    Nice b/w florals, an encouraging sign of spring.

    Just a brief public service announcement…

    Macro shooters often try refrigerating insects to better control them as subjects. It never works well. I just want to discourage anyone who’s tempted by the idea. It’s not only a mean thing to do, but not aesthetically pleasing.

    “A good naturalist can spot close-up pictures of refrigerated subjects every time,” says John Shaw in his classic book Closeups in Nature. “Imagine refrigerating your kids until they could not move and then photographing them – surely you could tell that they didn’t look right in the resulting photo.”

    Thank you everyone for continuing to be humane!

    Yep, only live subjects found in their natural environment for me.

    Speaking of which...
