As always, your shots are superb! Really enjoyable to view!

Here at my place, bugs flourish all year, there is never a shortage. Bad for housekeeping, good for shooting!
Regards!

Breathtaking detail - a masterly effort, Heinrich. Down here, bug season is 24/7, 12 months a year.

Thank you Bob, that's one thing about macro, one gets to see things that are impossible to see with the naked eye.

Hi Dave and thank you, the bugs seem to have overwintered quite well, the birds are another story, we have very few this spring.

Thank you Susan, I almost did not post the Black Fly, it's not really sharp but taken the magnification ratio into consideration I figured I might as well.

Thank you Rupert for the kind words, I'll be away for the squirrel frenzy, going for a couple of weeks to Waterton National Park.
