All pics from my Nexus LG5 cellphone, before I got my Pentax camera.

Pics include:

– Lake Lynn during Hurricane Matthew October 2016. Amazing storm. I walked around with an umbrella while Lake Lynn was rapidly filling up and soon to overflow.

– Falls Lake October 2016. That weird little spiny yellow spider – AKA spiny orb weaver – was what really got me wanting to do macro shots. I kept walking into their webs during a hike at Falls Lake and couldn’t believe how weird this spider was & how I had never seen one before. (Turns out they are everywhere at certain parts of the year.)

– Praying mantis in my parking lot at Cumberland Cove. Such a neat creature.
