1/100s, f9, 800ISO, autoWB, 90mm Tamron macro with extension tubes.

This bug covered in bits of dust is likely Reduvius personatus and it’s probably the last insect macro of the year.

I noticed this bumblebee on a bright yellow dandelion – it was not fast moving due to the cold temperatures. I like the dots of pollen around its head.

This morning, the light and fog were perfect to illuminate thousands of spider webs created by the Argiope spiders in the tall grass beside the highway.

This snipe fly (Diptera: Rhagionidae) had been hanging around my compost so I transported it to my bucket photo booth for a photo shoot today.
