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.


Most Likely To… The Evolution of a Facebook Tagging Meme

Note: Since this posting, I have evolved Facebook picture tagging memes on my own ideas far beyond this concept I saw. My ideas involve real world and life actions rather than just associating ideas. They are listed under the Action memes category, involving what I call Facebook 2.0 tagging memes.

The pictorial Facebook tagging memes that have been going around in many variations seems to have evolved into that common high school year book feature, the Most Likely To… page. I saw one just hours ago, but it was so poorly done (mostly due to almost unreadable small type) I went and created my own, text, picture compilation and all. Here’s how to get it:

  • Click on the picture below to get it at full size.
  • Right click on that picture and save to your computer.
  • Upload it to your Facebook profile.
  • Tag your friends or let them tag themselves.

Please click here for a complete list of over 100 Facebook picture tagging memes on this site with which you can use for fun with your friends.

In case you don’t recognize some of the people in my new version, they are as follows, left to right:

  • Top: Peyton Manning, Wangari Matthai, Osama bin Laden, Paris Hilton, Jet Li
  • Middle: Pamela Anderson, Bob Dylan, Oprah Winfrey, the current Dalai Lama, Sue Johannson
  • Bottom: Claudia Schiffer, Martha Stewart, Bill Gates, Anna Nicole Smith, Barack Obama

You can Google these people if you want to know more about who they are, and maybe guess why I’ve put labeled each as such.
