Caught this striped bandit trying to
pollinate get busy with some flowers in the Getty Museum Gardens. Despite only having the Canon T2i kit lens at the time, the macro capabilities were pretty awesome, and also pretty focussed, seeing as the zoom factor was around 50mm or so because my girly fear of flying insects with stingers humanitarian spirit didn’t want to disturb the pollination process. If you look closely you can see his mustache!
Macro photography opens up a whole new perspective on the world, and shooting scenes like this really gets my palms itching to spring for a nice Macro lens with some IS. “Someday she will be mine, ohh yes, she will be mine.”
Minor editing in Photoshop. Color adjust, dodge and burn, slight “lomo” effect.
