Strange Photographer Selfies

Macro photography has fascinated me of late, though I don’t have the best equipment for pursuing it.  While looking through recent photos on my computer, I zoomed in on the “bug traffic jam” in this first picture and realized that my reflection was showing up on the beetle’s shiny black shell.  Can you see me?

The fast-moving beetle was cut off in traffic by the longer, slower millipede. Don’t you just hate when that happens? Lol

I saw my reflection in a photo of our resident bunny, too.  It wasn’t very clear, so I grabbed my camera and purposefully captured a rabbit-eye-selfie.

It took me a while to figure out that the fuzzy gray dots all over this photo were caused by a swarm of gnats that flew between me and my nervous subject.

Here’s another from a different day.

You’ll never guess what momma bunny was doing when I took this photo. She was watching dozens of kids across the street having an Easter egg hunt! The dark, curving lines are reflections the of wild green onions that quickly grow tall in our yard between mowings.

Can’t leave out a chicken-eye-selfie!

Yes, that’s a reflection of me in front of a window — we had the chicken inside our house to do some health maintenance (I’ll spare you the gross details Lol).

~~~UPDATES~~~

This “selfie” was taken on purpose.  I wasn’t going to share it, but I was inspired to add it anyway after seeing a post by Rita Hueston on her blog Tidbits and Tales.
