Alicia's Photo Challenge #2


For a closer view, click on the picture.

This week on Alicia's photo challenge, we were to get close up!!! Close up and get all the little details and none of the extra "stuff". So I spent the week getting close up to most everything. The kids thought this was great fun. "Miss Sarah....I found a spider for you." My kiddos love their bugs - so here are a few close up shots from this week. My very favorite was this one..Fox holding the Grass Spider he caught in a jar(we did let him go). I know...lots of you will go...Eeeeewwwwww. My son is a budding entomologist and all our preschoolers love them too so...it's my fault, I'm a science geek. Do you see the lovey heart on this spider, perfectly shaped. Look at those legs - wowza sooo long!!!

Here is a close up of Lucy Lu's sweet eye....I liked this one too.


One last one I loved..Fox's darling eye, so blue.....

I have never tried close up of eyes like that! Love the one of the dog.
Great pictures!

Alicia said...

Great shots Sarah! The spider one is a little creepy... I think mostly because those legs are soooo long!I love how you caught his smile in the background! Eyes are fun to photograph! Thanks for participating!

Sarah these are fantastic.

You are awesome at taking pictures. I love Fox's eye and the spider one should be entered in some kind of contest.

Love to you my dear dear Sarah.

I love the eyes! Fox's are just beautiful, remind me of Ron's, he has light blue with the dark ring like Fox's. Good shots! Spider not happy to see. LOL
