They are cropped more than I Like, but using a DA* lens that usually doesn't hurt you much.

Agree, those are nice enough and no need to get closer. Great shots Norm!

Just posted a different image of this leaf hopper on the "insects" thread. Graphocephala coccinea is one of the most colorful and consequently most easily identified leaf hoppers in NA. This head- on view is not the best, as DOF is inadequate, but there was no room to position the camera around to the right (very dense growth of "weeds")

The Ladybird came have a special significance to the family after my father passed away, especially my mother and sister. They too have passed away and when I saw this with it's heart shaped spot, I had to have an image.

A lovely day here. Just got back from our AM walk - sunny, but we were in shady woods, and the air is wonderfully dry (but we need some prolonged, gentle rain - - definitely not the sort they've recently had around Kyoto). It is about as fine a July day as you can get in this area.

Losts of fine pics since I have posted. I have a few new ones.

Is this an ant or a fly and is that its jaw or is it eating?



I use to have pics of raccoons like this. Now its just grasshoppers. They didn't like this and hid after.


spotted my second bush katy. they hide by just turning around. This one was where the other was but younger.


More of these around here lately and I now know why. They also hide by moving to the other side of the stems.


The little ones don't move unless you are about to step on them.


Probably because they are use to crowds. Most every blade of grass has a critter. These two were next to leafhoppers and an assasin bug as well as many hoppers. If I put my hand down I could crush about 6. this is about 3 cms deep.

Got this one yesterday (Tuesday) and don't know what to call it. It's very small and looks a bit like a leaf-hopper (=Hemiptera)

I get lots of pictures of these but some are very tame and let me get right on top of them. As long as my eyes are covered they don't mind but without the camera in front of me they stay 1 step away.

Intriguing observation about what will spook a dragonfly into flight. BTW: You posted a long set of really nice insect photos above, all in one post. A PLEA: until the end of August, use a separate post for each image so we can run up the total number of posts and guarantee that some lucky Pentaxian will win a new K1, or possibly a new K1 mkII.
