Find the lizard

at Three Rivers Petroglyphs park, NM. Some of the lizards are melanistic and harder to spot than this one.

Sure! I have to admit, it was a "happy accident". I was shooting just random things and I told my dad to turn on the water so I could test the focus. Well, everything looked good so I went to snap the shot and my dad turned away to sneeze. He took his hand off the knob and the water stopped as I released the shutter. And BANG, Happy accident.

I do also recommend anyone who's looking to switch to dSLRs to look into the Nikon D70. I had some of their glass so it was a natural choice for me to move to the Nikon dSLR. The shot was actually taken with a Lensbaby lens (www.lensbaby.com). The lensbaby has made me fall in love with digital photography. It turns your expensive camera into a Holga.

What is macro photography? I have that option on my camera but never used it... I'm a big fan of "auto" because otherwise I make it look worse...

Ohhhh nevermind... I did that whole google thing I hear about from the youngin's...

http://www.photo.net/macro/primer

This is actually what I've been wanting to do... maybe I'll have to play with it when I get home...

macro moss

Interesting url on macros, SilentPanda. Give it a try, but I don't recommend using all his examples!

Here is a bit of moss, interesting enough to me to macro, seen on a foggy day walk this am:

This shot was taken with a Canon Powershot S500. I couldn't quite get the focus right on the moth, but then this isn't even an SLR camera. This comes from high in the French Alps.

A photo my Dad took of these eggs earlier actually won something in the Valley Land Fund Wildlife Photo Contest or something like that... I can't remember what place it got, though...

Oh yeah, Moxie... My avatar came from a picture of yours... It was actually with the same camera and lens as the frog eggs, but I was just messing around and didn't have a tripod or anything, so the area in focus is very, very narrow... Apple's products are definitely not camera shy...

This was taken by reversing the D-Rebel kit lens, holding it against the body of the camera by hand. (its a cellphone about the size of a SE T616, btw)
