or, I enjoy playing with my new camera!

Spider 1

She was a brightly-colored one!  I think she might have been dead, though.  She let me get very close with the camera.  Very close.

Spider 2

Spider 3

I think this little portrait of a spider in her graveyard turned out well!


Don’t worry – she was already dead.  I sprayed this little nest at the beginning of the summer and left it there as a warning to others.  And so far, it’s worked.  Wasps quake in my presence.  Or buzz.  But that’s like wasp quaking, right?


I didn’t really sweep the mosquitos – I squished ’em.  Even this little one, after I took her portrait.  But I still think I lost the battle.  I got, like, a brazillion bites!
