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
ALL IMAGES WILL ENLARGE WITH A LEFT CLICK

GOT MY EYE IN.

I popped out insecting again this morning and took a dozen shots and only two were fuzzy. Happy as a dog with two tails I was.



This is one of the Miridae. I think it may be a Common Green Capsid Bug but as is usually the case I have my doubts. It's about 6mm long and a very obliging little creature.


These are Pollen Beetles. They are very small and have wonderful antennae. I'll start taking the camera when I walk the dogs and see if I can find something rare. These will enlarge with a click.
That's all for now.

    1. I am happy with these John. I am going to try for a background to replace the black which is a consequence of the strobe and shooting in shadow. I'll pop out in a minute as the sun has gone behind some high cloud

  3. I only ever see ants. Nice shots, you must have a good eye for insects. Do you have to crawl about on your hands and knees, seriously?

    1. Rachel, I tend to go for things that are sitting on leaves and flowers. Another good subject source is the mower deck. The method I use means getting a shot of fast flying, crawling or hopping things is impossible. Some folk kill them and others freeze them I do neither. If they don't want their picture taken then it's fine by me.
      I do kneel down but don't go crawling about. Getting back up gets harder as the years go by.

    1. Pauline, I'll start taking the set up with me during the summer. The images are down to the equipment rather than me.

    1. Trevor, I suspect I've got what is local to here but there is always room for improvement. Too windy and cool today I'll have another go tomorrow.
