But I could not resist taking their photograph, even though I had said I would refrain from a lot of insect photos this season. Laughing

Delightful, especially #1 ! Very Happy

Why on earth would you "refrain" from taking pictures like these?

Have to admit, insects are quite interesting but I am hoping that I can come across somethings, other than insects, during the warmer months this year, that are a bit different or unusual maybe.

Thanks Rik Very Happy

Quite interesting???? The sun rises and sets on insects and other arthropods. Oh, and flowers too. Smile

The backgrounds work very well with the lighting.

I was quite surprised to find these things so early in the season. A lot of insects and flowers to, I have noticed, are popping up quite early in the season. Must be the warmer weather arriving sooner than usual. Think

Thanks Doug and Jim Very Happy
