I found some interesting insects in my background. Some I don't know what they are...

Thanks for looking.

Very nice series of images. 1 thru 3 are particularly good.

I agree that the 3rd is quite nice. The red stands out a lot... would have been good for that monthly contest that was about complementary colors. Thanks for sharing!

These gorgeous compositions make those ugly insects really look good.
That Tamron takes great shots. I'm afraid to buy one because of problems I've read about, but instead set my sights on Pentax 16-45 F4 lens, that I
hope to use for landscape shots and indoor photography, family, etc.
Great work Miss Alexx.

Nice, I'm not sure I have a favorite, I like them all. The eyes in 4 really look good. I got a shot of a bee similar to #2 not long ago. But not that good...

I just posted a couple of insects too, also not sure what they are but got some good shots. See what you think, it's a thread I named "Various Nature Shots" or something like that...
