I’m going to call this a daisy. It might not be a daisy, I don’t really know. I don’t even remember for sure which lens I took it with, so the one listed below is not much more than just a somewhat educated guess. Educated in that I know which lenses I own, so there’s a pretty good chance it was one of those.

I think this picture would have been better had I not clipped off the end of that leaf. Dang.

Wait, what?? This blog is still getting posted to? Man, I thought it was dead there for awhile. But then, BAM, just like that, a new post.
That’s right, folks, I’m getting back on the horse! The horse meaning, of course, the habit of occasionally posting pictures, maybe a few times a week if you’re lucky. I spent some time out of town over the holidays and all that, but I’m back now. Perhaps eventually I’ll even toss up a couple photos from that trip. But, not today. I haven’t even downloaded them from the camera yet, honestly. Hopefully soon, we’ll see.
In the meantime, here’s another insect and a flower. It’s true, this one is very similar to a photo I posted a long time ago. But, while it was taken at the same location (the Rose Garden in Woodland Park), it was taken about a year later, using different equipment. So it’s totally fair game. Because, you know, it’s all a game, with rules and stuff. And I hate breaking the rules.
Have a great weekend everyone! I’ll try and put up at least two posts next week, but I totally want to ease everyone back into this, so I’ll definitely take it slow.

So I always seem to gravitate towards posting some kind of macro shot, either of a bug or a flower (or, well, both..) on Fridays. Not exactly sure why I feel that way (that’s a total lie, I know exactly why, I just don’t feel like sharing), but it’s the truth. And, I know, this isn’t Friday, it’s Wednesday. But it might as well be Friday, because I’ll be out of town the next couple days, and thus I won’t be posting anything. Which means that you get to look at this little guy for the rest of the weekend.
This is the first picture I’ve posted (and among the first I took) with my new (to me) Tamron 90mm macro. So far, I’d say I’m reasonably happy with it. I had some decent results, but I also had some that were less than stellar. I’m not going to blame the lens for those just yet though, and to be fair I’ve only taken the lens out on a couple walks around the neighborhood, and it’s definitely shown some promise. Hopefully you’ll all get to see some more pics from it in the coming weeks and months and years (I know, bold statement, given that I’ve only been doing this blog for just over a year now.)
Have a great weekend!

Yeah, I know, I know. Another picture of a daisy. I told you: they will never end. You’re lucky that I’m at least trying to space them out to only come once every few days. It could be so much worse, you don’t even know.
Since there’s really not much to talk about with this picture (hey look! A daisy!), I guess I’ll try to come up with something else to cover. Oh, I know! Whitefish mountain resort (as in, the physical mountain itself) has a twitter feed! Either that, or it has cleverly decided to commandeer a human to write a twitter feed, phrasing the tweets as if it were coming from the mountain itself. I’m leaning toward the former, but I can’t be sure. Anyway, the mountain stumbled on my entry yesterday, and kindly linked to me. You can see it here: http://twitter.com/SkiWhitefish/status/5801182897 . Terribly exciting, right?? I know!! The most unexpected part is where all the traffic that came via the twitter feed comes from. About half of those people are from… wait for it… MONTANA! Okay, not very unexpected. But I had to fill up the space somehow.
