6-6-2011 Bugs 'n Flowers 'n Stuff
I took all these out in my yard. Went out with my 300mm and monopod, looking for some birds. But there were no birds. There was one jay harassing the little yellow birds nesting in our fig tree but that was it. Sometimes our house at the top of the ridge is bird central, not today. So I pointed my lens down instead of up.
I'm thinking about giving these photographs actual titles, something I rarely do with any amount of seriousness. I once took a photo of a cup in front of a door and called it "Lethe Door For Liquor." For no reason. More recently I've been leaving photos untitled or giving them document style titles like "Newcastle Elementary Playground on 7-8-2010." But for these buggy plant photos I am thinking about stuff like "This Is A Photo About How Moths Are Mysterious," or "Sometimes Plants Look Like Cities and Insects Look Like People."
I think that would be fun.
