Garden Bug Macros

By brian1208
I got bored with doing my spread sheet for my Tax Return so decided to go bug Hunting in the garden instead.

This red Damsel was trying to hide in my Rosa Banksiia so I had to shoot one-handed whilst carefully holding the covering leaves away from the shot area.

I also had one of my "Tame" Droneflies turn up and a Greenbottle arrived as well so they are included in the Versions

All shot hand-held using available light

Still ducking finishing the spread-sheet I found a few more to add to the collection Smile

Thanks for your comments (and the vote Smile ) glad there are some others who like "bugs and things"

Tricia, the photography is easy - its stuffing the little blighters so they look lifelike that's the problem! Grin
