Birds from the Coast

If you missed last week’s post, that’s because I was busy taking pictures during a family trip to the Oregon coast. If you missed this post, that’s because it’s for the birds – seagulls, pelicans, whimbrels, and western sandpipers, to be exact!

Spider Mites

Occasionally when I am outside looking for bugs to photograph, I will notice tiny yellow specks moving around on the ground. Last week, I found several concentrated around some pollen that had fallen from an iris flower, so I took the opportunity to get a closer look at these creatures with some macro photographs.
