27th of February – macro monday featuring maggots, worms and catarpillars


Happy Monday to you all!

As the weather is improving and the days are getting longer I put my boots on and get cracking at preparing the garden for springtime growth. I’m doing a lot of weeding thereby unearthing a lot of creepy crawlies, maggots, worms and the like. Lots of them move too fast for me to capture with my make shift macro lens and my phone camera. Shooting macro isn’t the easiest type of photography as is is even if your subjects are rather stationary when you’re basically sticking your (expensive smart) phone within two centimeters of the wet ground while wearing mucky gloves and being rained on by a light drizzle…

the last photo is an egg of a slug, at least that’s what I think it is, this translucent tiny little sphere is about a millimeter in diameter.

Thank you for visiting, I hope you enjoyed the little visit to the earth underneath my feet.

    Oh I can’t say these are my favorite subjects that you’ve photographed, but you’ve done a nice job getting close. It’s definitely an element of gardening, and worth documenting the things that you encounter :)
