RECENT HIGHLIGHTS

NOT A TIGER BEETLE
This 3/4th inch incredibly colorful beetle was a complete surprise to me. I shot it just before I built the Phoenix adapter with my old lens. I have never seen this beetle before and have yet to identify it. IT IS NOT a regular Tiger beetle. Tiger beetles are hunters, large and fast. This beetle is more related to the long-horned beetles by it's body type. I will have to get back on this one--it's a once in a time shot and was quite a find. Click on it for bigger view.

I re-touched this with Virtual Photographer, and awesome little plug-in for Photoshop. It is very easy to download. I'm not sure of the URL so just google it if you want to enhance your shots. It lets you re-touch pictures with amazing flexibility and it's entirely free. A tool inside Photoshop with more power then some photo-editing programs and tons of abilities. Compaire this tiny jumping spider shot with the Phoenix adapter down below before I started useing Virtual Photographer. (I did do some other touch ups on this picture without it as well)
