Exploring Nature Close-up

Photography and observations revealing the close-up detailed beauty of insects, local wildlife and native plants. Our goal is to inspire you to Focus on Natives to attract wildlife to your yard.


You'll recognize many of our nature subjects. But others will look exotic even though they live in our yards. Because of the wonders of macro photography, objects in our images may appear larger than they actually are. See recent social media posts here.


We share observations and images of native plants, wildlife, and insects from our ongoing learning and discoveries on our Focus on Natives path.
