Macro Monday 07/26

On Saturday I particpated in Scott Kelby's Third Annual Photo Walk and was able to capture some great macro shots. I don't have a macro lens but my telephoto does a pretty good job at capturing macros. Here are my favorites:

Butterfly #1:

I followed this butterfly around until it settled on this beautiful purple flower. And as you can see it decided to pose for me.

Butterfly #2
I thought this was the same butterfly but as I took a closer look, this butterfly had even more beautiful colors. I waited until it spread out it wings. The colors on the flowers and the butterfly were amazing.


As we strolled along the photo walk, another photographer noticed this huge moth hanging out on the lamp post. I did not have my telephoto lens but was able to get close enough to focus on its beautiful cream colored body.

To see more beautiful macro shots head on over to Macro Monday
