My Favorite Summer Vacation Images

Posted: September 1, 2016 in Uncategorized
Well it’s September and my summer vacation is over and time to get back to work.  I got a lot of shooting time in June, but July and August were really hot so I didn’t get out much.  But pretty happy with the images from my June shoots.  This summer produced more bugs shots than I normally find.  And here are my favorites. All images shot with my Nikon D7000 and Tamron 90mm Macro Lens.

    Beautiful photos, but not what I expect when someone says they are going to show me their vacation photos. LOL

  3. I don’t know what that top plant is, but it is awesome, Mike! The rest of the photos are just beautiful. I’m watching your processing videos. I love that you keep everything straightforward and simple. I got my first bug shots this summer. They are so exciting. I can hardly wait to see what Fall and Winter macro shooting brings. Plus, I’m going to Hawaii soon.
