Day Sixtytwo: Ladybug
I photographed this ladybug crawling on a screen door at the back entrance of my home. It's not too bad considering I did not have a macro lens. I shot it with a 17-55mm zoom that has NO macro setting. It never would have worked on film, but digital, is great. The file size was such that I cropped out a huge ammount of the image to prent what you see here. Film would have been far too grainy and soft. I have a macro lens, but it's for my Minolta film cameras. This photo was taken with a Nikon that does not belong to me. I need to get a Sony digital slr to be able to use my collection of Minolta lenses.
Now, that recipe I tried yesterday. It was pretty good, but I cannot rave about it. I'm not sure I would make it again. It was good, but seemed to be lacking something. There just may have been too much spinach. I have more that I will try again tonight. I will tell you one thing: the Red Stripe beer sure was good!
