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.
How beautiful – and a macro too. I’ve never seen one like this.
Deb, it was interesting that this iPhone image was almost better than one I did with my (handheld) 35mm with 3 closeup rings.
WOW! What an incredible creature–it seems like some sort of flower! Thanks again, John, for letting us see what might pass right by 🙂
It was amazing how “fast” it did crawl too. In the several minutes I was getting my other camera ready and set up, the critter crawled about 14″.
That is gorgeous!

When I first saw the picture, I truly thought it was a Christmas decoration! So stunningly beautiful! Thanks for stopping to really take it in…for all of us!
