Today at Foster Gardens in Honolulu.. I have never macro'd a bug but this preying mantas was fun... ok well interesting at least. But when you view it in Photoshop it feels like they are crawling on you... Kind of icky!! :) :) It was a rainy overcast day and not a lot of flowers.. so I thought I would post something totally different. :) :)

Makapu'u Lighthouse, Oahu
The lighthouse was built in 1909 and automated in 1974. A 2-mile paved trail leads to the lighthouse and a fantastic view of the entire coastline and the island of Molokai in the distance.
The Kaiwi Channel (26 miles Molokai to Oahu) runs past Makapu'u Lighthouse and is an excellent spot to watch Humpback whales as they travel the channel between December and April. (info from and other sites) Have to admit I just couldn't come up with all of these facts!! :) :) It is a wonderful, fun, easy hike and the views are awesome.

This is another morning in California. Rainbow Bridge, Folsom, CA. shot with my favorite fishy eye lens :) :) That lens is tons of fun to play with. :) :) The Rainbow Bridge was built in 1919 across the American River.
Since there really are no fall colors here in Hawaii I went out looking for some in California on my recent visit. This was about all I could find. :)
