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.Β  πŸ™‚

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 πŸ˜€ The bug actually looks more familiar to me than the milkweed πŸ˜› Interesting shot πŸ™‚

  6. says:

    This is so cool!

  7. Love those surprises, great capture πŸ™‚

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