A new season in upon us
As the leaves emerge
Time to look for slight moment
Of spots on leaves and twigs
To slowly approach
Before they hop or fly away
If I could only get them to turn my way
Maybe I get some head shots
And not get bite or strung

Thanks, I get so excited when I come upon all the wonders, just outside door and I’m glad you enjoy it too.
Nice photography but it all creeps me out, I don’t like bugs though I’m sure they have there purpose. 😦
Thanks, you have to thinks of them as our fellow traveler’s as the earth and our lives spin everyday
I try to and enjoy some bugs, maybe.
“A slight moment of spots…before they hop or fly away” is exactly right. Nicely said. As for head shots, if you got any closer, you’d be bug food for sure. Amazing photos.
Thanks, with tired eyes I move closer hoping to capture those spots so I can get a better look later, and truth be told I get more butt rather than head shots as a rule
I would say both ends are amazing!
Great detail. Think I better check and see if anything is crawling on me (lol!).
Thanks, I find things that land on me are the hardest ones to take a picture of., but I still try
You got one nice camera, my friend.
I’m glad with the camera I have now a Panasonic Lumix GX 9, not that expensive, but I do enjoy it, and some of those photos were done with older point and shoot cameras.
The thing about them is they tend to be short lived with dirty hands for the dirt always finds a way to their insides. Thanks
Thank you for the comment, glad you enjoyed
Amazing photographs of insects!
Thank you it is fun when I come across all those living things that seem to share my yardwith me
Great shots. The tiny black flies have been like a cloud out there. Bug spray must be at the ready.
Oh Judy, hold on the bug spray for those little black flies are Bark Lice and they are so fascinating they don’t do any harm to trees for they are feeding on algae and lichens growing on the bark and what is so cool are you try to get close to them they all move away like a herd of cattle. I get so excited when I see them.
So no spray if you see them, them, call me instead I will be right there,Thanks
It’s always a learning experience with you, Jon. I was able to look up Bark Lice and learn about them. I’ll be on the lookout because most of our trees has plenty of lichens for them to stop and enjoy. Thank you!
