random, new lens experiments and rambling

This is a drive-by photo, taken from the car.  This enormous Caterpillar sits in a field.   Its size defies logic.  And in its own way, it is beautiful.  I imagine I am about as tall as the scoop, or whatever that is called.  Blade.  I think it's called a blade.  I am impressed with how the lens & camera grabbed the image!  Maybe now I can go whale watching and have the whale show up larger than 1/2 inch.
Forever fascinated with insects and flowers:  Imagine gathering in such fantastical environments!
Eggs.  Yes, one of my favorite subjects.  Mmmmm.  And they are gorgeous.
This is the first photo with the new lens.  Will I ever, ever, ever? figure out "order" of MY choosing on this format????    I did love the beans in the foreground, and the giant "Mammoth" sunflower in the background.  Of course, deciding on which to focus is always a good thing.  Hahaha.

It is hot and muggy today.  My intention is to get lots of painting done this morning, well, afternoon, now.  I am having "buyers freak-out" over my new lens.  Apparently, I need to go on a longer rambling photo shoot to allow inspiration and excitement to completely take over the apprehension.  I am back to carrying the camera with me.

Wish I could zap myself back to Deception Pass so I could re-walk the path into the forest and take shots of the bridge and the tidal currents beneath, and the clouds above.

And I know that this path only goes forward, a step or a leap or two at a time.  This all feels a little out of sync.  Entering my world again with a different viewpoint...

Glad to see you got the camera working and took it to the next level. Take deep breaths. You will put that lense to good use as the fall colors develop and delight your eye. x0x0x0 N2

Ooh, I can't wait to see the pictures you take after you "learn" how to use the thing. Each picture is beautiful and amazing in its own way. I'm discovering I seem to have a thing for egg photos. What's that all about?

Practice. Practice. Practice.

The re-entry is the hardest..
I can taste those eggs, smell them, feel them warm in my hands..
That was a smile
and a heartfelt one!
