Insects, Bugs, Arachnids and Various Flying Things… (aka- I’m not scared of creepy-crawlies)
So many other bloggers inspire me…. I LOVE looking at other peoples pictures, wondering how they got that light, or that angle, what lens they used, and then sometimes trying something new myself. In this case, I went back through my archives to find some of my favourite bug pictures, inspired by fellow photog blogger Mike Powell – especially by his amazing pictures of the scary creepy creature on his lavendar plant. Mine are not NEARLY as technically perfect- some of them were just spontaneous- “quick get that picture”, others were planned….and in the interest of time, I pulled a few from my personal facebook albums- which are in low resolution. (who knows which hard drive I’ve got some of them on!!!) Next time I’m feeling like a photo adventure, I might just go in search of BUGS in a more serious fashion.
Also, feel free to correct me on my insect names. I know my “dragonfly” actually has a different name thanks to thePalGuy and his blog featuring educated commentary on the various creatures he finds during his photowalks. (my commentary is usually limited to ‘this bug is PRETTY’)
