Spent July 4th weekend with my in-laws on their mountain "resort." This thread will highlight some more of the "bug" shots I managed to get, despite very volatile weather (could have been worse I suppose). Bugs are new for my shooting, as many of you know :wink:

Here are a few...

1. Damsel 1 (105VR, 1.4TC, f22, tripod, 1/25)

Nice series Rich

#1 and #2 are eastern forktails, immature female and male, respectively. The butterfly is a Fritillary, probably Aphrodite.

Cheers,

Larry

Thanks for the comments Larry, as well as the species IDs!

Nice collection Rich. Be careful though -- "bugs" can be addictive:wink::biggrin:
I know, I had a lot of fun with the Damsels, and they were very still, easy to capture...

Beautiful shots. Love the compositions. #2 is awesome.
Thank you Master!!!

Thank you Robert, the trip to the in-laws is always fun for me! I get treated like a king and get to do whatever I want :biggrin:
