Despite how much I hate bugs, I decided to choose insects as this week’s photo challenge theme with ExP (Exposed Planet).
I shot this image with a Sigma macro zoom lens 70-300mm. It didn’t allow me to get super close to the butterfly, but I still think it came out quite cute and colourful.
Sometimes like a bird, I wish I could fly away to a new place, start a new life, and be a new person. But unlike them, I have commitments and promises to keep.
Although we’re still in winter, I have begun my spring. It’s only been a few days, but I have started fresh. I have begun on my road to a new beginning. And even though it seems a number of bridges had to be burned, I am confident happiness awaits. Somewhere.
It’s always hard to take shots of bugs because I am absolutely terrified of them – and generally, when you’re stalking bugs … you have to get close to them.
But as a part of improving my photography, comes a need to overcome fears! Maybe soon I’ll have enough courage to snap photos of bees.
It’s a lazy Sunday afternoon, and what better adventure than “Bug Stalking.” I’m thinking about getting that recognized as a national sport. Pure genius, if I do say so myself.
