Mother Nature is dying. There is no doubt of that.
At any rate, I love photographing wildlife. And so what I find I sometimes have to do is look down at my feet or at the vegetation around me to search for insects, arachnids, terrestrial molluscs, and other such little critters if I want to get any photographs of animals at all.
And, once again, I am reminded that I really do need a couple of new lenses for my camera. I can do okay with the lenses I have, but they don’t have the qualities I need to record the finer details as I labor to grab some memorable shots. To that end I will be purchasing (I hope) two more lenses next month. We’ll see.
In the meantime, I’ve been reading journals warning that even the planet’s insect populations are plummeting.
