Today’s theme is – you guessed it – bugs!
I find that bug shots are almost as interesting as flowers and nearly as hard to get as birds, especially if it’s an unusual creature. You have to get so close to get a good shot, and they keep moving. How rude!
Still, occasionally I still manage to catch one unaware, especially if I can stand back.
Found out this is a house centipede. After seeing one grab a moth out of the air, I leave them alone. They eat earwigs!
Got this one last summer on one of my spider plants.
One of my favorite shots, with the bokeh effect and all.
I’m not sure, but I think the red ones are larval forms of the adult box elders. They seemed to be nurturing them.
A zebra jumping spider, he led me all around the wall, trying to keep him in focus.
