Spring must be approaching – I finally found some bugs venturing out of wherever they hide during the cold winter this afternoon.
I found several rollie pollies hiding beneath a pot in the garden and decided to get down on their level.
A close look at salt and pepper, in black-and-white.
One small flower for man, one giant feast for a sweat bee.
After a busy week, I decided this would be good time to share two photos of sweat bees from earlier this year.
Remember the post a few weeks ago about the big, shy jumping spider? I found what could be her offspring hunting in the garden.
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.
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.
Ever since becoming interested in photography, I was never a big fan of the camera flash. Now I am hooked.
