Camera Critters # 61

Camera Critters by Misty Dawn, go here to see who's participating.

Today for my CC post I'm going to show some photos from the insects I've been seeing. The first is a wasp that landed on my deck.
The second is a grub I found while trying to plant a rose bush.
This is a fly that was on the siding, they really are pretty neat.
The final one is a lady bug I saw while on a walk.
You can see a lot of great critters on the site above. Joan, hope you enjoyed the show.

The ladybird is my favourite :) Well done for photographing the fly without it flying away!

Hi Fishing Guy!

I love your critters for the week, even the grub, that will hopefully become food for the birds.

George said...

Is this what it means to catch the photography bug? You got great macros -- just keep that grub away from the rose you planted!

Denise said...

Very nice selection of fascinating insects, great close ups.

Rose said...

I'm not an insect person, but all of these photos were great. My favorite -- the Lady Bug!

These are wonderful up close shots!

I don't think too many of us females would be taking pictures of those bugs... Seeing them made me chill. BUT--of course, my sons all used to love bugs... So--I guess it's a 'male' thing!!!! ha ha

SAPhotographs (Joan) said...

Yes I did. Thank you Tom. Love them all but I have to add that our flies are more attractive than yours. :) They have hairy butts and stripes. :)

Sally in WA said...

Nice shots. The closest I like to get to bees is a photograph. Allergies, you know. :-)

Pietro said...

Splendid shots, Fishing Guy!
Oh, I like the Lady Bugs: they are so sweet! :-)

Luke Wiley said...

Interesting collection of bugs!

Larry D said...

Great closeups of these interesting insects.The bluebirds here in SE KS would live the grub!

Nice shots. When I first moved into this house and was digging up parts to plant a garden, I saw lots of those nasty little grubs. I stopped going barefoot that year. :-)

Rhea said...

That ladybug photo doesn't look real! Very cool. I'm not a big fan of bugs...but some do look so interesting.

Willard said...

A beautiful series, Tom. You have captured exceptional detail in the wasp photo and the rest are good was well.

Susan at Stony River said...

Great shots of all, even the wasp and (urk) grub...
...can we er, have kitties and ponies next time?
LOL
You're so right about the flies; when I was a child I loved the iridescence and those amazing tiny wings. This is a great Critters post!

Luna ( from Brazil ) said...

Oh Gosh! All those insects!I would like to hunt a little bit! LOL
But I would never hunt that cute Lady bug!
purrs and love

Joy said...

I have mixed feelings about the grub but I do love a good ladybug shot! ;o)

Adrienne in Ohio said...

Hi, FishingGuy! Great shots--I'm particularly fond of the ladybug. I've got so many aphids right now that I think we could feed an army of ladybugs. :(

I've unearthed several grubs this season as well. (We even treated the yard this year because the beetles were so bad last summer.) I scrolled up and looked at the rosebush. It's beautiful!

Old Wom Tigley said...

All these are great... I'm taking much more interest in insects now. They make great subjects for the camera..

Tipper said...
