Past Macro Photography of Flowers and Insects

These are some of my favourite macro photos I have taken in the past using just a few macro-filters on top of a regular lens, not some special macro lens.

Aside from my excursion, I haven’t been too proactive to go hunting for good macro photos of nature. However, I have a few trips planned this summer already where I will get to see some interesting flowers, plants and hopefully, birds and insects up close.

I’ll also be better at cataloging what I photograph because some of these places have all their plants identified. The insects I’ll have to ask as I don’t have plans to be taking photos of insects pinned onto something. I’m also hoping to try some speed photography of humming birds as well.

If you know your flowers and insects, please do help me identify them by leaving a comment below. These were all taken in the Maritime provinces of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick so that might help narrow some choices. Thank you.


Hugging Avatars, Buddy Icons and Profile Pics for Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Bebo and Other Applications

From having created the Hugging Facebook 2.0 Tagging games, I thought I’d share the graphics to be used as avatars and buddy icons. Unfortunately, not all the graphics were big enough to be used as avatars and buddy icons, although I did set a high standard to make them 256 pixels squared rather than the smaller 128 or 96 pixels squared that many applications ask for. That way, it’d save some people some tech hassles, disappointments and so on.

To get the icons, please:



Super Mario Bros Facebook Picture Tagging Meme

According to Wikipedia, the most sold video game ever is Super Mario Bros, whether alone or in all its subsequent upgrades. Even if you have doubts in Wikipedia, the numbers are so staggeringly wide in gap that they can’t be wrong in terms of order. Regardless, this Facebook tagging picture meme is for those fans of Super Mario Bros. I didn’t label the characters because if you play the game, you have to know the characters, whether they are friend or foe, what special powers they possess and how you can nullify or put it to use to succeed in the game. If you generally know all that, labeling the names is just wasted space.

Here’s how to get this graphic for your Facebook fun:
