I don’t mean to complain, but I have a hard time when our weather turns cloudy and yes, dreary for more than a day. I don’t think a person moves to the desert to find overcast days. Anywho it was a welcome respite when the glorious West Texas sun reappeared yesterday afternoon. We have had some in the 40 degree nights, leaves are turning and falling and I know that my subjects for my macro world will slowly but surely reduce. I guess they live here for the same reason as me.
My camo colored praying mantis ( I have named him Parson) was out enjoying the sunshine and preying on edible passersby. He accommodated me as I donned my 105 macro with 1.4 extender and settled to with in 3-4 inches for a nice closeup.
Oh it feels so good to be green and live at least one-half of the old national park signs: “Take only photographs and leave only footprints!” Now, to work on getting rid of that huge footprint we have left.
