Macro Lens Test

Oppenheimer was very patient to sit while I stuck my lens in his face. Right in his face.

Yes, this is one of those dreaded Box Elder Beetles. I, like everyone in Peterborough, am surrounded by them. And when the house is warm in winter a few of them wake up and come out to see what’s up.

You’re getting your picture taken, friend. That’s what’s up.
