Macro Friday

I can't believe that another week has gone by and I haven't posted since last Friday. Without many chances to get out with my camera, it was tough to choose an entry for this week's Macro Friday.

This is a very small Eastern Fence Lizard. This particular lizard appears to be under four inches which is on the small side. These little guys are hard to catch still!
I feel like I could have gotten a much better picture of him, if I'd been able to spend a bit more time stalking him, but this is what I have now.

Yesterday, I also saw the neatest little butterflies. They seem to be hairstreaks. I'm not sure what varieties though. Apparently, there are numerous species and subspecies. The light was fading, which didn't improve the pictures, unfortunately.

Have a great weekend and don't forget to check out

  7. Thanks, everyone!
    Courtney, I, personally, think it's because you're too scary! Just kidding!

    I do wonder if I will be able to capture stuff like this if I ever get a DSLR. My camera is so small, I don't ever go anywhere without it!

  8. Nice lizard shot! Those things are hard to catch on camera!!
    Beautiful butterfly shots, too :)

  9. Thanks, Laura! I'm honored you stopped by!
