A focus stacked macro photo of a Milkweed Bug, probably Oncopeltus fasciatu:
Collected several weeks ago when the milkweed seedpods were getting ready to open. Shot at about 4x lifesized, Pentax K01 with reverse mounted SMC K 24mm f3.5 on extension. 130 exposures in 2 stacks, combined in Zerene Stacker.
A couple shots of the South Haven, Michigan, lighthouse. The light in on the eastern shore of Lake Michigan. Today storm brought driving rains and wind gusts of up to 60 mph. The 40th anniversary of of the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald was just two days ago - today's storm was tame compared to the one the Fitzgerald endured but still is a reminder of how turbulent the lakes can be.
