Periodic photography

I also enjoy taking pictures of bugs and plants as a beginner macro photographer. I currently have a standard Canon T7 camera and 2 kit lens, as well as JJC extension tubes. 

I have some of my favorites here, as well as on a small Instagram page, @smolw.orlds


Small Milkweed Bug (Lygaeus kalmii)

There are what seems like hundreds of these guys on various plants in my yard. They stay very still, so they were honestly the perfect subjects to test out the extension tubes with. I used both 12mm and 36mm extension tubes with a 18-55mm kit lens.

Purslane Moth Caterpillar (Euscirrhopterus gloveri)

A few photos of the lovely hoard of these caterpillers during the 2022 monsoon seasoon in Tucson, AZ. I took these photos using a Canon T6i that I checked out from the University of Arizona Library.
