My longtime flickr contact rosemary* has posted a spectacular flower image taken with a Canon 5D Mark III and a Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro lens. She is, hands down, the bokeh queen.

Flickr member ChaoticMind75 has taken some amazing images of snowflakes in Moscow, Russia with a Canon PowerShot A650 (point and shoot camera). The entire set is here: Snowflakes and snow crystals.
Macricostas Preserve, Steep Rock, Warren, Connecticut. Did a short hike today and found a few oak leaves on the ground with Taphrina caerulescens. It sure is pretty for a fungal disease.
Adult Male Jumping Spider at Sunset – Phidippus mystaceus I saw the above video of Thomas Shahan’s work on wimp.com this morning. Not only do I love Thomas’s photographic work but the narration of the video is spot on about photographic process. He really walks the walk and he’s got a great attitude for any [...]
Macricostas Preserve, Steep Rock. Washington, Connecticut. Went back to the same tall Queen Anne’s lace plant today with 5D and 100mm macro lens both of which I’m out of practice using. I think the shots with deeper focus are better but I somehow liked the shallow depth of field and blur in this one and [...]
Glasswing butterflies An incredible collection of glassing butterfly images. I’d never seen this species before, it’s spectacular.
Flickr photographer Littleland has some amazing butterfly shots, done with pocket cameras like the Canon S100 (above). Getting an image of a butterfly this good with any camera is a great achievement but with a pocket camera with an LCD viewfinder it’s incredible. Wow.
Photojojo’s Brilliant Rubber Band Lens It will be interesting to see if this thing really works. I have a bumper on my iPhone which will probably raise the lens too far off the camera and my guess is any iPhone case will change focal length on this lens. Worth $15 to find out. Photojojo’s site: [...]
Nikon Small World 2011 Alan Taylor over at the Atlantic has put together another excellent collection of images. Many of these are made by attaching DSLRs to microscopes although a few look to have been made with regular macro lenses. Spectacular images of a world within our world. [via Gary Sharp]
Candies Photographed in Water Drops PetaPixel has a nice post on how to shoot water drops on a glass or acrylic surface so that objects placed underneath the surface seem to be contained in each drop. This would be a fun setup and shot to try with different objects and various kinds of lighting.
Mt. Everett, Massachusetts. This lichen was on the side of a hut on the Appalachian trail on the northeast side of Mt. Everett.
Translucent Ants Photographed Eating Colored Liquids Incredible idea, beautiful macro photography.
Small Worlds The Nikon International Small World Photomicrography Competition recently announced its list of winners for 2010. The competition began in 1974 as a means to recognize and applaud the efforts of those involved with photography through the light microscope. Peering into the small worlds of animal, plants and minerals using many techniques and different [...]
Sharon, Connecticut. The Sharon Audubon Center has over twenty injured raptors that we love to visit from time to time. The bald eagle is magnificent as are the great horned owls. This summer, on our way to the raptor cages we passed a small butterfly garden and given that we had some rented camera gear [...]
This first batch was taken this winter with a Canon G11 camera on a hike in the Woodbury Audubon Center, Woodbury, Connecticut. The last two were taken this winter with a Canon G11 in the Pine Swamp beaver pond near Cornwall, Connecticut.
Spectacular macro photography Looks like a Russian or Greek site. Amazing work. [via Greg Newman]

Bryan makes this as simple as it can be. Very well explained. Everyone should try this although maybe not by a freeway and maybe on a day that’s not so windy. Great stuff. Check out some of Bryan’s other videos on YouTube.
Warren, Connecticut. I was going through some boxes of saved stuff (I have many, too many) and found a piece of The Berlin Wall that my friend David Darling brought back from Berlin for me in 1989 when it came down. If you don’t know much about The Wall you might explore the Wikipedia entry [...]
