First Try at Black and White Wednesday

Color is what usually draws me to a photograph. Although I can appreciate good black and white photography, suffice it to say that it is not my thing. But since I have been trying new things lately, I thought I'd give it a try.
So, here are some attempts.

As anyone who knows me is aware, not only do I like insects, I like many arachnids, not including ticks and turkey mites. I thought this web was especially nice. I think it's a web of a Black-and-green Garden Spider.

This is a Black Swallowtail Butterfly pupa.
These awesome little caterpillars are devouring my friend's dill much to her granddaughter's delight.

This is an Easter Pondhawk who is a beautiful bottle green in real life.

Well, it's too hot to do anything today. I think I'll go turn the A/C down colder. Go check out The Long Road to China.
At least you can do that from the cool comfort of home.



  1. Nice! Love the spiderweb shot. So glad you jumped in!!!

  2. Bugs are so cool..... that catepilar one is my favorite!

  3. Thanks! I love me a good bug!

  4. Wow! Can't wait to see what you come up with for your 2nd try! These are awesome! So many people never figure out that the key to good black and white photos is texture! You nailed it!

    (not that I'm any expert, mind you)
