A picture's worth 1000 words … week 22 ...

A photo a day … every day … in 2014.


Day 145:  Up close and personal with a praying mantis.



Day 146:  Lantern light.



Day 147:  Taking a moment to stop and smell the roses.



Day 148:  Through the trees.



Day 149:  Master 16 and his war wounds.



Day 150:  Random flowers growing in the bird bath.



Day 151:  More flowers … are you sick of them yet?

    1. I usually use a standard 18-55mm lens … but for the close ups I use a 105mm Macro lens. The macro lens makes all the difference … I love it.

    1. It's a beautiful variety … unfortunately it's in a hidden little corner of our garden so we often forget to admire it.

      I found the praying mantis fascinating … I never realised their eyes were quite like that.
