PA Mountain Bugs...

Discussion in 'Macro, Flowers, Insects, and Greenery' started by lanthier, Jul 11, 2008.

  1. 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)

    PABugssm1-vi.

    2. Damsel 2 (105VR, 1.7TC, f16, tripod, 1/50)

    PABugssm2-vi.

    3. Frittilary (105VR, 1.4TC, f8, 1/250)

    PABugssm3-vi.

    4. Hoverfly (105VR, 1.4TC, f5, 1/1000)

    Very nice Rich, great colors and composition.
     
  4. Beautiful shots, Rich!
     
  5. Nice series Rich

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

    Cheers,

    Larry

    I know, I had a lot of fun with the Damsels, and they were very still, easy to capture...
