These are new edits of photos taken on June 6, 2014.
On Tuesday afternoon, we walked around Whispering Oaks Ranch where I used 180mm and 105mm macro lenses for the following shots. Not all shots are “macro”, but I used a macro lens on all of them.
(There is one other cat on the property too, but we didn’t see it. Bella is very friendly.)
I had a hard time getting autofocus to work quickly enough to photograph ants and other small critters. I “lost” on my ant subjects when it made its way onto the gravel. I put a rock in front of it and transferred it back to the pavement at which time it commenced grappling with one of its friends. I used manual focus for this shot.
We could see the La Sals all the way up. Late in the day, Marilyn and I drove the Kokopelli Trail on our way to the Castle Valley Overlook. We got this shot of Castle Valley while still driving the trail. We saw more cows. I had to open and shut a gate at one point along the way.
