Happy Tuesday! I drove up to Portland yesterday evening to pick up Pallo, who did not appear to have missed me terribly. The dogs did get a dried duck foot each, though, as an awesome-dog reward for be my awesome dogs.
Then today, I was walking around town and went into a thrift store. And what did I find but a set of 52mm macro filters. The macro filters I have right now are 55mm, so I have to use a 52-55 step-up ring to use them with my 50mm prime. With the 52mm filters, I won't have to use the extra ring, and I will be able to fit the same lens cap on with or without the filter.
However, the extra set of macro filters resulted in me stacking the three 52mm filters, threading on the step-up ring, then stacking on the three 55mm macro filters. Then I took super-close-up pictures. And because it is Tasty Tuesday, I took pictures of Pallo's tongue and teeth. Because then it is almost like I planned this. (Plus, dog teeth is apparently one of the number one search terms that leads people to my blog. Go figure.)
I also took a few pictures out in my garden (which is pretty sad and pathetic so far this year, other than some sprouting pumpkins from the compost and the very enthusiastic marionberry climbing the fence). This little lady bug was on the marionberry leaves.
Then, I went to try for a picture of this great dandelion puff. But Martha saw me going for it and ate half of it before I could grab it from her. So I was left with only about three seeds total still on the stem of which to take a picture.
