A Wet Morning

First, if you had difficulties opening up yesterday’s post, I apologize. Apparently there was an issue with the link and when one clicked on it, it said that nothing was there. After being alerted to this issue (late last evening), I went in and corrected the problem. So if you missed the wonderful crab spiders of the prairie, you can click on this link:  “Friends of Purple”

Today’s post, captured on the same prairie hike, features a dew-covered moth that was resting below a wildflower bloom:

I sometimes am asked “Why do you arrive at the prairie so early? The flowers aren’t going anywhere!”. I think these images answer that question very well … early morning dew, be it on flowers or insects, can be wonderful!

Photographic Equipment Used:

  • Canon 5D Mark 3 body
  • Canon EF 180mm f/3.5 macro lens + Canon 1.4x TC
  • Vanguard Alta Pro 283CT carbon fiber tripod, with 3 Pod H-3 ballhead (this is my new, lightweight macro setup)
  • ISO 400
  • Aperture f/22 (top photo) and f/18 (bottom photo)
  • Shutter 1/25 sec. (top photo) and 1/30 sec. (bottom photo)
