One thing this Project 365 of mine has taught me is to look beyond the obvious and see the potential in subjects that, in the past, I would have promptly dismissed. 

For example, spring cankerworms have certainly done their fair share of damage this season, which is a source of aggravation for any gardener. However, as an ‘enlightened photographer’ ;-), I am now able to view them from a completely different perspective. 

"Inch By Inch" (Spring Cankerworm aka Inchworm) Nikon D300, 105mm, F/8, 1/250s, -0.3EV, ISO 400, Built-in Rear Curtain Flash, -2.0EV, Silver Efex Pro 'Split Toning' Filter

Plus, with my project finish only one day away, they are also very timely! 😀

“Courtship of Sparrows” (House Sparrows) Nikon D300, 600mm, F/5, 1/200s, -0.3EV, ISO 640, Silver Efex Pro Toning

With the arrival of warming temperatures and sunnier days, so begins the courtship of the birds…

"En Pointe" (Common Snowdrop Bud, Galanthus nivalus) Nikon D300, 105mm F/2.8G Macro, F/5.6, 1/200s, -0.3EV, ISO 250, Silver Efex Pro B/W Filter

I never noticed before today how the nodding white buds of Common Snowdrops look like tiny pointe ballet shoes, dancing in patches across the barren landscape. 

Oh, what a hopeful sign that spring will come! 🙂 

Another spectactularshow at high tide today.

“The Beach is Closed” (High Tide Waves Crashing Over Sea Wall, Lynch Park) Nikon D300, 18mm, F/14, 1/250s, +0.7EV, ISO 500, Silver Efex Pro ‘Dark Sepia’ Filter, Selective Toning

I was so hoping to have this image in raging color but a blah, overcast sky refused to cooperate!

C’est la vie. 🙂
