Backyard Macros

On April 22nd, 2017, I took some macro photos in my backyard of flowers, dandelions, and other things. With the San Francisco Bay Area mega storms the past few months, the wild flowers has been blooming like crazy. My backyard is no different. Here are the photos I took that day. The photos are shot using my Canon EOS 5D Mark III with my Kenko Extension Tubes and Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Lens. I will be splitting the photos into 2 parts.

The vlog for May 2017 was split into 2 parts. This is part 2. In part 1, I have the video footage of my pet bunny, my new dress, and my new camping gear. You can find that by using the "Previous Vlog" link below.

In this vlog, I take you on my travels during the month of May. During the month, I visited Fall Creek Unit of Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park in California and Pigeon Point Lighthouse along Highway 1 in Pescadero, CA. On my Fall Creek Unit trip, I show you the famous banana slugs of the west coast and the endangered Coast Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) forests. On my Pigeon Point Lighthouse trip, I show the wonderful wildflowers from the California super bloom along with some scenery of the Pacific Ocean.

Fall Creek Unit & Pigeon Point Lighthouse (Cellphone Photos)

On May 25th, 2017 and June 2nd, 2017, I took two hikes through Fall Creek Unit of Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park in the Santa Cruz mountains in California. On May 29th, 2017, I took a trip to Pigeon Point Lighthouse in Pescadero, CA. I mainly shot DSLR photos on my trips, but I also shot some cellphone photos and videos too which is what I'm showing you in this blog post. The DSLR photos can be viewed here: Fall Creek Unit (Part 1), Fall Creek Unit (Part 2), Pigeon Point Lighthouse. As for my travel vlogs, you can find my May ones here. My June travel vlog will come out in July.

Normally I post cellphone photos the same day I take them, but some things came up. There was a delay in my photo processing and my photo posting lately due an injury I sustained on my last Fall Creek Unit trip. During that hike, I got stun 3 times by a wasp which left me in a lot of pain. I would like to take this moment to stress the importance of carrying first aid on wilderness trips. Luckily, I always pack first aid in my camera bag. Without that, I probably wouldn't have hiked out that day. I was able to pull out the stinger and do some general first aid with my kit. Wasp stings are mildly venomous, but not dangerous unless you are the unlucky 10% of the population that happens to be allergic to it. I was lucky I wasn't allergic, but it did leave me in a lot of pain. Luckily I was able to recover enough for the slow and extremely painful 2 miles hike out that day. I'll be honest, while sitting there, hoping the pain would go away enough for me to get back to my car, I was already making mental plans on building a small campfire for the night (I also pack fire starters in my bag on wilderness trips). I did make it back that night, but I was in too much pain to do anything for a couple days after. I also think maybe it compromised my immune system to a certain extent (I also got like 20 mosquito bites that day). I fell extremely ill a couple days ago from some sort of stomach bug, and I think at the moment I also got some sort of infection in my mouth (wonder if it is the same virus). I'm slowly recovering, but after having my immune system constantly being bombarded the last few weeks, I think it is having some trouble keeping up. I probably do have to hold off on my photo work for a while. Hope you can understand! Surprisingly, I've been taking this recent chain of bad luck pretty well. My spirits still have be relatively good.

A selfie of me (Sunny). This was before I got stun by the wasp. That was why I was still smiling. Trust me, I was not smiling after I got stun.

Coast Redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens) forest and a creek bed. This was where I got stun by the wasp. I was pretty lucky. If I didn't recover enough for the hike out that day, the creek bed would have been a prime candidate for a small campfire for the night and the creek would have provided a water source for me to filter drinking water from. There wasn't anything nearby that could potentially catch fire, there was a sandy area where I could have napped if I needed to, and a water source I can filter and drink from. Luckily, I did recover enough for the hike out that day and I didn't have to bother with any of that.

Creek and Coast Redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens) forest. Photo shot in the same spot as above. I shot these photos as I was waiting for the pain to subside. While I was in an ton of pain, photography still takes #1 priority. HAHA Also I spent like 45 minutes just relaxing there before the pain subsided just enough that I was willing to attempt my 2 mile hike back to the parking lot.
