Took a voyage into my backyard today just armed with my Tamron 90mm macro and an external flash. Here's what I found:








I have two of these in my freezer and cannot wait to stack those feathered antennae.

Good images, I would work more in the concept of the first one, the diagonal formed by the leaf and the drop could make an interesting image.

Usually images from insects from behind are not the prefered by the public but you could work on the concept to make them more interesting or change to profile or frontal aproaches. Idea

Same here (in Maine, USA)...nevertheless, I am desperate for an early spring.

Does anyone know of any especially effective rituals (of ANY variety!) that might cause an early and warm spring??!! (grins)

I think ritual migration to Florida can work pretty well Smile

I was going to say the same thing about Southern California, Brian. 80 degrees today. I've already seen butterflies, wasps, bees, midges, ladybugs, mosquitos, and more.

Gustavo, I agree about the angles. Many of these insects were moving fervently and unfortunately didn't pose very well.

I *really* enjoyed all my business trips to Southern California - mostly to Newport Beach and the San Diego area. The conferences I mostly attended were held in February, and were always a miraculous escape from winter. Getting off the plane and soon hearing song birds, seeing flowering plants, etc, was so delightful!

Now if I could only figure out a way to move there, now that I'm retired! Last time I checked, housing, etc near beach areas, etc, was exceptionally expensive!

With my luck, I figure that shortly after I moved there, the megaearthquakes would begin...
