Persistent Pupillary Membrane

I really thought I had already shared this photo here, but when I went looking for it, I couldn’t find it!  So I’m sharing it now. 😛

It was by photographing my own eyes that I discovered the persistent pupillary membrane in my left eye.  I don’t recall my eye doctor ever saying anything about it, though he probably mentioned it to my mom when I was little.  And if it’s not an issue, why bring it up again, right?  But it worried me when I saw it while looking through the photos I’d taken.  So… like most anyone would do, I did a Google search for “string across pupil” –or something like that. 😛

After reading some about it, I decided, like I said earlier, that it wasn’t an issue.  I still haven’t mentioned it to my eye doctor, though I may bring it up sometime just to see what he has to say about it.

Anyway, after noticing this membrane, I started trying to get a better photo of it.  While this isn’t an amazing photo or anything, it’s still pretty detailed and you can see the membrane quite clearly– and that’s why I like it. 😉


Ambush Bug

I suppose this bug doesn’t look that small, but the flower it’s on is a little one and this bug is really quite tiny.  These pictures aren’t all that great, but as I was on my out to leave for work, I just happened to notice these flowers starting to bloom and as I squatted down to look at them… I noticed what looked like small seeds or something.  Then one of them started crawling and I realized that they were bugs!  So I whipped my ever-present camera out of my purse and snapped a few quick shots before I had to leave.

After some searching and some help from a fellow Okie photographer over on Flickr… I figured out that this is called an Ambush Bug. 😉
