This spring and summer, I’ve done a lot of macro photography, mostly of flowers, but I’m always ready for other subjects that make an appearance. Here are some surprises thus far this year…
“Yellowjacket Flies” – on a wild rose
OK – I’ve shown this before, but it was also a surprise. 🙂
Green Lynx Spider, on the back of a Sunflower. You have to look on the back of flowers, as well as the front.
Another Lynx spider, just not as green. This one was on a yellow coneflower at Cherokee Prairie.
This is another fly, but is really tiny. The real surprise here is the dew drop on its back, that I didn’t see until I downloaded the images. There is an image of the same flower you can see in the larger dew drop.
All images shot with the Sony Alpha77 and Tamron 180 macro lens, on a Manfrotto tripod and Really Right Stuff ball head.
All of these photographs are amazing. The last one is astounding!
Thank you, Victor!
I have noticed, that in almost every flower photo I have taken, there is an insect in that flower. And some of them are very odd-looking insects.
Hey, Sandy –
Thanks for visiting!
Wow! Beautiful images! The Lynx spider is amazing and I love the flower reflection in the droplet. Nice job.
Thanks, Jane! Appreciate your visit & comments!
Wonderful pictures Larry! I love the fly and flower shot! Hope you are enjoying your retirement; looks like you are able to do what you enjoy.
Nice. I enjoyed the main page as well. Keep taking those great shots!
Thanks Steve! Long time! 🙂
