Beetle’s Delight

A wild ginger (Asarum canadense) bloom rests on the ground. Pollenated by insects that crawl on the ground, this scene would be a welcome sight for a ground beetle.

I took this with a macro lens, Micro-Nikkor 60mm AF. The flower grows so low that it is difficult to get one’s body in position to frame it level with the bloom. I sat the camera on the ground, pointed in the general direction, and fired shots until I got what I liked. Such is the beauty of auto-focus and digital recording media. The camera was a Nikon D90. The ISO is 3200, which is high, but the grain is not too noticeable at this resolution.
