ABOUT ME

I live in a camper van with a couple of West Highland Terriers for company.
My passion is photography but it is a work in progress.
I am always willing to share what knowledge I have and can be contacted through the comments on this post or e-mail ADRIAN

ONE OF THOSE. (26/07/16)

I have had a quiet day today but did have a long walk this morning. Tomorrow I will have a wander into town and see what there is to see.

All todays pictures are insects. I’ll start with Honey Bees collecting pollen from St John’s Wart._V0G0306

  Almost a full load, the orange blobs are pollen sacks.

  This one has it’s head in focus._V0G0313

_V0G0314              This is a Dance Fly, Empis sp.

_V0G0315                            This one is awaiting a further look through the book. Had a look or several looks and am going for Rhipidia maculata.

_V0G0305                 A Green Orb Weaver.

_V0G0300                         Frog Hopper.

_V0G0297                           One of Those.

 

That’s all for today.

    1. Trevor the light was perfect, bright but overcast, the wind was very gusty. Rarely can one have it all.
      The Whatsit was on a Bracken frond and very lively. I upped the magnification to 3X but then couldn't find it.

  2. The dance fly looks metallic. Minute perfection! Beautiful photos.

    1. Marie, there are dozens of them and most have a metallic sheen, some are blue, others green but the most common here is a gold colour.

  3. More inspiring macro work, Adrian. Delightful! I wish, like the bee, I could get my head in focus!

    Best wishes - - - Richard

    1. Richard, it is always the problem with macro unless I find a dead insect and focus stack it.
