Macro Friday! Lizard Lips!



So, the other day, I was shooting, and I went to our next door neighbor's house, as I had promised their little boy I'd take some Macro shots of his frogs........

Well, it just so happened, his cousin pulled up as I was walking over, with this not-so little guy in tow....

Gotta love Lizard Lips in Macro........

:)
He is seriously, one of the neatest looking reptiles I've ever seen(in person). While I may be afraid of bugs, reptiles and I are cool..... yeah, we go way back! At least they are usually large enough where they don't sneak up on me!







So, hop on over to Blogging From Bolivia, and check out Laura's macro shot, and everybody else's this week! Hey, while you're at it, post your own creative macro or close up shot, and link right up! Personally, I hold Laura solely responsible for my new obsession with Macro photography! ;) (Hey, at least it give me something to shoot when my kids run from the camera, even if my neighbors think I'm nuts now!)

All are awesome photos. But, I think if it is okay with you, I'll refrain from clicking for close-ups! Lizards really creep me out. ♥
