Apologies for the super late post.  I just got my new phone today, a Galaxy Nexus S, and I’ve been playing around with it a bit much. It is also my GF’s birthday, so, stuff had to be taken care of.

Anyhow, this was a picture shot at this massive art place in upstate NY, called Storm King art center.  They have a massive expanse of land, and they have massive artwork all over the place.  I don’t think we even got to explore the whole place.  In one area, I just noticed a bunch of insects, bee’s, lady bugs, butterflies.  I sat there observing, and I decided to just start taking photographs.  I don’t have a true macro lens for my Pentax, but the DA* 50-130mm lens proved to be a worthy lens.  Below is one of my personal favorites from that set.

One of my personal favorites, shot at the Storm King Art Center in The Hudson Valley, NY. (http://www.stormking.org/) It’s a massive expanse of a space, and the fields were brimming with life.   It took me a good while to get done taking photos of bees, lady bugs, and of course butterflies.  View my photoset and see what’s what.  I personally love the photographs that came out of that trip.  I used my Pentax K-20D with a DA* 50-135mm Lens, processed in Lightroom.
