This is my posting for the My World Meme. It is hosted by Klaus, Sandy, Wren,  Sylvia and myself. Won't you join in, I want to see where you live and thrive. Click to visit other sites.

The insects have returned to My World. Check out this Red Admiral on my porch.
I even saw a Dragonfly at rest.

A Water Skitter was at rest.

The Water Bugs were dancing.

I had to include this Red Ant home from Mexico. Check out the red giant.

Go visit some other worlds today.

Fantastic captures. You have got all of them.

Carver said...

You got some great shots of the variety of insects making a comeback. I think dragonflies are hard to photograph and you did a great job.

Denise said...

Wonderful critters from your part of the world, great photos as always.

Jack and Joann said...

Oh, you sure know your bugs, Fishing Guy. I like dragonflies.
They are cool. Joann P.S. Little Jack wanted the whole pool for himself, Even his Mommy couldn't get in with him.

The boys and girls are definitely back in town!

Carolyn said...

These are a wonderful collection of bugs....I can do without the ants but the dragon fly is wonderful. In Haida they are called "momajenga"(phonetic spelling).
Thanks for sharing your wonderful photos Tom.

Those red ants look big. Grab some chocolate syrup, and you've got a meal!

Wow! I'm glad the red ants around here aren't that big!!
The skipper is pretty. And I like his shadow just as much.

Fishing Guy, these are all wonderful images....I have tried to capture an ant and not had good luck at all. Maybe after seeing the one here I will try again.

These are great images.
However the butterfly is a Red Admiral not a Silver Spotted Skipper.

Thanks, changed the name of the butterfly.
