BOOM!!!!

A huge lighting bolt strikes the antennae of the Willis Tower on a stormy afternoon in Chicago. I had just left an art presentation Athena Restaurant Chicago Greektown for Choose Chicago when I noticed some decent cloud structure forming overhead. I already had my camera with me so I headed out to Northerly Island to check out the storm rolling in. As you can see, mother nature put on quite the show!!!

Stormy Buckingham...

The sky was just amazing down here in the city this afternoon. I was right around the corner from the fountain when I saw these epic clouds rolling in so I decided to stop and shoot for a bit. Definitely happy I did because the clouds made for some amazing drama in the sky over Buckingham Fountain.

Wolf Spider...

(Hogna Aspersa)

Wolf Spiders hunt at night, spending their days burrowing under rocks and logs. These spiders can grow quite large in size (15mm-25mm), which is why they are feared by many people. They are known to bite humans, especially if handled, but their venom is not very harmful to humans. I bit of pain and swelling is the most that can happen if you are bitten by one of these guys. While males die after mating in the fall, females overwinter and then lay their eggs in the spring. The spiderlings will then climb on the backs of the females and spend the summer growing in size. They will then overwinter with the female until the following spring, at which point they will be fully mature.

Nursery Spider...

Nursery Spiders derive their names from the way they handle their eggs. The female carries the egg sac with her fangs to a suitable location and then builds a web to suspend it from a leaf or high shrub. Once the web has been spun and the sac is protected, the female will then stand guard until all of the eggs hatch.

Small House Fly's Mating...

I got my hands on Canon's super macro lens the MP-E 65 for the next 10 days and Im definitely pretty excited about it! I have been wanting to get into macro photography for a while now but just havent taken the time to do so. Today was my first day out testing this lens and with the chilly weather I honestly didnt expect to find any insects. When I stumbled upon these two mating, I was definitely pretty stoked and Im really happy with the end result of this shot!

Tulip Stamens and Pistil...

A 1.5:1 Macro photograph of the reproductive organs of a blooming Tulip. Stamens and pistils are the male and female reproductive organs in flowering plants and are necessary for sexual reproduction. The male organs are purple and are called stamens. They grow in a ring circling the pistil, which is the female reproductive organ and is yellow in this flower.

Spring in the City...

Today was absolutely beautiful outside and I had to stop and shoot for a bit on my way home. I was surprised when I found these flowers and just as the sun was starting to set these clouds flew in and added a bit of drama to the sky. I truly hope that spring is here to stay, as Im really looking forward to shooting more flowers in the coming weeks!!
