ahead and contact me if you have any questions or comments.  Thanks a bunch!

  1. I am blown away!!!!! I saw the first shot and I said to myself “I can do that” (ahem) 😀 And then as I started to scroll down further I started to get smaller and smaller while my eyes got bigger and bigger…This is amazing work and I really look forward to more Macro fun as you called it! 😀 Thank you for setting the standard so high – just when I was starting to pat myself on my latest collection I brought back today!
