Walkers, with el Lucero as a backdrop
Wednesday was a busy day. Walking for a few hours behind Acebuchal in the morning, then after a long and delightful lunch at El Cerro, out with Frigiliana Camera Club on a macro photoshoout at 5 until dark, along the Rio Higueron below Frigiliana.
Blue, Magenta and Yellow, on Green.
I found dabbling with macro to be quite fun. It makes you look at nature in a different way, concentrating upon tiny details and subjects that are normally overlooked. The beauty of tiny wild flowers and the fascinating world of the insect are the domain of the macro photographer.
A tiny Fly, magnfied to show its neat and mechanical structure. Large brown eyes, compact black and white hooped thorax and abdomen, and shiny, transparent wings with black veins. An amazing and efficient design.
Greenfly on Vetch
I find Greenfly quite distasteful, an infestation on an otherwise lovely flower. However it is morbidly fascinating to examine them closely, they are like tiny cows gorging on sap. But note the larger individuals above and separate from the herd, one with wings and one without. Intruiging.
