So I was outside tonight and this baby preying mantis crawled on me. After showing my wife I let it go out on one of our sunflowers and went and grabbed my remote and speed light and made of few photos of it hanging upside down on one of the sunflower leavers. It's no macro but it isn't bad for the kit 18-140mm lens and a speed light.

Full Moon and and Edit

Last night my wife and I decided to get out of the house and go up to Lava Point. On the drive up the moon looked amazing and I thought of a photo of the moon rising over the red bluffs of the area. Well I attempted that photo tonight and the result is below. On the drive up though we stopped at a gas station and I pulled the camera out and got the first moon shot. I also did a re-edit on my favorite lightning photo from last week. Enjoy.

A storm blew in this evening and we decided to go out and see what kind of photos I could make. We ended u on the bluff shooting lightning. I have never made pictures of lightning before but it was fun and a good show.
