Default hike in Northern Virginia

most of the shots here are my vivitar 90-230 close focus. I was hoping to get a lot of good macros but seeing mainly tiny ones reminded me of how much I could use a better maco (perhaps tamron 90)


funnily enough, I thought this tree made a good picture and when I got home I realized someone thought it made a good home






couldnt get this guy to sit still long enough to help my jittery hands, he was rather small but his web was impressive

not sure which one i liked best








this one came out too dark when compressed to jpeg, but oh well. I still liked composition.


I had a fun day, hope you enjoy these.

Looks like you had a fun hike. Love the dragonfly, the butterfly and the rodent checking you out from his home in the tree.

Some really nice fruits of a great hike!

The squirrel snout at his/her door is priceless!
Nice shot of the Red Spotted Purple butterfly enjoying minerals in the mud.
It's really hard (for me) to get close enough to get a good shot at an Eastern Amberwing dragonfly - they are so small & skittish. But yours look really good.
Also really liked the composition & textures on the sedges shot.

I like the composition of the last shot too!
The butterfly is a standout, and don't you just love it when you
get an unexpected bonus like in the first shot!

That first one is priceless! It's always fun to come home with unexpected bonuses like that. And I love the butterfly, but the whole series is nice.
