Bugs Besides Butterflies

Leave a comment

Butterflies sure are pur-ty.  But there are other bugs that photograph well, if you can catch them in action.  For example, bees are loads of fun.

Caterpillars are also pretty cool.  Although some might argue that they are just pre-butterfly.  Some might also argue that they are not hard to catch on film as they move rather slowly.  To those people I say, “Look, I took over 300 pictures in just two hours.  I have tons of material I would like to share, which means sometimes the lines have to be blurred a little.  So, how ’bout I write the blog post, and you just read, ok? Ok.”

“Ummmm, we’re cool right?”

But, the bug that really tops them all, the pièce de résistance, is the dragonfly.

Why is the dragonfly special?  Aside from just looking really cool, those buggers (no pun intended) are really difficult to get in focus.  I think it’s the clear wings.  I’m happy, I got one!

What can I say?  Bugs besides butteryflies…are beautiful!

Hey all! This is the spot where I get to tell you about myself. Can I tell you how incredibly awkward that is? I mean who are we really? It's really a question for the ages. But, if I must answer, I am a photography junkie, wannabe writer, wife with a full time job. On the side, I like to think that my cooking is above average and that I could probably hold my own on the TV Show "Chopped", although I probably couldn't. Life is good!
