This photo is an example of the part luck plays in taking pictures. We were walking around the lake one evening, a photography walk, meaning Bill does martial arts exercises while I lallygag around, taking shot after shot before walking another few feet and stopping again. I was busily taking photos of milkweed plants and didn’t realize until I looked through them later that I’d caught a visitor in this one. Fortuitous, since this week’s theme is macro.  🙂

The photo was taken with my iPad 3 and then cropped.

Small bug traverses
Milkweed’s alien landscape
Camera spies him


  1. Alien indeed–but it invites me to gaze at it. Happy Phoneography Monday.

  2. Amazing – that’s got to be several times life size!

  3. Angeline M says:

    Wow, really impressive!!

  4. It does look like his own world. Strange to the human eye.

  5. The milkweed itself does look like an alien landscape in macro 😀 The bug actually looks more familiar to me than the milkweed 😛 Interesting shot 🙂

  6. says:

    This is so cool!

  7. Love those surprises, great capture 🙂

  8. Sometimes we don’t know until after the shots been taken, what we’ve actually captured. Cool!

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
