This weekend I had a fun photo session with Rocio in Kenansville, NC at The Country Squire Restaurant and Inn. Their property has a really nice courtyard in a wooded setting. We also took advantage of the amazing southern setting they have right next to the inn. There are many rows of grape vines with an ornate gazebo placed in the center of it.
One thing I love to do in the summer with my free time is take macro photos of bugs. I spend most of my summer with my family in Buxton, NC on the wonderful Outer Banks! I enjoy getting into the tiny world of crawling things and see whats happening. There are a lot of things going on in the bug world and many times humans don't really pay attention until they become a nuisance. Anyway, the colored fly was about the size of a pea and was constantly landing on a Gardenia bush. I used an Alien Bee 1600 and shot from a tripod to capture this photo. The second photo is of a baby locust again about the size of a pea. The last photo is of a common house fly on my dirty GMC Acadia. You know you need to wash your car when a macro photo of a fly looks like the milky way.
