morning dew.

every once in a while i like to play around with my camera, learn a new setting or two, and there's no better place to practice than my yard...especially in the morning when everything is still covered with dew.

warning: objects in lens are closer than they appear.
so i'm looking thru my camera zoom lens at a lizard on the fence, trying to steady my hand and focus. i was already in close proximity, so with my zoom lens, i was right up against that lizard. i was watching him intensely and he was intensely watching me...or so i thought. in a split second he disappeared behind the fence and came back out with a HUGE cockroach in his mouth. scared me to death. blech. yuck. i almost dropped my camera. it's safe to say i didn't get the shot.
it was a little too close for comfort.

  3. Great pics! I need to upgrade my camera, the pictures just aren't HD enough :/ I had no idea lizards ate roaches, the roach I'd assume would be bigger than the lizard! at least that's how they are in NY lol

  5. Ew for the cockroach and the other insects, bugs etc. Seriously hate them! Yu must have many of those there. Luckily we don't see them as much during winter months.
    Your pictures however are really good. Congrats!

  20. I should probably take the time and play with my camera some more - you know, when I am not in the middle of a shoot. We had some technical difficulties this past weekend.
