I love shooting photos of Mother Nature, particularly the "small" world. Macros are a fascinating way to view the world and to get an idea of the diversity of life that surrounds us. My passion for photography came from another hobby, hybridizing hostas. As my hybrids developed and I photographed them, something seemed to be I began to enhance my skills as a photographer, by asking questions and studying the photos of others. It surprises me, how one hobby can lead to another.
