Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge

A stormy sky, and a photo challenge.

The temperature was predicted to be 39 C today, and I know it reached 38 in the shade at the side of our house.  The change came through late  – a bit of thunder and lightning.  I took a photo when we arrived at work to-night to clean the office and the amenities at the [boat] trailer manufacturing complex. That stormy cloud wouldn’t oblige me with a streak of lightning, not at the same time as I pushed the button, but it did drop a few miserable millimetres millilitres of rain in our gauge at home. The dog was wet and puddles were full, but where we were there was but a mere sprinkle – not even enough to wet the ground! It is an oddity, but we often get different weather patterns at our end of town to the other!

I took the photos below for this new-to-me photo challenge, run by Sally at Lens and Pens by Sally.  As usual, I’m using the Nokia Lumia 530, 5MP windows phone camera, on auto, and uncropped unless stated.

The theme for the second Monday of the month: Macro.

The photo of the bee was taken yesterday. I love the way the mint flowers show through its wings.  These other photos were taken on this morning’s walk – a small feather, some spider webbing on a pine tree, and looking inside a pink belladonna lily.  If you click on the photos you will go to a larger version. They can be clicked on a second time, too.













The proper change is here now, the temperature is falling rapidly. Almost 9pm,  the sun is down, it is 22 C and supposed to go down to 15 overnight. Might not need the doona again tonight.

Hmmm, just wondering – I suppose I should have had the camera on the macro setting.  😮
