As cold as ice...

We sometimes forget that winter is beautiful. While we are shoveling snow or scraping ice off our cars we tend to focus on the negative (guilty!) and ignore the beauty around us.

So while you are outside this winter, take a moment to look around. You may be surprised by what you find.

Thinking of Spring

Welcome to the first blog post from George Lama Photography! This will be a shared effort between myself (Renee Lama) and George. We have been wanting to start a blog for a while and what better way to begin a new year!

Thinking of Spring:
I am not a snow person. I am actually counting the days until Spring begins (58 days!). 
So, in light of my desire for Spring to begin, I decided that our first post would revisit some of the beautiful insect shots George has taken during the Spring/Summer season.

George would go out "hunting" for hours and come back in and say, "Let me show you this." I would say, "No!" and run. I really did not want to know what was lurking in our backyard. (This is the same man who can see a tiny spider on a leaf 3 feet away, but cannot see crumbs on the counter right in front of him.)

George calls this one "David and Goliath." That is a young goldenrod spider carrying that ant.

An Argiope (spider). The biggest spider I have ever seen and hopefully will ever see. 
George would not let me kill it. :0)

So think Spring while you are shoveling snow. Maybe that will make it come faster.
