Everyone is enjoying the warm March days we are experiencing in Northern Illinois. Including this tiny nature spirit, sunning himself in his Black Walnut tree home. His head is all of 1″ tall. He opened his eyes long enough to acknowledge me, then went back to his sunny half-sleep.
Why don’t you see if you can find some of the little folk enjoying the weather as well? You can head out with a macro lens and a decision to look small!
I set out that day armed with only my Lensbaby Velvet 56 – a neat specialty lens that gets great close ups that are sharp yet velvety smooth at the same time. It performed well for me in the outdoor world of trees and bark that I was exploring.
The bark of the Black Walnut tree loves to lift off the trunk in graceful curves.
