31st January , 2009. Ash Island , Hunter River , newcastle nsw Australia.

It was hard getting out of bed this morning. I have been so tired because of the hot weather. But I eventually dragged myself out of the house and drove to Ash Island.
I used the foldaway diffuser on the flash. Maybe it is too bright. I am going to make a diffuser from a milk carton and see how that goes.

Anyhoo, here is the first one of some seed pods.


Everything seemed to come out all dark this morning. I really like dark pictures but am not sure about the technical side of things if I have to print them.


This spider was on a diseased branch that looked like it was covered in something like aphids.
She also had what looked like a sac of eggs. I am not sure.




  1. great photos, like it very much, based out of S.American?
