I Heart Macro - Feb 16

This week has been hard for me, my mother passed away Feb 9. While it was expected, it was still a shock. I have taken pictures this week, but none that I can think of close up....but then my mind is fuzzy.  I do have one that was taken at my mothers funeral. It is of a spray of purple flowers, I can't think of the name of them right now. I thought it was so pretty.

This one below is of a spider web, they are called funnel spiders I do believe. And if you wait until the sun is up, you won't see it.  I thought it was soooo coool!
This one is of flower, called  Gloriosa Superba

Here's my pal.....I was cleaning my back porch and he was

in a box....He is called a Huntsman. Needless to say...

We parted ways when I put the box outside....

But not before I took some pictures....

So there you have it...not really close ups as far as macro's...but I will be getting back into the swing of things and will have better next week.  Thanks!  For more macros, hop over to Studio Water Stone


  1. I'm so sorry for your loss.
    The spider web is very cool, but the spider is kinda creepy, lol!!

  2. So sorry to hear about your loss, condolences to the family.

  3. Ewwww, brave soul you are. I wouldn't come close enough to photograph Huntsman. Great image of him tho.

  4. I'm so sorry for your loss! The spider is sort of cool in a creepy way.

  5. Lovely images and what a brave soul you are to close in on such a spider. So, so sorry for your loss.

  6. Very nice! Huntsman spiders are fairly large arent they?
