On August 21 I wrote about a very simple and cool macro lens that can easily be put on my phone camera. I’ve continued to have great fun with it and carry it with me everywhere. Phone + lens + keeping my eyes open = lots of fun! I continue to be impressed with how easy it is to us and with the remarkable resolution—if I’m careful to hold steady.
Here was the latest, a little critter crawling on the table out back of the house.
Thanks to Sam Jaffe for helping ID this amazing life form as a Spiny Oak Slug (Euclea delphinii). Note: spines can cause reactions in some people! It apparently favors the Boxelder Maple under which I found it. I’ve not yet seen a live adult but the photographs online show a gorgeous moth will be forthcoming.
