From time to time I enter a picture, a flower or an eggplant in the county fair. Most of these pictures have taken ribbons. The grasshopper in the poppy won Grand Champion at the Gray County Fair. Macro photography is a hobby of mine. On most of the bug close ups I used an old fashioned Pentax w/ tripod and macro lenses or extenders. The kids at the wedding and some of the flowers were taken with a panasonic lumix--a digital camera that I am trying to master. I shot most of the bugs on a chilly morning. That slows them down enough for Grammy to sneak up on them.
