Fall color in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan is always a pleasure to see. I found this scene with a nice dark sky as a backdrop to help set off the colors even more.

There’s something special and wonderful about dusk in Michigan during Autumn. I found this scene on a waterway in the Upper Peninsula.

Autumn in Michigan is a great time to go for a drive as this photo I took clearly demonstrates :)

I found this unusual looking plant recently near a Southwest Michigan lake. I’d be interested to see if anyone knows what this might be :)

I found this colorful caterpillar on a reed recently in a wetland area of Zeeland, Michigan. Perhaps someone reading this can comment on what type of caterpillar it could be.

I’m not certain of the type of bug this is, but I found it climbing a cattail in a wetland area of Zeeland, Michigan recently. It was small, approximately 1/4 inch long. I used my 50mm macro, having to stretch as far as I could to reach the tiny creature.

I finally had the opportunity to photograph Cardinal flowers growing in the wild. I’ve heard how beautiful they are, but seeing is believing. They thrive in wet conditions and that’s where I found these, near a bridge in a wetland area of Zeeland, Michigan today.

Macro Beetle

I found this beetle on top of a flowering cluster what I believe to be Queen Anne’s Lace today in Zeeland, Michigan. I used my macro lens to get a detailed view.

I spotted this Great Egret in a nearby pond this afternoon. I was happy to capture the moment it took flight from the water as well as when it flew overhead. It’s amazing how light and perspective can change the look and feel of a photograph. These photos were taken seconds apart :)
