Looking Closely: My Garden

Linde Eyster 


In her local garden the size of a small classroom, retired biology teacher Linde Eyster photographically documented the diversity of arthropods that she found over a ten-year period. Because the insects, spiders, and centipedes rarely sat still, she had to hand hold the camera [no tripod] and patiently follow the animals as they moved around. All of her photographs were taken with a macro (close-up) lens, in natural light (no flash), and all the arthropods were photographed unrestrained and unharmed on whatever vegetation or surface they were on.
