Portuguese Macros

Photography

While I was in Portugal earlier this month I packed with me every single item of photography ‘equipment’ I have. I say ‘equipment’ mostly because it’s just a couple of lenses and a GorillaPod! Anywho, I took it all with me, including my old macro add-on lens. I haven’t taken it with me to Portugal for a while. Figured it was time it had a little bit of a holiday too.

Unfortunately, I forgot, that it gets incredibly windy over by my parents’ house! So I made the most of the days when there was just a light breeze and took some macro shots.

Beautiful blue agapanthus – hopefully there should be more of these popping up on the patio.

Nectar

Drops of nectar collecting on spider webs caught in an early morning.

Spider on daisy

A tiny little spider on the purple daisies in the garden. I loved how it stood out against the purple of the flower.
