Now that the weather is finally warmer on a consistent basis, I’ll have more opportunities to crawl around in my backyard. I’m not so fortunate to have one of those amazing high end cameras to do incredible macro photography with. I’m just working with a camera phone which I’ve been able to get some pretty decent shots, especially for references. I’m sure this shot will find it’s way into one of my drawings. I’m envisioning a busy little bee on top of this dandelion. 🙂
It’s not even March yet and little creatures are already making their way out of hiding. I have to admit, I’m not too fond of spiders but I have a passion for small things in Nature. Little creatures and plants that may often get over looked for bigger game, fascinate me. You should see me in the summer time, crawling around in my backyard with my camera phone (I seriously need to get a real camera) trying to snap pictures of beetles, dragonflies, bees and tiny flowers. I adore little things in Nature, so just the mere size of this creature had me snapping pictures as it crawled up my wall rather than shrieking in horror and trying to get my cat to get rid of it.
