Rose of Sharon activity .. 2 phots with two critters in each...

This is the first time I've captured 2 macro photos each containing two different critters with a plant as the point of contact.

The first one is a bee coming in and some type of small insect that almost looks more like a 'crab' then a spider .. I have no idea what it is: do you?
















The next shows a Dragon Mosquito on one side of a closing Rose of Sharon flower and another wasp family member that I can't identify. (Add the name in a comment please if you know, thanks.)












There was also a lady bug and ...

















.. some type of stink bug?












These shots are primarily macro shots of flowers in the Green House: tiny flowers on the spider plant, a tropical Plumarius and a Bougainvillea?












And lastly some Bee's in flight and a close up of that spider / crab insect.

I know this isn't a macro photo, but....boiling clouds!

This morning on the way into work, after a night deprived of sleep due to the winds and rain, the clouds were just Amazing. I didn't have my camera, so I had to use my phone.

Right beside my enjoyment of Macro Photography would be Weather Photography. The weather we get here is far from tame! I have many photos of the sky full of clouds boiling in this greenish-blue color and have taken hundreds of photos at a time to capture 3 or 4 photos of lightning.

So this morning, I resorted to my phone camera, not real good quality, but still able to capture part of the Ominous clouds that were out this AM.

One days like this I'm thankful I don't have to ride a motorcycle to work!

Crazy green bug landed on my windshield today...

While I was out today, and happened to have my camera, this crazy small green bug landed on my windshield. Any one know what it is?

I was able to take a few shots of it through the windshield before it left. Still impressed with my little inexpensive Canon PowerShot and it's Macro abilities.

Please let me know if you know the name of this bug. Thanks.

Apple Blossoms ... Bees, Bees and more Bees

The Apple tree out back is full of blossoms, and as a result is creating a continual stream of Bees. I took some photos today and it was a reminder of how much I enjoy taking pictures, especially macro photography!

These photos contain Bees in flight, Bees working, Bees ....

This is the only picture on my Blog that I've not taken, but since it is of me, I'm allowing it. Any guesses???



Those are the sutures that were put into my left Meniscus (knee cartlidge) yesterday to repair the "large bucket handle tear" that I got two weeks ago. Three in total.

Hornworm with Wasp pupae attached



Hornworm with Wasp pupae attached - found out front. Taken with Canon PowerShot Elph 110 HS (not quite as nice as the 710)
