Morning Friends

Summer allows me the luxury of early morning hikes. I’ve been carrying my 85mm Nikkor Micro Lens and working on some macro shots. These are handheld shots, so I’ll give myself a little credit for some patience and willingness to sort through a lot of bad photos. Both of these shots are within 2′. The Rainbow Bluet (I think, they take on so many color phases, I find them hard to identify with certainty) was occupied eating breakfast allowing me to move in close. The Eastern Red Damsel played tag with me but still gave me  couple of good shots. I call them “wisps in the breeze.” they are so small they are virtually transparent.  Spotting them is like catching the winds movement. The camera aids the eye in bringing so much more wonder into view.
