Drying in the Sun and More Macro

Frames drying in the sun on Sunday afternoon... My darlin' daughter was hard at work, creating a walking stick for a friends birthday present. - it turned out very nice. The frames have a faux metal anodized aluminum or steel look to the field areas. i have been doing this style of framing since 2000. it works well in a gallery situation, harmonizing the pieces on the wall even if the subject matter is diverse.
While finishes were drying, I busted out the macro lens and shot a bagworm making for the shelter of the house siding. The praying mantis was on my Ghanaian talking drum in the studio. No idea how he got there, but this was when i took it out of doors to let him go. He was very interested in the camera lens, swiping at it with his meat-hooks.
