Strega Jewellry's Blog

jewelry, beads, stone lore, music, kids and nature


I found a connection of bloggers that love macro and every Sunday they post a macro photo that they really like.   I decided to join this little group of folks.   So here is my macro photo of the week.    I’m a little late for Sunday, but, better late than never.   

This shot was taken when the boys and I freed the butterflies we had hatched in their butterfly pavilion.   This little fella would NOT fly away.   What a perfect opportunity  to get some great macro shots!

No Pictures, Please

Is he not cool?

  1. He is truly amazing. He looks like some kind of futuristic aircraft.

    • He certainly looks like some “otherworld” creature.

    • I finally had to SHOO him away. He was so friendly! I had some awesome shots that I’ll never get close enough to take again! He sat on my shoulder, in my hair and on both little grandson’s fingers! I put all the pix in a FB album and shared with everyone I knew! What a very cool hour we spent with him!

  5. Hi Strega. Like your macro above. That’s a hummingbird moth I think they are called. If you would, I’d like for you and your macro buddies to check out a macro blog that I’ve started this past week. I’ve not had time to post all of my photos on wordpress yet, but there is a link there to a web page with all of my shots. Check em out and critique them for me. I need the help. Nice Pent you made ;~) .
