Here is a critter that I found Friday Evening. It was on a Bradley Tank that I took out of the Motorpool to work on. I donít recall ever seeing one this shade of brown, but it does match the color of the Bradley, Sand Brown. Itís one of the largest I have seen as well. I took it home and let it go in my backyard. I figure it will find more to eat there then in a Motorpool. Woody.

Here's a pic of flowers in front of a local bank. I've been having a hard time with these shots, and so Ben, a professional phtographer, gave me about 15-20 minutes of lessons. Thanks Ben!

QUOTE (swizz @ Aug 7 2011, 09:56 PM) *
wow! Both excellent and interesting macro pics.
The Robber Fly pic should be named Creepshow Erotica! smiley-laughing021.gif
Seriously though, both pics are nearly textbook quality, nice work! char098.gif


Thanks Swizz, somedays I just get lucky with a great photo op and just can't resist......the moth just happened to be there and I had the camera with me that day....lucky! Had to take several to be sure one would be in focus, it was about 7.5 ft in the air so tripod was out of the question nor did I have one with me anyway.
Sure do like the contrast of colors with the brown log backing. The next day there were double that many in the clutch and another clutch of similar size she laid under the bottom side as well. Now all the eggs have darkened to a brown nearly irridescent color.

Keep practicing Coalbunny, that one looks pretty good for an evening shot....hard lighting at that time to work around.
I'll bet you can get some great shots close up soon too. At least with a digital format you don't have to waste the film processing fees to find out how many duds one takes during field shots.

Great pics everyone, keep up the good work. char098.gif

Here is a cool tiny baby lizard (horney toad lizard?) that was only a little over an inch long, tail included. Hard to tell by the photo, but it has a black ant in it's mouth. happy088.gif

Never saw one this small before!! happy.gif

Very cool toad, I saw the ant when I enlarged it. He looks a little chubby.... my guess is "It looks like momma is feeding him well". giggle.gif
Another great macro Denise. It looks like good mineralization where you took that shot.

Thanks Swizz, it was a very fun picture to take. char098.gif I took that picture right in our yard, and yes there is some great mineralization here! happy088.gif Dan found another one in the yard and brought it over for me to see. Amazing how tiny these things are, and born with huge appetites. Good thing there are plenty of ants to go around here. laugh.gif

Here is a picture of a "gentlemanbug" on an unopened sunflower. It's a bit shy though since everyone keeps calling him a "ladybug". biggrin.gif

CP took a killer shot of the sunflower right after it opened showing a great example of the "golden ratio". Hopefully he will post it. poke.gif

You must mean this one Denise.... Got lucky on this late opening sunflower. I just love the golden ratio patterns one can find in everyday life.
This one even caught the color change in the golden ratio arcs.

Want to find out more about the Golden Ratio? ..... click over to the thread for more info. You can find this in your own hand and face measurements and just about everywhere you look in nature.
