a Blizzard of Flies

as i run down my usual macro-ing place
some tree in the woods collapsed due the a late night thunder rain...and it ruins my rendezvous
and there wasn't any bugs around even after scrutiny examination...but flies...
flies all over the place...because there's a carcass...couldn't tell what's was all decomposed, absolutely nasty smell!!! phew!

moments i look at it, as though it was a bee...zebra bee..then i check on my screen, hell no. it's a fly! holy moly...then, i wanted to take a second was gone...and never came back, could it be an illusion...Zebra Fly? the a beauty-queen?

 golden-d-fly!!! love the goggles. nice.

Kamen Rider!!!
shot of the day...

100% Cropped. high five to fly's eye...

Lomo Smena 8m

this is my classic Lomo Smena 8m.
manufactured in 1980, Made in USSR.
history about Lomo Company, wiki it.
rather than current lomo camera on the market, this is the genuine shit.
unlike modern lomo camera, it's not made of plastic, it's solid aluminum! sturdy and bulky! like it!

an excited thing about it, which you'll never know what you captured until you develop it.

Halo. Lomographer.

next one? saving for a Rolleiflex *sniff*

Can't Stop Macro-ing

macro photography for Nature Lovers!  

the best things of Macro photography is the similarity to another interest of mine, street photography, which both objects were captured in their natural behavior/ environment. only difference is, bug won't scold you or give you the Put-That-Thing-Away-From-My-Face look!

eye-contact with Praying mantis! see its' retina? awesome!
which i believe. this could be roaches
it's just veiling with nice looking transparent armors...
katydids (Tettigoniidae). distinguishs itself from Grasshopper with the longer length of filamentous antennae. it feeds on leaves, flowers, barks, leaves although most species are exclusively predatory! spread across North America and Tropical region.
my favorite of the day! a planthopper. albino!!! i mean white planthopper! and it has a little trunk, like a little elephant...lovely bug! and it's so tiny!
Grasshopper. a common species in Tropical region...hope to get some colourful one soon...a yellow banded black grasshopper please...looks like somebody isn't it? YES! Kamen Rider (Masked Rider)!
Candid of the day!!! hop hop away.
