How about something a little different, I have never really tried shooting insects before because of the equipment used to get in really close to these little guys, but I happened along this little ladybug and was able to get this shot. I shot it hand held and at 2.8 it gave it a really cool effect.
The photographers who get really up close to butterflies and dragonflies and get those incredible portrait shots are so good at what they do and hopefully someday with some amount of patience and equipment I hope to be able to get a few wonderful shots like they do !!
But until then I will just have to settle with a few shots like this to hold me over, hope you enjoy and thanks for stoping by !!
After a two week vacation to South Florida and a week laying flat on my back from a pulled muscle maybe now I can get back to posting a few images I have been able to capture lately. First I wanted to thank my good friends and family Steve and Sharon Williams for putting up with us and showing us a wonderful time, South Florida is truly a beautiful place to live and vacation and I am very thankful of the hospitality we were shown.
I was able to get a few nice sunset shots and couple of night shots as well, I especially love this shot of the Naples pier I got late one evening as my wife and I walked along the beach. the beaches on the Gulf coast are so beautiful and the Naples and Sanibel Island area were definitely my favorite places to walk and just chill out. My son had an absolutely wonderful time filling his beach bucket with seashells and whatever else bits of debris he could find on our walks.
The area is truly a wonderful place and I would highly recommend it to whoever was looking for a place too vacation, thanks for stopping by and taking a look !!
