    Great shot. Macro still seems so magical to me, something that would seem to take a set of skills that I do not have. I love it, but don’t see myself attempting it anytime soon.

    • I love macro, Emilio. So much of what I see when walking is macro, although the big picture is beautiful as well. This was taken with my Nikon and telephoto. I use my iPhone for macros, too. I have a set of Olloclip lens that I can add to the phone for macros, but as I have to take off the case as well as remember to take them with me, I don’t use them as much as I could.

        Well, if you can get results like this with your phone and lens, you should have them with you at all times.

      • This one was with my Nikon and the telephoto, but the funny thing about macros with a telephoto is that you have to be some distance away. 🙂

  3. Isn’t that the truth. I find the joy of photography is in the joy of sharing a moment. Beautiful photo and quote, Janet.

    🙂 Great picture! The little fellow looks quite busy and you captured him at the right moment.
    HAPPY weekend, dear Janet! 🙂

    • I’m so glad you like it. You have a wonderful weekend, too. It’s been an excellent one so far, albeit rather cold (freezing this morning and supposed to be the same Sunday morning.)

  5. The quote demonstrates such a unique and interesting perspective.

    • I think it’s true that sharing a photo makes it even better, but people bring their own perspective to it and make it their own. It’s always good to know that people enjoy a photo.


  6. What an insightful quote, Janet, and your photo proves it right.

  7. Excellent. It is exactly what we do. Will repost the quote one day soon and link back here.

  8. […] I see something special and show it to the camera. A picture is produced. The moment is held until someone sees it. Then it is theirs. —Sam Abell (reblogged from This, That and the Other Thing) […]

    so absolutely true!
