52-7 – Grass Swirls, Spider Close-up, and more

August 21st, 2011 Permalink

This is a bit of a grab-bag of pics today, since I managed to get off my butt and shoot a few times. The spider shot was using a reverse-mounted lens technique where you take a normal camera/lens setup and then using an adapter, mount another lens onto the one that is already on the camera. The result is a very high magnification, but it is a challenge to get decent shots. I’m not thrilled with this one, but it’s also a pretty good start. The ‘Grass Swirls’ are from around the neighborhood, and the frogs and grasshopper are from the NCBG.
