Default Georgepat's 52 Weeks Part 1 Macros

Hello to all my Camel Friends...

Sorry for the large delay in contacting or commenting but I have been having major health issues. I just returned from 15 days in ICU at out local hospital for my most severe COPD flare to date. Very scary to say the least. I'm feeling much better but still as weak as a kitten, in addition to my camera I now have to tote a bottle of O2 so please bear with me for a while.
My plan is to attempt to do the 52 doing Macros of everyday objects in both color and B&W images. I will start out later today with some shots of one of my favorite critters (not spiders just yet). This will be a sort of rehab for me until I get my strength back.
I notice that there are a few others doing the Macro thing as well. I promise not to step on any toes if I can help it.
Anyway, I'm glad to return to the Camel even if it will be slow going for a while. I've missed you guys and the Camel very much...so see y'all very soon with my first shots today.
Georgepat

Those of y'all that know me know that the common Stink Bug is not my favorite subject and certainly not what I wished to shoot first. However, when one of these bugs lands on your printer and you have nothing else...well, ya takes what ya can get!

#1...Stink Bug Top

#2...Stink Bug Bottom

Thanks, Wolf and Taigen. Believe me it's great to be back. Slow going but much better than the alternative! LOL

Thanks ever so much for the update Rust.
Like others here, I have been trying to get hold of George for some time and without success.
I will try to connect with Robbilynn via Facebook and share my prayers with her.
