Natures Little Wonders

We found a spider in the house today, a tiny little guy that Mr. Rogue removed to the back yard. I don’t kill anything, or I try not to, instead we just capture and transport. Since he was such a cool little guy, and since the baby was sleeping, I grabbed my macro lens to take a few photos. He was tiny… yes that is a garden hose he is standing on.



I have always been very interested in all types of photography but Macro photography (taking pictures of tiny things) holds a special little place in my heart. I think mostly because you get to see a world that we normally cannot see with a naked eye.



I actually hated spiders for a long time that is I did until I saw one through a macro lens. Now although I cannot say that I am in love with them I have found a way to find them fascinating.



I don’t have the right equipment to do super macro photography but after playing around with this spider. After finding and falling in love with Thomas Shahan’s work with bugs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wqRn3at0H60. And after seeing these incredibly awesome photos of snowflakes http://www.flickr.com/photos/chaoticmind75/ I decided to ask for a few things for Christmas. Hopefully I will be posting much cooler macro shots soon.

Although I love the face of this jumping spider, they can pack a punch when they bite. Look up the harm they can cause when bitten. You won't die, but OUCH! is all I can say,
