Macro world in your own garden
Weekends at cottage offers a good change for taking photographs of nature and this spring I took a bit closer look in what is going on in my garden.
A close look at the uncut grass and... there it is, the macro world. A bit higher, on the bush leaves you may find beautiful colorful and hairy pests / caterpillars. Some of the caterpillars are smaller, some bigger, longer. For picturing longer caterpillars I used "normal" macro lens to get the whole animal into picture. And of course, we cannot get around of bees and wasps that collect pollen / farina on each flower bloom.
And as the spring is time for insects for mating, you may catch some of them in action as well :) (the picture has content filter applied, which means you may not see it because of 'adult' content, if you've turned your content filter option to on).
But not everything is nice and cool in spring (and summer), in terms of wildlife in the macro world - mosquitoes become alive as well. And if you're near areas with lakes, pond, sea, marsh, then, because of the humid air, there are a lot of mosquitoes. And they all want you! :)
