Included in my last post is a photo of something . . . . . . . . . cree—py. One person saw a pirate’s face in the photo. Sister Clara came the closest, guessing that it might be the head of an insect. It is actually a caterpillar that was creeping along the concrete at Gunderland. (Thank you to the rest of you who guessed, as well.)
While taking these photos I was flat-out on my belly on the concrete outside the garage. My own creeping/following the caterpillar gave me a chance to try out two of my photography accessories: 1. extension tubes in combination with 2. a 50mm f/1.4 lens.
Should I do this again (a caterpillar shoot), I need to train the caterpillar to stay still! Imagine me flat out on the concrete with the camera lens almost touching the concrete and just a few inches away from the caterpillar, AND having my toes being my rudder/steering wheel changing my direction each time the caterpillar changed its! I’m certainly glad no one pulled into the driveway catching me involved in such a silly activity!
