Macro Monday

I've been absent a bit lately.
Our whole family has been travelling abroad for the last two weeks.

Actually, I have hardly left Shakerag. And what's more, I have hardly left the house! It's just been too hot and humid to do anything.
So, no blogging, no photo-taking, no nuthin'.

Yesterday, I braved the heat, humidity, and ticks to take a walk in the woods.

A very small toad crossed my path. He was about half an inch long.

Yes, I irritated him.

He really didn't seem that bothered by the flash. I didn't like the way it turned out with the flash,
but the light was low enough almost all my flash-less shots were blurry.
It was my looking at him that he seemed to object to most.

Mushrooms, on the other hand, don't mind me bothering them at all.
These were even smaller than the toad.

It was humid enough that my glasses fogged up on me several times. I came in covered in sweat and teeny ticks.
But it really was nice to get out into the woods again.
It was especially nice after a shower.

Happy Monday!

  1. Even if he was annoyed by you, you got some great picks. I don't know if I could brave the ticks! Stay cool my friend... good to see you blogging again!

  2. Isn't Florida ticky? I hate them, but such is life in rural Kentucky, as you well know. I really must get some guineas. . .
    And thanks!
    I have to stop by your new "place!"


Thanks for your comment!
