spiders, snakes and bees - oh my! - The Dainty Squid

spiders, snakes and bees - oh my!

Saturday, May 26, 2012

Each year I try to take oodles of pictures of nature and all the little things that spring and summer bring. One reason being - I really like to (clearly!) and the second - looking through these pictures in the dead of winter is THE best anti-depressant.
Have a fabulous Saturday!

ps. Did you spot the spider in two of these photos?

  5. This snake picture it's by far my favorite! Here in Greece we have 1-2 very poisonous snakes and all the others are totally harmless. So I love "playing" with them, the sense of their skin on my skin is just dreamy!

  6. Ha! That last photo is hilarious. I love finding faces in nature.

    I'd love to be able to take photos like this - do you use a macro lens? (I'm new to the DSLR world)

  9. I didn't find the spiders till you said something, but very cool! In a creepy, I-would-never-get-that-close-kind of way, but still very cool. Good photos! I think my favorite is the mushroom on the ground.

  10. No, I didn't spot the spiders - at least not until reading your comment. Then, I came back and found them! Really cool! And I must say, you are a brave girl! I would never a snake in my hands! No matter if it is not poisonous; I'm just too much afraid!
