Macro Moments: Week 16

“Will you hurry up and take the picture already? I got things to do and places to be.”

“Just hold tight for two seconds, you look fabulous”

If butterflies could talk, I’m sure that’s the conversation we would have had as I was getting this shot.

Below is my entry for the Musin’ With Susan Macro Moments Challenge: Week #16

Thursday Doors – September 1, 2016

Having a diverse group of friends is always a good thing. This door is the door to the Communications and Public Relations offices at my college. The offices for Computer Science, my major, are clear across campus grounds.

I had never stepped even close to these set of doors until I went with my friend who is a Communications and Public Relations major.

A diverse group of friends is always a good thing.

52 Week Photo Challenge Week 1 – Black-And-White

I’m not really one for cold weather – I deal much better with the heat. On this particular morning it was pretty cold and I think this bird and I were on the same page when it came to how happy we were about being outside at the time.

In this photo the bird is fluffing up its feathers in an attempt to better keep the warmth near its body.

Macro Moments: Week 8

I intern at a Nature Center and before I started the closest I had ever been to nature was attending summer camp when I was in middle school.

One woman at the Nature Center tends to the birds and part of that responsibility is to check the bird boxes on the property. I think most people only have ever seen birds out their window as they’re driving, let alone have ever seen a bird’s actual nest eggs.

At the Nature Center part of our job is to protect the wildlife in the area and sometimes that means getting up close to make sure everything’s alright.

Below is my entry for the Musin’ With Susan Macro Moments Challenge: Week 8.

The nest eggs pictured above are bluebird eggs and just for context, bluebird nest eggs are approximately the size of, and weighs a little bit less than, a quarter.

Photo was taken on a Nikon D3300 and a 18-55mm Nikkor lens.
