When will winter wane . . .

Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it.  ~Russel Baker

“Some beach somewhere, there’s a big umbrella casting shade over an empty chair. Palm trees are growing, warm breezes blowing. I picture myself there, some beach somewhere.”

Some Macro stuff - Raynox DCR-250

With winter ultimately tightening it's hold on us, there isn't much going on at the moment. Everything has just slowed right down with the short days and long nights. I hate winter but perhaps later on I shall erupt into a full on rant about why I hate it so. I usually shoot a lot of macro stuff during the cold months as there seems to be very little of anything else! Some of my efforts with my Nikon D3100 + Tamron 70-300mm + Raynox dcr-250: (I mixed some other stuff in as well.)

Just liked the light on this one  
Mynah birds wishing it was summer! 

Keep the !@#$ out! 

Wonder what he was up to?

Ants and aphids have a mutualistic relationship. Ants feed on the honeydew excreted by the aphids, and in exchange, they protect the aphids.

The aphids are those tiny green things 

The only down side to summer! This must be the last one left. 

Tiny red eye bugs - I liked the background on this one

Leaves have left

Mooo... I mean coo-coo-chirp

Enjoying the sun.
