Re: Stink Bug.

Are these also known as Shield Bugs ? I have photos of a green one that I'll post sometime.

For some reason I'm having trouble getting into this site. Everytime I type in www.photomacrography or variation there of in the search box, it directs me to Johan J Ingles-Le Nobel site "Extreme Macro". Great site and I love his articles, but not what I'm looking for when I want to get to this foru...

Stink Bug.

Came across this guy ( or girl ) while hunting for jumping spiders. After some online research, I've come to the conclusion that it's a Brown Marmorated Stink Bug, which is invasive here in California as well as other states throughout the U.S. It is especially 2021-01-24-17-35-19-(B,Radius8,Smoothi...

Re: Tiny junkman

Nice photos Mark. Reminds me of the Caddis Fly larva I use to use when trout fishing. They would encrust themselves with sand and bits of pine needle. Inside was the little grub that trout loved.

Re: Black Widow

Charming creatures aren't they! I understand their venon is 15 times stronger than a rattle snake. Luckily they don't inject that much when they bite. Very few humans die from them.

Black Widow

Just when I thought photographing insects was over for the season, I discovered this little beauty hiding in the corner of my backyard fence. At first I considered killing here for photographic purpose's, then decided to build a small habitat out of a 3x3 inch plastic cube. This way I'm able photogr...

Re: My daughter's hair

Beautiful shot Robert. I especially like the small beam of light coming from above on the left side. Was that intentional or just the way it worked out. I've tried getting similar results by drilling a small hole in a ping pong ball attached to my Jansco light, but without much success. Again, beaut...

Re: Rare Two Headed California Root Beetle

This poor creature had already passed to the great beyond, so I'm not sure what sound it would make. I know that a June Bug makes a curious sound when handled. A kind of squeaking noise I believe made with their antennae.

Rare Two Headed California Root Beetle

O.K, no such thing, but at least I got you to look. The two headed beetle is what happens when you forget to delete photos from your last stack in Helicon Focus. ( Double Exposer ) This is a California Root Beetle my son discovered in his swimming pool, which by the way, is an excellent place to fin...
