Photos: 10.14.19

I returned to my favorite park and got a fabulous photo of the green lynx spider. It was resting on a leaf, enjoying the morning sun. They are SO large and impressive, I can’t take my eyes off them when I see one.ย  These beautiful spiders rarely bite humans, and even if they do, they are non-venomous. You’ll just swell up a bit, and that’s it.

I named this photo “Blowing Smoke Out Your Ass.” ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  It’s an orb weaver. Also non-venomous.

A carpenter ant. This is a photostack of two pics. They have to be identical (no moving legs or antenna), then Photoshop can blend the best parts of them together. I’ve been using this technique a lot lately, to get the best photos I can. The green lynx spider pic above? Photostacked. ๐Ÿ™‚ Same with the orb weaver. When you take multiple photos of a subject, sharpness isn’t always global. Photostacking allows you to get as much sharpness as possible when shooting macros, which always have a shallow depth of field.

Two green darner dragonflies, hanging from a plant. Yes, photostacked. ๐Ÿ™‚ I used two pics for this one.

Finally, a hoverfly. This is the first time I’ve photographed one. I was thrilled.

See you next time.
