Enjoy this close look at a grasshopper.
This female jumping spider’s abdomen was swollen because she was getting close to laying eggs. She unsuccessfully tried hiding behind some gravel rocks as I took pictures.
While pulling some spotted spurge from the yard, I noticed red mites scurrying around the plants. Upon closer examination, the mites were visiting tiny flowers on the weeds.
If you missed last week’s post, that’s because I was busy taking pictures during a family trip to the Oregon coast. If you missed this post, that’s because it’s for the birds – seagulls, pelicans, whimbrels, and western sandpipers, to be exact!
Some flowers macros for Mother’s Day!
Occasionally when I am outside looking for bugs to photograph, I will notice tiny yellow specks moving around on the ground. Last week, I found several concentrated around some pollen that had fallen from an iris flower, so I took the opportunity to get a closer look at these creatures with some macro photographs.
Along with some fish, I caught a few good photos of wildlife and scenery from Malheur Reservoir this week.
This week I’m sharing some photos from a walk around my hometown, Nyssa, which is primarily an agricultural town. I enjoyed the change from my usual macro subjects, and I hope you do as well.

If you don’t like spiders, perhaps only jumping spiders could convince you otherwise. With their big eyes, spiked hair, and occasional crazy colors, they just might be the stars of the invertebrate world.
