I Heart Macro 10-07-12

studio waterstone
Hi and than you for visiting my blog. Its been a few months since I last posted any "I Heart Macro" pictures. I have had a rough year, especially this summer. My beloved dog Maddux has been in renal failure since a year ago June. He lost his battle August 28th, 2012. I had been caring for him for months, giving him fluids and many medications, cooking a home cooked kidney diet for him, and giving him all the love he could handle. It was precious time, and I wanted to spend as much of it with him as I could. After he passed, I just didnt have it in me to even think about going out and taking pictures for quite awhile. I am trying to get back in the swing of things, and some days it feels good to be out and about. Other days, I am just still so sad and emotional. throw in a few viruses, pneumonia and sick people in the family, and it takes the wind out of your sails. Enough said, on with the pictures, which is really why you are here!!

 This bee landed right next to me on a dead tree. He even let me get my macro lens out!
 Surprising to still see flowers and bees when its in the 50's outside!
 Loved all the holes in this leaf and the background bokeh.
 Empty pods and pretty background colors.
 FLowers in beautiful shape with the cold nights we've been having.
 Loved the leaf stuck in the webs.

 Spider on the tree right next to me.
Loved the web with all the golden hued leaves behind it.

I am so so sorry for your loss. I know first hand how hard it is to lose a fur baby. I'll keep you in my prayers.
Love, love, love the leaf pictures. The detail is incredible!

What a lovely composition of photographs - truly inspirational! And, I'm sending out love and healing vibes your way. Loss is never easy,...doesn't matter if the ones you lose have fur, feathers, scales or skin,..it's a tough process!! Hang in there!!

Love the leaf and I've only ever shot a bee with my telephoto lens, then cropped to bring it in close (I'm a big baby). Plus I love the spider web shot. As for the spider, I agree with the saying "We have nothing to fear except fear, itself; and spiders!" You are brave for not doing the "icky spider dance" and getting the shot.
