Weekly Photo Challenge: Close

The word “close” – as in being near to something or someone, brings to mind a variety of situations including feelings and proximity.

  • We have a very “closerelationship with our pets in this family.
  • For me, gorgeous scenery is “close“.
  • In weddings, the couples are “close“.
  • In many families, the relatives are “close“.
  • Wasps are a “close” encounter of the scary kind.
  • I’ve had a “closefriend for 30+ years.
  • Some days I am “close” to screaming at WordPress as I battle my photos into position. LOL.

And photographically, I get “close” to many of my subjects…

This muskrat swam right out in front of me as I was trying to shoot Red-Winged Blackbirds. (Got a far better shot of the muskrat!)

Mule Deer leapt out of the undergrowth as I was walking the path. Not sure who was more startled.

I’m a lot braver with bees than wasps!

Damselfly up close and personal. I liked his choice of matching surroundings.

    Love the last shot!

    • Thanks Livvy – I was seeing a whole bunch of photographers do insect shots at the time and decided to try my hand – they’re speedy little things – and don’t hang around long LOL. It took a long time to get that one!
