Well, I am sitting here in relative panic mode. I just boxed up and UPSed off my 5D Mark II to Canon for a clean and check. There are a few spots on the sensor that my Sensor Swabs cannot remove. It’s been a few years so off it went in advance of foliage season. I do have the 40D in the interim, but I’ve only been using that for the insect shots I’ve posted. If all goes well, Steve Extended will be back for this weekend.
Before all that, I visited Hawley Bog in hopes of finding some rich red pitcher plants. I am not convinced the shots are worth sharing…we’ll see. On the way out, I photographed theses nice bright shiny orange mushroom. They are, to the best of my knowledge, Orange Mycenas-Myceana leaiana.
While I was at it, I decided these were a good subject to try out my new 15mm macro lens. Seriously…it’s the Venus Optics Loawa 15mm wide angle macro. It can focus within a few inches and still include the surrounds to give a feel for the habitat.
