Mid-Summer Photos

Well, yesterday was yesterday, and last month was last month (and plenty of photos to share, there).  Within the house, conditions aren’t normal… but outside—

[holey plant]…I spoke to soon.  The insects really decimated this plant!

Ignore the rust on the door…
Not sure if this red bug is one of the culprits.  It kept trying to hide itself from me by turning to the backside of the leaf.  But I got two good photos of it on top.  There were green bugs, and plenty of flies…

[water droplets on leaf]A few thunderstorms rolled by recently, and some more rain this morning.  The resolution on the camera is good enough to capture the little “hairs” on the leaves.

[long-legs spider]The “daddy long-legs” spiders really know how to get their way around.  This one walked all over the plant.

[moth]The moths get really fat during the Summer.  This is actually one of the smaller ones.

rye-maybeSome…rye-like…plant.  Maybe it’s one of the ordinaries in a less observed stage.  I’m probably wrong.  The image is a still from a video, if I recall correctly, as I couldn’t get proper focus non-video-wise.

[exit sign]Well, that’s as far as the mid-Summer photos go, but we’re far from done.  I snapped a load of pics in late-June on a trip to the library, and another few with a theme.  Some brilliant flowers…

As far as color correction goes with the camera, a color rotation of +2R/-1G/+4B seems to be the winning combination, with a brightness/contrast adjustment of -8% to deal with overflow, and a gamma adjustment around 1.7/1.8.  These values or whereabouts were used for most of the high def. images in this post.  It’s just faster knowing what’s right, so I can stop OCD-tinkering in processing…

Right outside the Wishcamper Center building…
That in no way looks artificial.
