Another Single Shot Photography post today, this time a bit different than my usual topics..
I was walking around a park just outside of Revelstoke when I noticed something very strange in the leaves of a couple of trees. I had never seen something like this inside a leaf and it was a good opportunity to test how my new camera would handle a macro shot. I could actually see the larva eat its way while crawling through the surface of the leaf. It was quite fascinating to witness. Apparently they are called leaf miners, it is an insect (fly-like) that lays an egg inside of a leaf and the larva grows while eating its way out and flies off when they are full grown. Crazy how nature works!
Hope you like the shot!
