Week 13 — Macro in Mono

Beetle in Flower at Selby Gardens, Sarasota.

I don’t do a lot of macro photography but really enjoy seeing other photographers’ macro shots.  On a visit to Selby Gardens, I practiced using my macro lens but with limited  success.  Definitely needed a tripod!  But I found this image was interesting as the beetle appeared to be floating above the flower when actually he was crawling around among the pollen filled petals.
