Flowers and flies today. How’s that for a combo?
I mentioned I’ve been taking lots of macro photos of late. I got two of a long-legged fly. That’s their actual name. I’m not making it up. How beautiful are those colors? And these suckers are tiny. You’ve probably seen them sparkling in the sun on a leaf.
I really, really want a proper macro lens for the Sony. I’ve been using the Raynox 250 and extension tubes, but damn, I could be getting so much closer with the right equipment. *sigh* Maybe one of these days–after I buy needed new glasses, get my teeth cleaned (it’s been a year!), and take care of a couple of other high-priority items. The move north wiped me out, and though I paid off the credit cards I used to grease that move, work has dried up, and I’m just not seeing the income I did even six months ago. Trump and his fabulous economy! It’s only great for the rich, who stash their money off-shore and benefit big-time from his tax cuts.
Hey, if you know anyone who needs a good editor, pass my name along, okay? Thanks.
Oops! Drifted into politics there for a minute. Sorry. I try not to do that on the blog, because I know we are all sick (and heartsick) about what’s happening in our country. So let’s move on to flowers. 🙂
This is a purple vinca. R gave it to me in a pot, and it recently bloomed. The water drops were there; I didn’t add them (though I’ve been guilty of that in the past!). I plan to move this to the garden soon.
This hibiscus flower was in someone’s yard down the street. I miss hibiscus plants, but I recently found one in the woods and transplanted it to my yard. It’s tiny right now, but it’ll grow. I water it every day.
And here’s a beautiful purple bougainvillea. That color and the green leaves are gorgeous, right? Also in a neighbor’s yard. Flowers do well in Florida. They love the sun and humidity. This was a favorite on the photo forum.
See you next time.
