When shooting handheld macro photos, especially of live animals, I’m either sort of lucky or very lucky to get a correctly focused image on the first try, so I usually take several shots to hopefully get one in focus. That means I occasionally end up with two or more similar images. This week, I used similar spider images to make some simple GIFs.
An ambush bug waited patiently among stonecrop flowers to finally catch a honey bee meal.
I have just two pictures to share this week – a green praying mantis hanging out on our cucumber plants.
It seems slightly strange that a caterpillar is a rare sight when there are so many other critters in the backyard, but this green caterpillar was the first large caterpillar I’ve seen in the past several years.
