Beads and Bokeh

Although I am a born arachnophobic, wet spider webs are one of my favoured things to photograph. The water was my doing, though. I gently splashed the spider webs with water to get these faeryish effects I absolutely adore. The occupants of the webs were grateful as it was a hot hot day. One of the spiders kept coming out and enjoy the water. 🙂

And here it is, the happy freaking monster.

Kitty Ears

My Maya aka Punkie Pie. I bought her the kitty ears when she was 3.

Now she is 9 but she still loves them and still wears them. In public. I love her so much. She is an odd mix of a big baby and independent young woman.

Also, her long, thick, black eyelashes; the first thing I noticed about her when I first saw her. ❤ Lucky little minx, she’ll never need mascara.

Up Close

Quality macro photography is quite hard to achieve without a tripod. It’s so hard to stay crouched in the grass and keeping the camera still at the same time. I could have done better. I did a little better when I photographed the butterflies, it was raining lightly, the air was fresh, it was overcast but there was still enough light. But I failed to shoot a decent photo of the bug with long antennae because it was sunny and hot outside and the sun and I aren’t best buddies.
