Floating Lily

On a previous trip visiting family in India, my brother-in-law invited me to go to a place where he liked to hike and camp. It was a jungle just a little outside the city of Bangalore. It was actually quite odd to go to such a remote place while being so close to such a…

Potter’s Blue

I was looking back over some of my earlier pictures and came across this one of a potter wasp on a blue, possibly purple, allium flower. I had just gotten my Sigma 150mm macro and was testing it out for the first time. This was when I realized that depth of field was so impactful.…
