    Pretty windy today but managed to get a few snapshots. Not the greatest but perhaps bugs you haven't yet seen.

    What appears to be a spider wasp, but am uncertain of i.d.

    reddish wasp

    grape leaf skeletonizer moth

    Very nice Jerry. Did you use your {secret} swiveling head on these? 8)

    Thanks all for the comments. They do appear a tad shaky due to gusting breezes.

    Frank, I did use the secret swiveling head on these but in this case it didn't improve my images. Made work a lot easier, however.

  8. Great shots, Jerry. Such details and colors. :!: #2 and #3 are the best. Very nice execution and lighting.
  9. If the wind was blowing you couldn't prove it by your image. Sharp and well done is how I would describe them.
  10. Jerry,

    These are wonderful. I can't detect the wind blowing either. They appear to be sharp and colorful. I especially like number two and three.
  11. very very good they are all sharp and well expose.

    Crystall, I too prefer the last two pics. The first one is quite poor. The one I meant to include as the first pic, the spider wasp, appears in a later thread entitled wasp, bee and butterfly.

    Clean and sharp. It gives a person something to look forward to.
  14. These are terrific Jerry. I like the way the antenna in the first picture are curled.
