    two more lol, I can't believe I forgot about these two pictures 0.0

    Powder, displaying her rare "White phase", she's only done it about 3 times in her entire life and I have only been able to photograph it once or twice. When she does this, her head and most of her body turns almost white! the white on her sides creeps up and reaches almost all the way around her body it seems. Completely amazing, and breath taking! Too bad she doesn't do it often :(

    Thanks! She made me love Normal looking Boas more than the morphs to be honest lol. Happy that she is DH Snow too though xD which I think plays a part in her coloration ect.. but that's just one of my wild theories *thumbs up*

    He must love that Boa, I know I do and I've mostly only seen pictures of them. But yes I definitely plan on breeding her, in fact with the new Lipstick Hypo Het Albino (Possible Super Hypo) Male I purchased recently. His little bump shouldn't be an issue in terms of breeding, as it is slightly before the vent and is not affecting the hemipenes so that's good. As soon as they are big enough, It's happening :D

    I was holding her one day when she was just a baby, she took a strike at me, startled me and I almost dropped her. He was relieved I didn't, she was a big investment in his business.

    she tried to give you frost bite obviously. LOL

    But in all seriousness, they are bloody expensive! dropping in price but still really pricey. and the fact that it is female is even more dollars signs haha, that's why I went with the het... cuz I don't have any pools of cash sitting around or anything xD

    PS - I should mention though, that my first stop in breeding is: SUNGLOWS! Then, from there, I move on to Snows, and ultimately MOONGLOWS!!! Thats why I got the Lipstick Hypo het Albino poss super, if i wanted straight Snows I would have just got another het :D This way opens me to more breeding options though, wayyyyyyyyy more.

    Hannibal, my bearded dragon just finished shedding her head so I thought that I would post a couple of photos,
    one is of the ear, you can see the fine paper like membrane (too cool) and the other one is of the nostril scale with a little squiggly part that was inside the nostril.

    I wish I had a macro lens for one reason in particular right now, and that is to capture Raptor's gorgeous eyes. :)

    Thanks, Michele. The fly is actually a Tachinid of some sort...not sure of the exact species.

    I love all of the photos! Vers, do you have one of a dobsonfly?

    Here are a couple of mine...
    my cat and I built a "cat-gloo" this past winter (he even helped to dig out a little snow!) and here's a pic of him getting out.

    Unfortunately I dont....it seems every time I run across one (not all that often) it's at times when I don't have my macro rig with me. I do, however, have a few shots of a less impressive dobsonfly relative, the fishfly...

    Matt your shots continue to amaze me! Are you freehanding it or do you use a tripod of some sort?

    Thank you, Merlin. Technically all my shots are handheld, but I do implement a lot of field technique which often utilizes my surroundings as a means to stabilize the camera. For instance I frequently use a kneepod, leftarmpod, shoepod, rockpod, treepod, groundpod etc etc. For most of the subjects I shoot mobility and flexibility are key elements...a tripod or conventional monopod are just way too cumbersome. By the way, because depth of field is extremely shallow at such magnifications a couple of the above shots are actually composites of multiple images taken at different points of focus, which is called 'focus stacking'. When combined (or stacked) they create a single image with significantly more depth of field. For instance...
